Ulliman Schutte Construction

Project Engineer Intern

May - July 2021 • Raleigh, NC

What I liked

I enjoyed the amount of responsibility and autonomy I was given. My housing was also paid for which was a huge financial benefit.

What I wish was different

I wish that I had more of an opportunity to interact with the corporate office and estimating and bidding work that goes on.

Advice

My advice for this role is to keep a very open mind and always be willing to learn. Pretty much everything will be very unfamiliar in the beginning so it is important to stay motivated, ask good questions, and learn from your mistakes.

Project Engineer Co-op

May - August 2019 • Baltimore, MD

What I liked

The team was phenomenal, friendly, and very fun to work with and learn from. Ulliman Schutte takes care of its employees and it shows. The company takes on interesting and challenging construction projects which are exciting to be apart of. US provided excellent housing and paid for my relocation traveling expenses.

What I wish was different

Although the project engineer role allows for some time working on the site, it is primarily performed at a desk, behind a computer, in a job site trailer. I wish that my role was more hands on and field oriented and that I had more work to do while I was behind my desk.

Advice

Ask for tasks and work in the areas that you find interesting.

Civil Engineering Intern

May - August 2019 • Baltimore, MD

What I liked

I really enjoyed the project itself as a whole. I also enjoyed the people I worked with and the place my job was located.

What I wish was different

I wish it would have been longer so I could have had a bigger role in the project.

Advice

I would share that in the moment I didn't really feel as I was learning a lot but when I went back through at the end of the summer and got to give a review, I learned more than I ever thought and that was a great feeling. My passion for this discipline only grew from this experience.

Field Engineer Intern

May - August 2018 • Perry Point, MD

What I liked

Ulliman Schutte provided an atmosphere that allowed plenty of learning opportunities and responsibility. Your input is wanted and used to innovate the job and allow for a more efficient work flow. It was a fast paced environment that made the day go by quickly and a sense of ownership to be felt at the end of every day.

What I wish was different

I wish I was able to stay on the project longer

Advice

Keep a mindset that your opinion matters and jump at every opportunity to try something new and out of your comfort zone.

Co-op Engineer

August - December 2017 • Perry Point, MD

What I liked

There are two main things I really enjoyed about this internship. The first is how hands-on the work was. I worked in a mobile office that was on the job site, so the engineers and I were able to discuss plans in the office and then go out and actually see them being executed. The second was that the work I did was meaningful. I was accountable for a lot of things (such as purchasing equipment and scheduling concrete pours), and having that responsibility gave me a sense of what the real world is like.

What I wish was different

As previously stated, I performed a lot of meaningful work. After talking to friends about their co-op experience, I would say that the pay for this internship is not as high as it should be.

Advice

Be very engaged in the work and ask a lot of questions. When I was on site, I was always asking questions about the things that I saw and it increased my understanding of the construction process.
