ASHLEY COLLINS | SUMMER INTERNSHIP

I am a senior at Lawrence Tech majoring in architectural engineering. This summer I am experiencing my first internship as well as a new city. I am interning at Henderson Engineers in New York City. I first heard about Henderson when they gave a company presentation at school. Their laid back style, casual dress code, and types of projects drew me in. When I’m not working in downtown I like to be a tourist and explore all the things the city has to offer. This summer I was fortunate enough to go to Italy. It is awesome learning about all the buildings and its architecture in the architectural engineering history class, but to see it in person was amazing. Besides vacations, I recommend to the underclassmen to research what companies offer internships, go to career fairs, and talk to Professor Walters about internship opportunities. Experiencing and internship is beneficial because it teaches you more than just basic knowledge to be an engineer. It teaches you how to work on a team, understand all the components that go into a project, and what it will be like to have a full time job in the discipline you chose. Having an internship this summer in the city has given me so many opportunities that I normally would not have the option to do.  For example I was able to see the New Year’s Eve ball in Times Square as well as see an awesome view of Times Square. The picture on the right is of the Florence Cathedral with the famous dome in the background.

A note from Henderson Engineers

hendersonEngineering 3“Lawrence Tech is doing an outstanding job at preparing its graduates for careers in the design of building operating systems. Their commitment to an accredited 5-year Master of Science in Architectural Engineering gives their graduates significant advantages over graduates of other 4-year programs where curriculum content has been cut significantly. LTU graduates are now positioned among the most elite Architectural Engineering programs in the country. Highly sought after, well prepared, and most having impressive experience long before graduation, LTU Architectural Engineering graduates should expect no less than a 100% hiring rate!” — BĀ STEIN, Senior Recruiter

Engineering Society of Detroit Community Outreach

The Engineering Society of Detroit joins with Lawrence Tech in mentoring young students from our local community’s STEM Middle School.  The students participated in the Future City Competition on February 1st, 2017. They were the recipients of the “Architectural Engineering of an Integrated, High Performing City” Award. STEM Middle School Team l was sponsored by Lawrence Technological University. We thank ESD for their ongoing community outreach, and and their endless commitment to cultivating  young engineers.
