Internship Programs


Hensel Phelps offers summer internships to engineering and construction management students.

Intern duties include assisting field engineers in layout, form design, and subcontractor monitoring, as well as assisting in change order preparations, plan checking, document control, quality control and safety monitoring. Specific tasking is an integral component of the internship experience and consistent with the relevant needs of the assigned construction project.


Typical training applies to Hensel Phelps’ award-winning safety program, on-the-go craft instruction, strong team building, exacting and competitive cost estimating and the company’s unparalleled corporate culture.


Each intern is given specific goals to achieve. Evaluations are based upon successful completion of these goals. Should the internship be mutually satisfying for the intern and the company, an intern may be offered full-time employment.


Scholarships may be available to outstanding interns who accept full-time employment prior to completion of their college career, up to a maximum of two semesters. Although interns are not eligible for typical fringe benefit compensation during the internship period, the intern is paid a competitive wage. Partial reimbursement for living expenses and travel expenses to and from the university/college for work are offered at most project locations.


Intern opportunities exist each summer in every district, with duties varying widely due to the diversity of projects. Each assignment provides a realistic sampling of the functions required of construction professionals during the early years of employment in the industry. Accepting an internship with Hensel Phelps is the ultimate opportunity to test your desire and aptitude for an exhilarating, fulfilling and prosperous career with us.
