Alignment is very fortunate to be able to partner with Hampton, Lenzini and Renwick Inc. (HLR) and Judson University to provide students interested in architecture and civil engineering with real-life experience in the field. These experiences allowed 15 students to solidify their goals for the future and determine if this is the path for them.
During this internship students learned how civil engineering ties into architecture and design. Garrett Burton, one of the interns described his experience at Judson as having the opportunity to look into the more creative side of architecture/civil engineering. “We didn’t focus on the more technical parts, but we did a lot of things surrounding creativity.” says Garrett Burton.
Intern Hannah Savella commenting on the HLR portion of the internship described it as, “learning about engineering [through HLR] was an incredibly eye-opening experience. Seeing familiar classroom concepts used in the real world and affecting our lives really makes what we learn feel far more important and grounded.”
Once again, Alignment would like to express its gratitude to both HLR and Judson University in allowing us to host these ambitious students. Their generosity and the education they are providing to these interns are helping to shape future generations of civil engineers and architects.
