The City and Borough of Juneau Engineering Department employed six interns for the 2001 summer season.
The interns are students at schools in Washington, Montana and Oregon, where they major in engineering or architecture. The interns were Mike Weaver, engineering major at Pacific University; Megan MacDonald, geology major at Pacific Lutheran University; Mike VanderJack, civil engineering major at Eastern Oregon University; Peter Moore, architecture major at Montana State University; Elizabeth Hanley, landscape architecture major at University of Oregon; and Ryan Kubota, biomedical engineer at Oregon State University.
The students were mentored by Rod Wilson, CBJ project architect, and John Bohan, CBJ project engineer. Students were given tasks that challenged their organizational skills, and provided an opportunity to use their education. Projects the students worked on included: DZ Middle School, Riverbend Elementary School, Cope Park Erosion, Cope Park Tennis Courts, Anka Street Extension Project, landscaping/Wetland reclamation projects, Thane Storage Facility, and Airport Renovations including FAA reports.
Project work consisted of project file/drawing organization, preliminary and final design, bid preparation, construction observations/documentation, autoCADD drawings, "as built" drafting, building repair audits and related research.
CBJ's Engineering Intern Program is designed to give students experience in their field of study and valuable work experience. The interns help the engineering department with smaller projects that need specific attention.
Anyone currently enrolled as an engineering or architecture student who would like the opportunity to participate in CBJ's Engineering Intern Program should call Janet Sanbei at 586-0800.
