Summer Engineering Experience
Each June, Access Engineering participates in Cor Jesu's Summer Engineering Experience, a week-long program highlighting different engineering disciplines to rising high school juniors and seniors. Access Engineering participates in the introduction to civil engineering, leading demonstrations of site development design, stormwater drainage impact, and structural analysis. Young professionals at Access Engineering make presentations to students describing the transitions through high school, college and into a professional engineering career.
Job Shadow Day
Every fall, Access Engineering hosts several high school students for a 'day in the life' experience as a civil engineer. Students participate in a customized schedule based on the current projects at Access Engineering. Activities include Designing a Project with Civil 3D, AutoCAD 3D Drafting, Traffic Counting/Analysis. Students have lunch with the entire team, and discuss the local climate of the civil engineering industry. Young professionals answer questions the students have regarding preparation for college and an engineering career.
