Internships

To be successful in the real world, you need real experience.

Our internship and co-op programs offer ambitious students the opportunity to apply skills learned in the classroom to actual construction projects.

Athena Engineering, Inc. offers paid and unpaid internships to qualified students students enrolled in construction, engineering or software-related majors. Internships last from three to six months and are open to students who have completed their first year of college-level courses.

Each intern is placed on a project, and mentored by a Project Manager or Assistant Project Manager. Our unique, multi-disciplinary approach provides a hands-on introduction to the world of mechanical system design and integration, building automation design and integration, and general construction.

Your experience will depend on the department and project you’re assigned to, and the point at which you enter the project. Our interns gain valuable experience at every project phase:

  • Request for information
  • Document control
  • Subcontractor coordination
  • Progress meetings
  • Safety meetings
  • Billing procedures
  • Submittal and shop drawing review



Attendance at various meetings – from monthly safety meetings to staff meetings and jobsite tours – is required. As a result, you and your manager must develop a set schedule of at least 20 hours a week for the duration of your internship.

While an internship is not a guarantee of employment, we often look to our intern pool for potential employees. To learn about current opportunities and apply, please complete the internship application.
