Internships. It’s every engineering student’s chance to have a taste of what it’s like in the engineering field. There are engineering who don’t get internships from companies they really want to go to, while there are lucky others who were able to land internships on their dream companies. Allison Kassian was one of the latter.

Kassian was a civil engineering technology student at Metropolitan State University of Denver when she got an internship as a project engineer intern for GH Phipps. The project she was assigned to for more than a year was the construction of the Aerospace and Engineering Sciences Building at the University where she goes to.

“I am super proud and excited for this to be my first project,” Kassian says. “I was here from the beginning and seen it come up from scratch. It’s a good feeling to be able to contribute to the future of my own university.”

Last May 2017, Kassian graduated and will be continuing with GH Phipps and this time as a full-time field engineer.

Some of Kassians responsibilities as an intern made sure that the $50 Million project was right on track. She conducted weekly safety checks on the site, conducted tours, and monitored the process through documentation. Being a part of the team, she was able to see the building’s innovative spaces firsthand. According to Kassian, more than half of the space will be utilized for laboratories that focuses on growing skills and technical expertise.

Her favorite spot was the structural testing room. “I’m most excited about the structural testing room, where students will be able to see if the structure of a certain project is sound. That kind of hands-on training is essential.”

Being an intern in this project at her Alma Mater, gives her comfort knowing that she was part of its creation. Before the final beam was placed at the top of the building, Kassian was given the opportunity to sign her name on it. Therefore, she was able to make her mark on campus, literally.

“My name is written into the building,” Kassian said. “I guess a little part of me will always be on campus.”
