Civil Engineering Internships Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of civil engineering firm will I work with?

We only work with Cape Town’s best organisations. When it comes to finding you a Civil Engineering firm, expect to work in a reputable, forward thinking company with prestigious projects.

Is there a minimum time for a Civil Internship?

Yes, we provide 4+ week internships. Anything less than that means it is hard to get to grips with how a company works, and to make the most of the opportunity. However there is no maximum.

Will I live near my Civil Engineering internship organisation?

Yes, we always place interns as near to their organisation as possible. We’ll also make sure you know how to get there efficiently and safely.

Can I get experience in other areas alongside my Civil internship?

Yes we will help you to develop all the skills you wish alongside your main focus of Civil Engineering. If this means getting you some time with another organisation (even if outside of Civil) then we can make that happen too.

What kind of experience will I get in my civil engineering internship?

The organisations we partner with are looking for ambitious, enthusiastic interns that want a range of experiences. You should expect to have a wide range of experiences, simply throw yourself at it and watch opportunities emerge!

Do I need civil engineering experience to do this internship?

Not necessarily. The organisations look at a lot more than experience, they are looking for people that will help them achieve their goals. So, demonstrate good character and skills, and you’ll be in with a great chance of being selected.
