Recognizing the importance of practical work experience in a young professional’s life and the need to develop their skills, Trotter and Associates Inc. has consistently provided internship opportunities to civil and environmental engineering students. This year, TAI has committed to providing internships to three outstanding young engineers.

Jake Nienaber of Sycamore is entering his junior year at the University of South Carolina.  Jake is majoring in Civil Engineering and also serves as a Supplemental Instructor for the University by helping support kids Physics and Calculus classes.

Kate Schildmeyer has just completed her sophomore year at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville where she is working towards her degree in civil engineering while competing on the rowing team.

Jake Robinson is going to be a Senior Mechanical Engineering Student at the University of Iowa in Iowa City, Iowa.  His secondary focus is civil engineering.

Each intern will have the opportunity to work with our experienced staff for the duration of the summer, allowing each student to gain practical experience while applying the knowledge that they have gathered from their respective universities. TAI hopes that these young professionals will gain a greater understanding of the field in which they aspire to work through our internship program.
