 What Former Interns Say

“I’ve spent four semesters co-oping in the substation design department while attending Georgia Tech as a civil engineering student. I was pleasantly surprised at how willing GTC was to get a co-op involved in their work and how willing they were to teach. If you are looking for a place that will let you do something more then busy work, then GTC is the place to be. I’ve worked on many projects since coming to GTC, and those [substation] projects have now been built. I can proudly say that I was an integral part of their design and completion.”

“This internship was a fantastic experience and I would highly recommend that any student considering an internship with GTC take advantage of the opportunity! The people are great, the work is interesting, and the compensation is competitive.

“I interned with the land services department. Some of their work includes debriefing interested parties on new projects, siting lines and substations and working with landowners. It’s not always easy to convince somebody to sell easements so GTC can build a power line in your front yard. I participated as both an observer and a document specialist. I created a schedule for 100 new transmission line and substation projects. I made a presentation for an official who spoke at an International Right of Way Association meeting in Minnesota. And my final big project was creating a list of front yard setbacks in metro Atlanta counties. The list delineates all of the zoning classifications in each county (about 30 per county), a description of each zoning classification and the front yard setback requirement.”
