At Abbott we have purposefully designed our internship to compliment your education in construction management. Our interns function as Project Engineers, however we work diligently to ensure that they are exposed to a wide range of experiences during their time with us.
While the specifics of each internship will be shaped by the project you are assigned to, our goal by the end of your internship is that you will have gained exposure to 4 main areas: Estimating/Pre-construction, Project Management, Business Practices, and Safety.
Each of those areas is broken down into key functions as follows:
Objectives: Understand the planning, and preparation that goes into a project before Construction begins.
