C.T. Male Associates Interns Gain Real Life Experience
This week, we are celebrating Engineers week (E-Week)! This event promotes the engineering profession and helps to raise public awareness of engineers’ positive contributions to society. E-Week also helps to promote the importance of students completing high level technical classes such as calculus and physics and motivating young minds. To learn more about the various programs offered to help students get involved with engineering please click here.
C.T. Male Associates hires numerous interns each year to help contribute to projects and gain important real–life experience. Interns can be high school or college level students. In the Civil Engineering department, interns have the opportunity to work directly with licensed professional engineers on a variety of projects.
One such project that our interns had the chance to work on was the replacement of the RAS and WAS pumps for the North and South Wastewater Treatment Plant in Albany County. Existing steel pipes and fittings for both pumps were evaluated using ultrasonic equipment to determine pipe thickness and possible replacement of sections. The next step was the design and replacement of the pumps, intake and discharge plug valves, check valves and associated piping in the two plants. The project also included upgrading control equipment and installation of variable frequency drives. This will result in substantial energy cost savings. For more details about this project, please see our project portfolio here.
C.T. Male Associates supports the goals of E-week and welcomes interns. If you are interested or know of a student please contact Sue Lukaszewski at [email protected].
