The field of transportation is rapidly becoming a popular career choice for undergraduate engineering students. Many work opportunities are available in the area of transportation including computer software analysis, field testing, and consulting. Unfortunately, these opportunities are not always accessible to younger engineers without experience. Mountain-Plains Consortium at Colorado State University is bridging the gap between employers and students with the Northern Colorado Transportation Internship Program (NCTIP). Since its inception in January 1998, NCTIP has placed approximately 25 students into working environments across the Front Range. This report includes writings of three interns summarizing their NCTIP experiences. The students completed internships between August and December 1998.
