Summer Internship Feedback
"I enjoyed working on a variety of projects and being able to grow skills in different areas (working with Civil3D, but also working on reports). I also liked working with different people because you get to learn different styles/thought processes and then start to develop your own. Of course, the culture at Dunaway is amazing and I loved talking with/meeting new people!"
Sydney Anderson, 2022 Civil Intern
"I liked the fact that the interns were highly valued. The work we were given was important work and it was cool to work on actual live projects and make an impact even over a short time period. This was a great internship and I am super fortunate to have worked with such a great company that made work feel like home. Thank you all so much for giving me the opportunity, and look forward to hearing from you all soon!"
Nathaniel Theis, 2022 Civil Intern

Katherine Wojna, 2022 Civil Intern
“Dunaway truly has great people and a great environment to work in which made it even easier to be comfortable learning and experiencing new things. I have been completely blown away since day one in regards to the projects, people, and the company itself. I could not be more thankful for this opportunity!”
Gracie Johnson, 2021 Civil Intern
“This was my first time working at a company where there are women in management positions and it was really inspiring. I learned a lot that I hope to implement in my professional career about coordination, management, and communication among team members and clients.”
Shelby Horton, 2021 Landscape Architecture Intern
“In addition to meshing really well with the structural team, everyone here was eager to help me grow and and always welcoming to answer questions or guide me through this process.”
Matthew Tate, 2021 Structural Intern
“The thing I most liked about my internship was getting to see how things are designed and actually getting to go out onto the site and see everything that was on paper in real life. Also, being able to experience and see firsthand what being a civil engineer consists of has made me even more excited about my future in this career field!”
LeeAnn Schaller, 2021 Civil Intern
“I greatly valued that in both the private and public sectors, all interns were given responsibilities that had an actual impact on a project. I also greatly enjoyed collaborating between different engineers as well as others in the office, such as the survey crew, the structural team, and GIS.”
Christian Pimmler, 2021 Civil Intern

Eric Woolsey (Texas A&M University)
Environmental Intern to Environmental Scientist
As a summer intern, I was given the opportunity to see what a career would be like in environmental science. I was offered many learning opportunities, the ability to work with extraordinary coworkers, and exposure to clients facing a variety of environmental challenges. Upon the conclusion of my internship, I was offered a position at Dunaway and could not be more ecstatic to begin my career at a company with honor and respect for its employees and clients alike.
Emily Ehringer (Texas A&M University)
Structural Intern to Graduate Engineer
The 2018 internship program was my third internship with Dunaway, and each year, the program blows my expectations out of the water. They really do an amazing job integrating the interns. Compared to my classmates’ internships, Dunaway is way ahead of the other programs.
Tanner Underwood, PE (university of texas at arlington)
Public Sector Intern to Graduate Engineer
In such a welcoming environment, I never felt afraid to ask questions and employees around me were willing to help me grow. It was evident the people of Dunaway took their Core Values seriously and strove to meet that standard, which really piqued my interest. Midway through my last semester, I received an offer to join Dunaway after graduation, which was very exciting since I already knew I wanted to work here. The best part was that I already knew everyone.
