Yarger Engineering, Inc. has an opening in the fall of 2017 for a transportation engineering assistant in Indianapolis. The position is an undergraduate internship opportunity for hands-on entry level experience for the future civil engineer. The engineering assistant is expected to learn as much as they produce. The work would primarily be preparing traffic impact studies and designing roads. Traffic impact studies comprise data collection, traffic forecasts, analysis, alternative solutions development, report writing and creating report figures. Road plans consist primarily of alignments, profiles and cross sections. There may be field work setting out traffic counting equipment, collecting on-site traffic counts and taking field measurements. The exact scope of work would depend on the candidate's knowledge and ability.
Yarger Engineering is a very small firm, so the engineering assistant would be working directly for Mr. Yarger, the president and owner. The work environment is casual and flexible, but final work products are expected to be first rate. Innovation and more efficient methods are encouraged.
The ideal candidate should be smart, productive, inquisitive, open to new ideas and eager to learn.
