Open Positions

Each year IES offers, up to five, summer internships for structural engineering students. Through these internships, IES gives students the opportunity to apply their class work to real world projects and gives the students the opportunity to expand on the concepts learned in school. Come work on one of five teams (including a project manager, a project engineer, and a Revit technician) at our San Antonio office.  On this team, you will learn how your engineering calculations translate to framing plans and details within construction documents, how those documents are used to produce the shop drawings from which all of the structural members are fabricated, and attend site visits to see how those members are erected in the field.
