Notre Dame’s campus has seen lots of construction activity—and one of our students has helped bring some of those projects to fruition. Danielle Neumeister, Class of 2015, spent the summer of 2014 as a project engineer intern with Whiting-Turner Contracting Company, one of the country's largest general contracting and construction management companies. She learned the administrative side of the business—organizing schedules, checking in on contracts, receiving bids—and also spent time on campus, assisting the W-T project managers with the Gibbons tower and Doyle Dining Hall renovation projects and the closeout of the University Academic Building. A mathematics major and physics minor, Danielle has just completed the first phase of NDMU’s 3-2 program; she’ll spend the next two years in the University of Maryland College Park’s civil engineering program.
I’ve learned a lot over the years here. Being able to have the renovations be part of my internship was a great experience.
