CARSON CITY, Nev. – The Nevada Department of Transportation is looking ahead to the summer road construction season by accepting applications through February for paid summer internships.
The internship program allows students to gain real-life engineering and construction experience with on-the-job training in civil and environmental engineering, including highway construction, maintenance, surveying and asset management, as well as traffic engineering, ADA compliance and civil rights, environmental stewardship and bridge inspection.
The internships take place May through August 2022 and pay up to $19 per hour, depending on education and experience.
Applications are being accepted for positions in Carson City, Las Vegas, Reno, Elko, Ely, Tonopah and Winnemucca through Feb. 28, although some internship positions may close sooner if many qualified applicants apply.
