Summer interns benefit from hands-on experience

June 12th, 2018 | By Amanda Adams

Over the past several weeks, Cranston Engineering Group’s Augusta office welcomed and worked with its summer interns. Area college students are working hard and gaining real-world work experience and interpersonal growth. The interns are diligently aiding the municipal, traffic engineering, development, administrative, and survey departments in a range of projects.

Penland Mayson, who has interned with the firm multiple times, is currently enrolled at Georgia Southern University and is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering with a minor in mathematics. His assistance with current municipal, traffic engineering, and development projects, along with his experience in the Cranston office processes and procedures, are invaluable.

Caitlin Safford is currently a sophomore at the University of Georgia and is working toward a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering with a minor in mathematics. She is an Augusta, GA native, and interestingly, she is a Latin scholar! Her assistance with the Cranston municipal, development, and civil projects are a great help.

Interns for the surveying department include Jackson Parsons and Brandon Goings, who brave the summer weather conditions as they learn the ins and outs of survey. We appreciate their dedication to helping this department for whatever it needs.

The firm is pleased to have so many agile hands and problem solvers joining our staff this summer.

UPDATE (7/20/2018): When discussing the internship opportunity at the Cranston firm, Safford mentions, “My time here at Cranston has been really eye opening. I have had the opportunity to experience first-hand the role of a civil engineer while being able to work with some really inspiring individuals. I have already learned so much in my short time here, and I think it is truly amazing to be able to work in the field of your intended major as a student. I am so thankful to Cranston for all the knowledge and experience they have provided and will continue to provide.”
