Do you want to get your feet wet in the construction field? Do you have an open mind and are you ready to learn?
If you have initiative, ask questions, and can ask for more responsibility, you could be a great fit for an internship at Bowen Engineering!

You enjoy a challenge, and you know the gratification of a hard days’ work.
You don't mind a little dirt, heat or cold - it’s a lot better than doing the exact same thing day in and day out.
