Through a new partnership with the University of Colorado-Boulder, Kiewit will help 200 engineering students put their classroom learning into real-world practice. The Kiewit Design-Build Program consists of a five-year commitment to support up to 40 students each year with significant annual scholarships, internship opportunities, service-learning experiences and mentorship.
The ability of university students to get hands-on experience benefits their career and Kiewit, who is constant need of new talent at its work locations throughout North America. The program will also introduce students to the wide range of career paths that encompass infrastructure engineering and construction.
“The Kiewit partnership and their generous contribution couldn’t come at a better time,” said Matt Morris, senior instructor in the Department of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering. “Several of our students are facing hardship and uncertainty due to the pandemic. The scholarships are keeping our students in school, focused on graduation. The mentorship and professional growth opportunities will provide much-needed stability and a positive outlook for our students.”
