Clark Corporate University

Clark's internships allows students to explore the fundamentals of construction management. Interns will find themselves on a project team performing tasks in field engineering, project management, and/or acquisitions. Depending on the size and need, an intern will have specific assignments in one or more of these areas. A summary of those areas include:

Field Engineering provides an understanding of how the building comes together from the ground up. Field Engineers lay the groundwork for projects and coordinate the "nuts and bolts" of work on site.

Project Management provides an understanding of both the day-to-day and long-term business and financial management associated with construction projects.

The Acquisitions or "front end" departments include preconstruction, estimating and purchasing. All provide an understanding of how Clark develops and maintains relationships in order to acquire new opportunities.
