I particularly enjoyed accompanying Jonathan - a Senior Engineer down to a water treatment plant construction site in Waikato. After I went through the site saftey induction process we took a look at the proposed sites for a bore water treatment plant, contact tank and holding tank. Some shear vane tests were done at the excavation to assess the strength of the soil. I was allowed to sit in on meetings between the client and multiple contractors working on the job, from which I gained valuable knowledge about the level of organisation that is required by consultants to complete a project on time and to specification.

It was beneficial being wastewater discharge project for a meat processing able to work alongside engineers who are at plant, designing erosion protection for a stream and different stages of their career development, from modelling an irrigation scheme. graduates through to technical directors. Everyone at PDP was extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful, making my time over the summer very enjoyable. Social activities at PDP are aplenty; a highlight for me was playing for the social football team. The exposure that I have received to different engineering problems has been really valuable and it has made clearer what I hope to do with my career. Through my internship I have developed a better understanding of engineering, a stronger initiative and more effective communication skills.
