Summer is quickly coming to a close, and that means so are our students’ internships. For Rashad Tiam Watt these past few months have been spent in Boston, working at the design and consulting company, Stantec, as a Landscape Architecture Intern.
While there, she’s been involved in many tasks including: CAD drafting plans and construction details, redline revisions, site plan renderings, precedent image board preparations, 3D modeling, construction administration and observation, and SITES certification. She’s even had the opportunity to design for a project in Brookline! Rashad said that while at Stantec, she’s gained more knowledge about the profession through attending meetings, site visits, and presentations with clients. Aside from enjoying her internship, she’s also enjoyed exploring the city of Boston and the beautiful spaces the city offers.
The Department can’t wait to see internship experiences like Rashad’s carry-over into the classroom. A big thank you to Rashad for sharing her internship experience with the Department, and from all of us, congrats on the great summer internship!
