March 16, 2020 07:00 AM
PennDOT Engineering District 4 met with King's College, Wilkes-Barre, to discuss recruitment with the college's newly formed School of Civil Engineering. Michael Taluto, CRC/SPO in District 4, reached out to King's College and set the meeting to formally discuss recruitment options.
King's college is interested in working with PennDOT to create a relationship that will be beneficial to the students. With the addition of the School of Civil Engineering to the college's program, their students will have more avenues to participate in PennDOT's summer internship program (ESTI). King's College will also have pool of students eligible for PennDOT's CET (Civil Engineer Trainee) program upon graduation.
King's College requested that PennDOT schedule engineers as guest lecturers to provide students' insights into the civil engineering profession, as well as taking students on current construction project tours.
