Engineering Technician Intern – BLM – Cedar City, UT

Position Type:  Internship

Open until:  04/21/2018, or until position is filled

Wage:  $14.07 / DOE

Location:  Cedar City, UT





The focus of the internship will be surveying and drafting.  The intern will spend time in remote areas surveying for water rights and construction projects. The student will then take the collected data and utilize it for water right proof maps and engineering design projects through AutoCAD Civil 3D software. The student will assist with engineering design. The student will also gain experience in construction project management and construction contract preparation. Extensive experience will be gained in the following areas under the supervision of a Professional Engineer:

  • Topographic, water right and construction surveys
  • Survey data management
  • AutoCAD Civil 3D drafting
  • Complete water right proof maps
  • Engineering design
  • Construction management

Skills gained will directly relate to the BLM’s Engineering Technical Series 0802 if the student were to apply for a position in this series.


Qualifications: Due to complexities of surveying and drafting it is recommended that the intern has had classes in surveying or drafting. Due to the remoteness of water rights and corner monuments on BLM land the intern must be able to pack survey equipment for long distances on steep terrain.

Applicants who possess surveying, drafting and construction management skills who are pursuing a degree in fields related to civil engineering and construction management will be given greatest consideration.
