This summer, the NYC Department of Buildings will host its first virtual Summer Enrichment Program for undergraduate & graduate students interested in engineering (civil & mechanical), architecture, construction management, construction inspection, sustainability, and public safety. For those interested in careers in the construction industry, in the public or private realm, this program will provide a significant amount of context for your future career.
Across nine virtual seminars in July & August, held weekly through GoToMeeting software, our industry professionals (architects, engineers, sustainability experts, and construction inspectors) will educate you on issues such as construction safety engineering & enforcement, building code development & revision, architectural plan examination, disaster response, and sustainability & the energy code, among numerous other topics. At the conclusion of the program, students who virtually attend all nine seminars will receive a Certificate of Completion from the DOB that they can include on their resumes. Seminars will take place on Wednesdays from 5pm to 6:30pm.
Additionally, students will receive advice on their resumes & cover letters from Human Resources professionals.
To apply for admission to this virtual program, please send your resume to YouthEngagement@buildings.nyc.gov. Resumes are due by Friday, June 19th, by midnight. Accepted students will hear back regarding potential admission before the program begins on July 1st.
