Whether attending networking or educational events offered by an industry organization; serving on their town planning boards, conservation commissions, downtown associations, and finance commissions; or helping improve the engineering profession by educating future engineers, Nitsch Engineering’s employees are helping make our communities stronger.
A/E/C Industry Support
Nitsch Engineering supports staff involvement in more than 40 professional societies/organizations related to their fields of practice, including American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts, Boston Society of Architects, Boston Society of Civil Engineers Section/ASCE, Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce, NAIOP – Massachusetts, CREW Network/CREW Boston, Society for College and University Planning, Society for Marketing Professional Services – Boston, Urban Land Institute – Boston, USGBC – Massachusetts, and Women’s Transportation Seminar – Boston. Through this industry involvement, our employees become well-informed about industry issues and opportunities, and are therefore able to better serve our clients – while, at the same time, becoming more well-rounded professionals.
Nitsch Engineering believes that supporting engineering education is critical to our professional community. We support a number of educational initiatives:
- Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day: Since 2001, we have held an annual event for 6th – 12th grade girls to educate them about various engineering fields (we have a different theme every year) and to demonstrate that engineering is fun! For more details on our annual event, including a list of resources and how to sign up to be on the invitation list, click here.
- Stormwater Research at UVA: In an effort to go beyond theoretical answers about the effectiveness of sustainable site design solutions that strive to mimic natural ecological patterns, Nitsch Engineering worked with the University of Virginia (UVA) on the Sustainable Stormwater Management: Validating Water Quality and Quantity research project. The project has provided UVA students with “real world” experience and the university with ongoing analysis of the stormwater system performance.

- Cooperative Education Programs: Co-op programs provide a wonderful opportunity for students to get hands-on experience by alternating semesters of academic study with semesters of full-time employment in our civil and transportation engineering departments.

- Speaking to College & University Students: Our staff has spoken to engineering students at Tufts University, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, UMass Amherst, Wentworth Institute of Technology, Carnegie Mellon University, and Northeastern University … and we’re always willing to go somewhere new!
