Nitsch Engineering believes that an important element of building better communities with you is giving back to our professional community by supporting educational initiatives such as:
- Client Educational Opportunities: Nitsch Engineering provides our clients with opportunities to learn about a range of engineering and industry topics through our annual client seminar or via lunch-and-learn sessions where our staff present at a client’s office. Both types of programs provide AIA and ASLA learning units.
- Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day: Since 2002, 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!
- STEM Education for K-12 Students: From Massachusetts STEM Week to EWeek to the United Way of Massachusetts Bay and Merrimack Valley’s BoSTEM initiative, Nitsch Engineering tries to share information and build excitement about engineering as a profession for K-12 students – particularly those who are underrepresented in the field.
- Stormwater Research at UVA: In an effort to go beyond theoretical answers about the effectiveness of sustainable site design solutions, 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!
