One thing our interns have in common is their fear of heights and their love of the movie Inception. We would like to introduce you to our other Summer intern. Meet Justin Witters. Justin will be a senior this year at Messiah College, majoring in Civil Engineering. Want to learn about Justin, his love of chik-fil-a or why he picked RGS? Then I invite you to read below and get a little familiar with Justin. Welcome aboard!
Q: What made you decide to want to major in your field?
A: I’ve always enjoyed construction and designing things. I took part in the Future City competition in middle school and enjoyed playing SimCity and getting to design a model town.
Q: What is your favorite aspect of your field of study?
A: My favorite aspect of Civil Engineering is the variety. There are so many things you can do with Civil Engineering, from road designs to structures to construction management. It also gives you opportunities to go into the field to sites, which can be a nice break from sitting in an office all day..
Q: What are your hobbies?
A: I enjoy working on and riding bikes. I also enjoy playing games like SimCity and Cities: Skylines, games where you get to design and build cities and manage them.
Q: Do you have any phobias?
A: I’m somewhat scared of heights. I’ve been getting better with heights but still am not a big fan.
Q: What is your favorite movie?
A: It’s hard to pick one. Some of my favorites are Inception, The Great Gatsby, and basically any Star Wars movie.
Q: What is your favorite food –the meal you could eat every single day?
A: I don’t know if I could eat it every day, but I love Chick-fil-a. Their chicken sandwiches and lemonade are the best. I also enjoy a good burger or salmon.
Q: What is something you can’t live without?
A: I’d have to say a pet. I like having an animal around the house and getting to spend time with them, if they want to spend time with me.
Q: On a level of 1-10, how good are you at excel?
A: 9. For some classes at college we use excel a lot, creating macro programs to analyze loads on beams and determine the capacities and if they exceed limits.
Q: What excites you about RGS?
A: I’m excited about getting to work on real world projects using what I’ve learned in college. Also, I’m excited to work on and visit projects and be able to see what they are doing for the community.
Q: Why did you pick RGS?
A: It was a good combination of getting to use what I’ve learned, having the opportunity to learn more about Civil Engineering, and the work done here being one of my interests for possible after college work.
