At Brooks Ransom Associates, we foster a work environment that encourages growth and innovation. Active mentoring, continuing education opportunities, and open forum discussions allow our employees to become their best – and collectively, create the Fresno Metropolitan Area’s most progressive structural engineering firm. 

Internship Program

Brooks Ransom Associates prefers to hire from within by onboarding new engineers through our intensive, mentor-led internship program.

Each of our interns is assigned a mentor who walks them through our two-part internship program:

  • First, each intern completes a pre-planned training curriculum that lasts one to two months, depending on the intern’s abilities and engineering knowledge.
  • Then, the intern assists their mentor with daily, billable projects by performing analysis and drafting. 

Program Goals

In addition to a chance for high-performing interns to join the Brooks Ransom Associates team, we hope to provide our interns:

  • An environment in which they are encouraged to learn their trad, via gradual, attainable milestones.
  • Real-world experience that will teach lessons that cannot be learned in the classroom.
  • Time and project management skills that will make the intern an asset to any firm.
