The Kiewit Design-Build Scholars Program is a year-long scholarship program at the University of Colorado Boulder that seeks to engage engineering students in meaningful conversations about their future careers.
This program combines scholarship assistance with experiential learning opportunities to ignite students’ passion for the infrastructure industry. As a part of this program students can expect to participate in jobsite tours, mentorship programs, hands-on learning experiences, presentations, workshops, networking, and much more. Thanks to our partner, Kiewit, we are able to connect the Kiewit Design Build Scholars Program cohort to resources that will help them develop pertinent industry skills and knowledge sets. Application to this program is open to all College of Engineering and Applied Science students with an interest in infrastructure design, engineering, and construction.
Kiewit is one of North America’s largest and most respected engineering and construction organizations. Kiewit’s commitment to safety, quality and environmental stewardship are ingrained in everything we do. It’s visible in our core values, the work that we build and in our people.
Industry sectors: building, industrial, mining, oil, gas and chemical, power, transportation, water
As Kiewit specializes in the design-build environment, there are career paths for both design engineers and construction engineers
