International Internship – Summer in the UAE

Thanks to our Study Abroad Office here at Lehigh for helping with all the coordination and set up as well as our wonderful Civil and Environmental Engineering Department for the classes that helped prepare me:  I am spending this summer in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates interning with DeSimone Consulting Engineers!

For those reading this who are not as familiar with this region of the world: Abu Dhabi is the government capital of the same country that has Dubai as its current tourist capital [ I say current because there have been, are, and continue to be lots of construction projects throughout the country. Think largest malls and tallest towers. ] The United Arab Emirates is located on the Arabian Peninsula and has the reputation for being the most westernized country in the Middle East.  United because there are seven ( 7 ) Emirates similarly to how the United States of America has 50 states.

Hi, I’m Elaine. I am an undergraduate student at Lehigh University. I am studying Civil Engineering and Architecture through Lehigh’s Arts-Engineering program. This is a five year program through which I will graduate with two bachelors degrees. In addition to being a dual major here at Lehigh I have been a student-athlete in our NCAA Division I Women’s Rowing Team. I am involved in the Reformed University Fellowship. I am also a member of Lehigh’s chapters of the American Society of Civil Engineers, Society of Women Engineers, Chi Epsilon, and Tau Beta Pi. In semesters where my schedule has permitted, I have also been an Engineering Tour Guide for the P.C. Rossin College of Engineering. View all posts by luelaine15
