8-19-2022

We're thrilled to have several interns joining us at Parametrix this summer! We strive to provide challenging, hands-on project experience to students entering our industry. Inspiring young professionals early in their career is critical for the future of our profession and for our purpose of restoring the health of the planet for future generations.

Meet Trevor DeFord, an intern with our Bend, OR Community Building team. He is from Albany, OR and currently attends Oregon State University with plans to graduate in spring 2023 with a degree in civil engineering.

Why did you choose an internship at Parametrix?

I participate in the Multiple Engineering Cooperative Program (MECOP) at OSU so Parametrix kind of chose me for this internship but I am excited to start working here and learning how my degree is implemented in the real world.

What would you like to accomplish during your internship?

During my internship I would like to learn as much as possible about my field of work.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?

Outside of work, during my free time I like to go hiking, camping, fishing, golfing, and pretty much anything outside.
