The McCarthy Engineering internship has come full circle on July 18 as we welcomed former intern Anderson Deutschman back to the McCarthy Engineering team as a Project Engineer.
As a Project Engineer, Anderson’s responsibilities will include assisting the team on various projects such as permit approvals, plan reviews and creating AutoCAD drawings that will help team members visualize and analyze designs more easily and efficiently.
“I am excited to work for McCarthy Engineering because I get to work on something new every day and I really enjoy the community within the office. I look forward to taking on these new tasks and responsibilities as I further my engineering career,” said Anderson.
When asked how interning for McCarthy Engineering influenced her career choice Anderson said, “I really enjoyed interning at McCarthy Engineering as I was constantly learning and contributing to projects. I felt that having a good amount of responsibility as an intern gave me a taste of what working as a full time employee would be like. Something that was key in deciding to continue working for McCarthy Engineering was the fact that I had the ability to work on many different types of projects and become a more well-rounded engineer.”
“I am most excited to work on landscapes and lighting projects, which is something new for me. Also, I am excited to see a big project I worked on as an intern move into the next phase. In the future, I would like to get involved with some structural projects, especially residential ones,” said Anderson.
McCarthy Engineering actually hired Anderson in September 2021 at the completion of her internship. Before starting her employment with McCarthy Engineering, Anderson finished her senior year at Villanova University. “Upon graduating from Villanova in May of 2022 with a B.S. degree in Civil Engineering, I took some time and traveled to a few places including Tennessee, Florida and New Jersey to visit friends. In the remaining weeks I had left after traveling, I spent time with my family,” said Anderson.
“This upcoming Fall I plan on taking the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam so I can become an Engineer In Training (EIT). When I’m not working I love drawing, painting and doing anything creative. Most often, I spend my free time hanging out with friends and family, and I enjoy going to the beach or visiting Philadelphia on weekends,” said Anderson.
