Job Posting: Bergmann

Email from a CEE alumna:

I will be at the career fair next Wednesday representing Bergmann. We are currently looking for an entry level bridge engineer in our Lansing, MI office (as well as several other positions throughout the company).  I figured that I would reach out and see if you could pass along the information below to your students. (I would really like to have another Husky in the office. We are overrun with Spartans!)

I have been with Bergmann for 3.5 years now as a Project Engineer in the Bridge Design Group (with 4 years of prior experience elsewhere). Our largest client is the Michigan Department of Transportation, however we also perform work for local agencies and the private sector. Some notable projects that we have completed are the rehabilitation of the Cut River Bridge on US-2, the University Drive over I-75 Diverging Diamond Interchange (the first one of its kind to be built in Michigan), and I-75 Segment 1 design-build (located near Pontiac).  We have numerous projects that we are currently working on including design-builds, bridge replacements, a railroad bridge replacement, a deck replacement, culvert replacements, load rating contracts, bridge scoping/inspection, etc.  Links to our company website and the position description are below.
