Assistant Project Engineer : Job Profile

Employer: Construction Systems Group, Inc. (CSG)
Job Title: Assistant Project Engineer
Job Location: McLean , Virginia , United States
Job Description:
Position available to work under the supervision of a senior engineer or professional engineer (PE) in a variety of areas related to civil/structural engineering. Provide assistance to engineers working on small to large-scale projects that require a team of engineers to complete a project. CSG provides services for large-scale, complex engineering projects that require engineers with extensive experience, as well as engineers with minimal experience to handle smaller engineering responsibilities.
Responsibilities include participation in the development and execution of engineering projects. This may include design, implementation, testing. The assistant also provides statistical reports and data on the engineering project to carefully document the process, purchase needed materials and equipment. This can involve defining and developing policies and procedures for engineering projects being developed as well. Work may involve travel to project sites to provide field research and ensure projects are completed in a timely manner and within budget guidelines.
At CSG we are consulting engineers. Our projects do not lend themselves to long-term assignments on a single site or to a single design. Entry-level engineers can expect to spend 75-80% of their time in the field and work on five to ten (or more) different projects every week including a mix of new and remedial design and construction.
You will rarely or never wear a suit at CSG. However, we are professionals and dress and conduct ourselves in a professional manner. You must be capable and prepared to display a professional demeanor at all times, maintaining the respect of trades and confidence of clients and peers.
Salary depends upon internship experience and academic coursework.

CSG is an equal opportunity employer.
