What we are looking for

SCS Engineers is looking for a summer 2024 intern for our Winchester, VA office. SCS’s goal is to provide a student intern with valuable technical and engineering business experience through our diverse range of projects for the clients we serve. Also, we believe this opportunity provides a student intern the ability to explore the beginnings of their own career path. As an intern, you may work with us on environmental monitoring, assessment, and remediation projects. You will work 40 hours per week typically. Interns will be in the field 75-80% of the time (75% of that time requiring overnight travel), so it is a lot of hands-on learning in the field.
