The University of Washington Capital Planning and Development (CPD) provides comprehensive project and construction management services to the University in support of the University’s mission of teaching, research and community service. Each year the University requests funds for capital improvements. CPD assists clients and stakeholders in executing design and construction services for their projects.

Position Purpose: CPD’s vision for the internship program is to provide students with a supportive learning environment in the pursuit of an academic degree. The program is targeted at Juniors just admitted to their program of study. There are three areas of focus each intern will be involved in during their first year of experience: project management, construction management, and project controls. The goal is that during their second year an intern would be in a position to manage a project within the Job Order Contracting program, with the support of a supervisor. Projects that fall within the JOC program are typically small tenant improvements that are fast paced and an immediate need for the client.
