KFC has sponsored summer internships since 2006.  The number of internships has varied from 1 to 4 per summer and is based upon work load and availability of experienced staff to provide adequate mentoring.  We request that all candidates at least have structural coursework for steel and concrete material designs.  Decisions on summer interns are not typically made until late March or early April.
