• The student will learn about the company structure and operation of Pritchard Francis and will gain exposure and experience in most facets of our consulting practice working alongside engineers, drafters, administration and site personnel.

• We consistently have many projects at varying stages of completion, both in the office and on site, as part of WIL Program, the student will be given the opportunity to work in a productive manner on some of these projects whilst also gaining practical engineering experience hours, essential for graduation.
