"I applaud the effort to start a Construction Supervision Degree Program because of the shortage of good, qualified supervisors for the trades in Western New York." - Mark Brammer, President SDC Construction Inc.

"This sounds like a great option for your tradesman and future potential business owners." - Kevin Whitman, Project Manager DGA Builders

"The company my internship is with is Schuler-Haas Electric Corporation. They are a large union electrical contractor in upstate NY with offices in Rochester, Corning, Ithaca, and Binghamton. I selected this company due to its location to Alfred (Corning office) as well as its size, and because it is a member of the IBEW and NECA. I reached out to the branch manager who allowed me to come in for a one-day job shadow during the summer. Following this I asked if they would be willing to hire me as an intern and they gladly took me in.

A typical day as an intern begins with either showing up to the office to assist/ observe common duties of an employee (estimator, project manager, branch manager) or showing up to a jobsite to assist in construction while shadowing the common duties of a foreman. Tasks change daily and I am constantly being taught new things regarding the electrical trade, management techniques, and company culture.

So far, some highlights of my internship have been being able to learn new Accubid software to complete a bid, and attend a bid opening event; traveling to a Solar field to see how large scale, in field, operations are conducted; and lastly being able to assist in the placement, grounding, and wiring of high-voltage transformers with associated equipment." - Tim Wright, Alfred State College Student
