Ryan Marmet

Ryan Marmet

College of Engineering and Applied Science
Civil Engineering

Ryan Marmet, a civil engineering student from Denver, has interned with the City and County of Denver Public Works Department since 2007. The experience, he says, has been invaluable.

“Every project I’ve had the privilege of working on has emphasized a different aspect of civil engineering. Our design courses emphasize the benefits and drawbacks to various approaches an engineer might take in solving a problem— as I’ve worked for the City and County of Denver, I’ve been able to see these principles in action, and I’ve been able to witness firsthand the applications of academic knowledge in civil engineering.

“I’ve gained priceless insight into the challenges currently being faced by practicing engineers, as well as the innovative and ever-evolving solutions that are most effective in dealing with those issues.”

To students who are thinking about going to college, Ryan offers this advice: “When opportunity knocks in the form of an internship, don’t ignore it. The knowledge and experience you’ll gain will undoubtedly benefit you now and throughout the rest of your career.”​​​
