Summer Intern Spotlight | Dylan Shields

Join us in welcoming Dylan Shields to the Sebago Technics team this summer!

Dylan, a rising junior at the University of Maine in Orono, is pursuing a degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering. We’re thrilled to have Dylan with us, especially as the recipient of the Rick Day Memorial Scholarship. He’ll be contributing his talents at both our South Portland and Bridgton offices.

Welcome aboard, Dylan! We’re excited to see all the great things you’ll achieve with us.  

How did you become interested in your field of study?

I became interested in civil engineering because I have always been curious about what goes into designing a site. I like creating things from scratch, and civil engineering does that on a large scale.

What inspired you to pursue an internship at Sebago Technics, and what are you hoping to achieve during your time here?

I was inspired to work at Sebago because I have heard nothing but good things about the company. I was also interested because the company does a lot of work around places that I am familiar with. It’s always cool to work on things that I will be regularly close to.

How do you envision leveraging your academic background and prior experiences to contribute meaningfully to our projects and teams?

I am hoping that the University of Maine will have given me enough of the basic skills so that when I am introduced to new concepts, I at least have a base level of understanding.

Do you have any exciting summer plans?

I plan on participating in a couple of disc golf tournaments around the area. I just started playing in them in 2023 and really enjoyed it and hope to get a couple of good finishes under my belt.

As you embark on your journey with us, what specific skills or knowledge areas are you eager to develop or deepen through this internship opportunity?

I am eager to gain a good understanding of everything that goes into a site. I would like to gain a bit more experience with AutoCAD as well as other programs that civil engineers use.
