Penn State University
My name is Christopher Wilson. I am currently a 21 year-old student studying Biological Engineering, Natural Resources Option with a minor in Environmental Engineering at the Pennsylvania State University. My experience with erosion and sediment control originates from an internship I had with Stantec this summer in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania as a Water Resources Engineering Intern. There, I assembled erosion and sediment control plans, and did erosion and sediment control design on Microstation. During the internship, I was fortunate enough to gather experience outside of water resources engineering, and did some roadway work when other teams required assistance. The roadway work I performed was cross sections for Inner State-83 in York, PA, and drawing right of way boundaries. Throughout my time in college, I have overcome many life obstacles that have made my academic career far more difficult than anticipated. Overcoming the obstacles and getting through school has made me very ambitious and determined to finish my degree and aim to be the best student and future employee I can be.
