– Dustin Large, Division Manager

“I went to the Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science & Technology (now Saskatchewan Polytechnic) for Computer Aided Drafting and Design and was hired with McElhanney’s co-op program for my 2nd and 3rd work term. At the end of my 3rd co-op term, I was offered a full-time position with McElhanney’s CAD department. I started my career as a draftsperson, then project coordinator, I moved onto Business Development, and then in 2021 I was hired as Pipeline Development Division Manager. Throughout the years, McElhanney has not only allowed me to take my career in different directions but provided me with education and professional development opportunities in leadership, management skills, and business development.”

Student testimonials

Punya Arora, University of British Columbia (UBC)

With my co-op term at McElhanney coming to an end, I would like to express my gratitude to everyone that I have worked with or had the pleasure of getting to know over the last 8 months.

From the start, the company’s innovative and inclusive culture resonated with me. I have had the opportunity to collaborate with and learn from members of my Traffic and Road Safety Team, but also members of teams in different offices and disciplines. Because teamwork and sharing knowledge is encouraged at McElhanney, I feel I have a diverse professional network to ask questions and share ideas.

Being involved with McElhanney’s Young Professionals group allowed me to connect and form new friendships with people that are or recently have been in the same shoes as me. I attended several networking, social, and athletic events that helped “break the ice” and create an even more comfortable work environment while expanding my network further.

My first project with the Traffic & Road Safety team was to assist with the traffic analysis for the Halston Bridge Lane Closure which pushed my boundaries and helped me build my technical analysis abilities. We provided the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (MOTI) the expected traffic operations impact (such as level of service, queue lengths, and delays) during the construction period. It was gratifying to see the end result as the actual conditions during construction matched our models.

After 8 months, I feel confident tackling some projects from start to finish, with periodic questions and clarifications from my project manager. Most recently, I completed the analysis, figures, and majority of the report for a Traffic Impact Assessment for a new multi-family development in Comox, BC.

I highly recommend McElhanney to students looking for a placement where you will feel comfortable pushing your boundaries, collaborating across disciplines, and having a blast doing it!

Nicole Gamm, University of Victoria

During my co-op at McElhanney, I gained extremely valuable work experience that I will carry with me into the final year of my degree and into my future career. Through each project, my coworkers have supported and encouraged me as I worked on challenging assignments. For coop students who are eager to learn, are ready for a challenge, and want to step outside their comfort zones, McElhanney is the perfect place. The people at this company are also wonderful and it is a fun place to work.
