Graduate students Amir Goharpey and Prashanth Muralidhar have been named this year’s Louis Berger Fellows at NJIT. “The 2016-2017 fellows represent an outstanding group of planners and engineers and are among the strongest group Louis Berger has welcomed so far — a fact due in no small part to the strong relationships we have cultivated with NJIT,” said Bob Nardi, Louis Berger senior vice president.

In 2014, NJIT and Louis Berger established a six-year special graduate internship and fellowship program for students pursuing a master’s degree in civil engineering, environmental engineering, architecture, engineering management, mechanical engineering or industrial engineering. The program is comprised of a comprehensive fellowship award and a professional international summer internship at one of the world’s leading consulting organizations.

Goharpey and Muralidhar presented highlights and key insights from their experiences as summer fellows at an event held in mid-November. Goharpey worked in Washington, D.C. on a municipal asset management project and Muralidhar worked on metro projects in Doha, Qatar. Click here to view their presentations.
