Purdue University Student Chapter President Accepts Second Internship with Harrell-Fish

March 27, 2020

Colin Hindman has accepted a second summer internship with MCA of Indiana member, Harrell-Fish, Inc. (HFI). Colin is a junior studying Construction Management Technology at Purdue University where he is the President of the MCAA Student Chapter.

Harrell-Fish Internship

Colin reflects on what he will be doing during his internship:

I am continuing to work with the Project Management team in their Construction Division. I shadow and assist the PMs with their projects while also getting some projects of my own to manage under supervision. I also help out in estimating on occasion. I found the opportunity to work for them [Harrell-Fish] originally by being introduced to the VP by a family friend.

MCAA Student Chapter Involvement

As the Student Chapter president, Colin has been active with his student chapter:

Being a part of MCAA has both reinforced and built upon concepts I have learned in class, but most importantly on the job. My excellent experience working with HFI gave me a certain advantage when approaching the competition project. Conversely, the MCAA Student Chapter Competition taught me some valuable lessons that I’ve already been able to apply back in my internship.

With an increase in ransomware attacks and cybersecurity breaches, the United States Department of Defense (DoD) is taking steps to make sure construction projects are more secure during their design and construction. Many of the breaches over recent years have come through portals created for contractors building, installing and maintaining systems. In response, the DoD has decided that contractors need to have a mandatory level of cybersecurity in place. The United States Department of Defense has created the new Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) standard that will soon be required for corporations and entities that want to bid as a contractor, or act as a subcontractor, for DoD projects.…
