The program then transitions participants to the Drafting and Engineering world, encompassing flexural members, wall panels, cladding systems, and lateral systems. Interaction with Sales and Project Management departments facilitates exposure to architects, engineers of record, contractors, and owners. The approximately four-year rotation concludes with active promotion for engineers to sit for the Professional Engineer examination. While preference is for engineers to stay in the D&E department, the program encourages them to pursue areas they find enjoyable.
The final stage of the EDP delves into the design realm, incorporating knowledge gained from both production and field experiences. Design work progresses from flexural members to wall panel design, lateral analysis, and total system design. Upon completing the EDP, engineers are well-prepared for the PE exam and eligible for diverse positions within the company.
Wells believes in the value of hands-on experience, making the EDP an integral part of their commitment to developing skilled and versatile professionals in the precast industry.
