FGI Initiates Summer Internship Program

 The Fabricated Geomembrane Institute (FGI), based at the University of Illinois/Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), has concluded its first student internship program.

The main objectives of the program are to introduce future civil engineers to the field of geosynthetics and to provide a connection between possible employers and the many undergraduate and graduate students at the UIUC.


One of the FGI’s member companies, Colorado Lining International (CLI), participated in the inaugural internship program during the summer of 2016. CLI hired Guo Cheng, a graduate student studying geotechnical engineering in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the UIUC.
