MATC Intern Spotlight:
Nate Huebner

Long before he knew that he could study structures or make a career of it, Nate Huebner was building them with Legos. The senior civil engineering major is currently assisting Dr. Aemal Khattak with his highway-rail grade crossing research as a student worker. Last summer Huebner interned at NTC, and worked on traffic and violation analysis for the project. Now, he aids with field work because of his demonstrated responsibility according to Khattak.
