HNTB is proud to be located in the University of New Orleans Research and Technology Park having the opportunity to engage the University’s students, faculty, and resources. HNTB has worked with the university in many ways. We have completed a soil strength study in conjunction with the UNO Engineering School studying how soils react to further compression when loaded by future levee lifts. We have engaged the UNO Transportation Institute when counting pedestrian and bicycle usage for the City of New Orleans. We have employed 3 UNO students as interns over the past 5 years, of which 2 have been hired as full-time civil engineers. At present, we employ 6 full-time UNO civil engineers in the New Orleans office and 1 UNO alum in our Baton Rouge office. Of the 3 engineering departments in the Gulf Coast District, 2 are led by UNO graduates.
