The majority of the questions are typical interview questions: What classes have you taken, What experience do you have, Whats the most challenging problem that you have encountered, etc. After the typical interview questions, there was 1 or 2 simulation questions to test your basic knowledge of engineering. It could be look over a CAD drawing and state what you see, determine the flexural capacity of a concrete beam, or how to read a work schedule. Overall the interview was very straight forward.
