Engineering firms are looking for graduates with excellent degrees, strong numerical and analytical skills, and proven initiative. This CV shows that the person made good use of their summers and was eager to get some decent work experience. The average graduate will obviously not have years of experience, but if you have spent two summers interning, then employers will take notice. The inclusion of sports and interests shows that although the candidate is very keen and hard working, he also knows how to relax and has a life outside of work.
