I had a lot of responsibly with my project and learned how to use a ton of equipment I will certainly use in my field. Alcoa has great company values and the employees are very dedicated and passionate about their work.
What I wish was different
I wish there were more co-ops and interns on site, and that it was closer to Central Pittsburgh, but overall it was great facility.
It is one of the best co-op experiences for CE and MSE majors, but you'll get the most out of it if you take charge of your projects and ask to be trained on all of the amazing equipment in the labs early on!
