Process Safety Engineering Co-op

May 2022 - August 2022 Deer Park, TX
“I really enjoyed getting a glimpse of what day-to-day tasks process safety engineers must complete at a large-scale production facility. I was surprised at how much thought must go into safeguards and emergency response planning which are both necessary to operate safely. I had the opportunity to contribute to a large project that will be critical to safe operation of our Texas plants as new legislation is released in the next year. I loved working hands on with all different groups onsite, including with other co-ops, engineering, operations, management, maintenance, etc. ”

Mechanical Testing Co-op

May 2022 - August 2022 Wickliffe, OH
“At Lubrizol, starting on day one, I was given a large amount of responsibility with the work that I did. Within just a few weeks of starting, I was working on my own on different test stands, with the supervision of other operators who would periodically check on me. Additionally, engineers gave me projects to complete in my free time, when I was not actively performing any operations-related duties. Though the company has not been at its busiest, when I ask around for additional tasks and projects, I am met with high regard, and challenging projects, that are not simply busy work. Every project I have been introduced to, has considerable impact on the company, mostly relating to streamlining and organization, but it is very useful to the company. The engineers and my supervisors put lots of responsibility and trust upon me to work independently without being micromanaged, trusting that I am staying on task. With that being said, I have never felt stressed or worried about finishing something in a short amount of time, the company is very laid back and stress-free.”
