Mechanical Engineer Intern

January 2022 - May 2022 Dayton, OH
“I really liked how welcoming and understanding my boss and coworkers were. They knew I was new to this and that I had football and classes to take as well so they were very flexible with my time. I liked that they gave me real tasks and put me on projects with other engineers. I felt very independent but I knew that if I every got stuck or did not know how to do something I could always fall back on someone on the team. Overall I felt very welcome and and learned a lot of skills applicable to my major. ”
