Mechanical Engineering Intern

May - August 2019 • Rochester, NY

What I liked

The company is very inclusive and never made me feel like an intern, I was just a normal employee. Also they were very interested in expanding my experience, I was able to go on two work trips and get a first hand account of how consulting engineering works.

What I wish was different

It was hard finding work to do sometimes because my boss was not always available. But she did try her best to give me something to do every day

Advice

Be patient and ask a lot of questions!
