Engineering Co-Op

January 2023 - April 2023 Dayton, OH
“I really enjoyed the projects that I got to work on. I worked for the Building Optimization Group (BOG) at HEAPY, which focuses on commissioning and energy analyses. My main passion for engineering is to be able to work in the sustainability and energy field, and this co-op already provided me an opportunity to do that. Some of the projects that I worked on included creating and testing functional tests for lighting controls, developing final reports for commissioning projects, and performing energy calculations and trend data review for an energy audit. I also really liked that site visits were made a priority. My team made sure to get me out into the field whenever a good opportunity came up. Over the course of my co-op I got see generator and air handling unit testing, as well as test VAV boxes and lighting controls myself. These were great learning opportunities that reinforced the work I did in the office. Finally, I loved the culture and work environment at HEAPY. My team was extremely supportive of my development and everyone I worked with made an effort to help me. I definitely felt like I was a valued member of the team at HEAPY. ”

“I enjoyed how open everyone at the company was to answering my questions and just talking about what specifically they did. My team also made sure to tailor my experience to what I wanted. For example, I wanted to make sure to go on a few site visits and they made it happen. It was also really rewarding seeing how much autonomy I gained in my tasks as the summer progressed because they trusted in my work.”
