Project Engineer

May - August 2019 • Mount Vernon, IN

What I liked

At SABIC, I was given the same responsibilities as any other full-time project engineer.

What I wish was different

I wish the term was longer. i.e. I wish I could choose my starting date in order to start working sooner in the semester.

Advice

There are typically ~20 other co-ops living in the same small town as you, so make friends with them! It will make your experience much more enjoyable.

Chemical Engineering Intern

May - August 2018 • Ottawa, IL

What I liked

Really good interactive experience. People in charge of program really designed it well and change according to feedback.

What I wish was different

Wish my roles (this was a repeat internship) was switched in order, but had a good time so not sure if I wanted anything to be different.

Advice

Not be afraid to try. It isn't a glamorous position and a lot of people who are more research oriented are against trying but the experience is great for any research position.

Production Engineering Intern

June - August 2017 • Jubail, Eastern Province

What I liked

Having to deal with real world problems was a great experience that I couldn’t have in a classroom environment. Also, I liked dealing with out coworkers from different backgrounds (operators, management, maintenance), which I believe helped improve my communication skills.

What I wish was different

Advice

Keep in mind that focusing on learning more about what all Chemical plants have in common. Those include sustainablity, safety, and communication. That will help you everywhere you apply for a job in the future.
