During the summer of 2018, MDE student Audrey Moeller worked as a Distribution Project Management co-op at Duke Energy in Plainfield, Indiana As part of her co-op, Audrey managed smaller distribution projects such as replacing sensors on power lines and other improvements to the grid as well as analyzing and investigating financial reports.

Her favorite parts of working at Duke Energy include the company culture and how wonderful and helpful her co-workers were. Duke Energy also focuses a lot on safety and environmental preservation, something that Audrey is passionate about. Audrey is a Senior in MDE studying Visual Design with a minor in Product-Life Cycle Management and Art & Design. An active member of the MDE community, she is also head of the service committee for the Multidisciplinary Engineering Student Society (MDESS). 

Throughout Audrey’s time as a co-op, she was able to attend many site visits such as distribution work sites in Terre Haute and Camp Atterbury and the Edwardsport Power Plant. One of the visits she attended was to spend the day with Laura Johnson, a Duke Energy Government Affairs Specialist in Indianapolis. On this trip, she learned what it was like as a lobbyist trying to get legislation passed to help Duke Energy. As part of her visit, Audrey was able to take a tour of the Statehouse where she got to see the House Chamber where Interdisciplinary Engineering (IDES) alumnus, Brian Bosma, is the current Speaker of the House.
