|High School:||South Central High School, KS May 2009
Purdue has one of the best engineering programs in the US. Once I had decided to go for engineering, Purdue was my top choice. The Co-Op program provided me an opportunity to gain work experience and had an exposure to the life outside the campus.
My Co-Op employer Ingersoll Rand- Trane had a very friendly working environment and I had the chance to work in a cross-functional team with people from different backgrounds. One of the challenges I had encountered was understanding of the professional terms of the manufacturing process.
What I've gained academically and on the job that I feel gives me an advantage:
- Gain more work experience with a longer working term
- Have a better understanding of the knowledge you learn in class after doing the Co-Op
