Patrick McCallum got a leg up on his plastics engineering career with an internship at Wittmann Battenfeld, where he worked alongside the company's president, alum David Preusse '85.
The Plastics Engineering Department is an enthusiastic champion of and leader in Cooperative Education at UMass Lowell. We believe that participating in co-op is instrumental in helping undergraduates to define their interests and future career paths. It advances their technical and business skills, increases their professional competence and confidence, and gives them a competitive edge in landing their first engineering position or gaining admission to graduate school.
