Fun, Interesting, Hands On

“My co-op experience was really fantastic and I’m so glad that I had the opportunity to do it. I learned loads more than I would have sitting in a classroom and got tons of hands-on engineering experience. Most importantly, it was really, really fun and interesting. Being able to tell people that I worked on NASA research as a freshman is pretty cool.”
