What Former Students Say

Image of Chloe Mehring

  • "My standard answer for 'what advice would you give to an engineering student' is always—without a doubt, question or hesitation—"pursue a co-op or internship." Thanks to my co-op experience, I was offered and accepted a full-time job at NASA before my final year at Penn State even began." — Chloe Abraczinskas Mehring, '08 Eng (AERSP)

  • "My internships were so beneficial in helping me figure out what kind of career path I wanted to pursue! I also loved being able to help other engineering students explore those opportunities as an Envoy." — Meg Zuccato, '17 Eng (CHE)
