When I was in school, I knew I wanted to engineering but didn’t really where I wanted to go. I began into schools in the mid-west such as Rose-Hulman, Ohio and Purdue. I chose Purdue on its excellent reputation, the Big Ten college atmosphere, in-state tuition, and it was fairly close to home. I heard that Purdue had a program through my father, who me to join the program. Initially, I was joining the program because I like the idea of missing other semester and moving graduation by a year, but after my first job fair at Purdue, I how important work experience was it came to getting a job. is when I figured out that the program was the way to go to obtain valuable experience.

When I started the Co-Op I worked for Toyota at one of their facilities in southern Indiana, Motor Manufacturing Indiana where they make the Tundra, and Sequoia. I completed rotations in the body weld where I was assigned many projects with varying of difficulty. For many of these I was required to design new tooling and was also responsible for every of the project including fabrication, inspection, and quality checks and For my fourth Co-Op term, I had the to work at the Toyota Technical (TTC) in Ann

Arbor, Michigan, which is North American research and headquarters. I worked in the Body and Strength and Durability group in the Performance Development department. I was in of running Finite Element (FEA) and performing Computer Engineering (CAE) on the outer of the vehicles in order to determine the of the panel and find weak in the panels. Overall, I would to say that I like working in the facility over the RD facility. I like the projects were challenging and educational when to my projects and assignments at

In conclusion, if you were explaining the of being a Co-Op student to school seniors what two or specifics would you list? For what have you gained and on the job that you feel gives you an A s a Co-Op student, I have some very valuable experience as well as some skills that you can’t learn or develop at school. The important of these skills have to be communication skills. In you aren’t forced to communicate multiple areas when on a project. At work, you are required to meetings and send numerous to keep many different and areas updated with the of different project. Also, you better time management and management abilities through set deadlines and being held for projects that aren’t in time. These skills you perform better when at I have been able to prioritize my activities and balance my better when at school as a of my Co-Op experience.
