Yes.

Yes.

Summary


As a Pathways co-op, I have gotten to do "rotations" into different organizations within NASA. This has allowed me to get experience in virtually any field within Engineering and helped me decide what I would like to do long-term. For the Spring of 2020, I worked in structural analysis and design, and could not be more grateful for the experience. After previous internships and a rotation in a different organization, I discovered that analysis/design work is what I would like to pursue. NASA has been amazing at teaching me everything I need to be successful and was incredibly flexible during the pandemic. NASA does everything it can to ensure the safety of its employees while also maintaining a high morale, and I cannot recommend it enough.
