Final Thoughts


Written Thoughts:

I really enjoyed everyone on my team and how they all came from different engineering backgrounds. They each gave me a new perspective into what being an EPM is really about and how it changes you as an engineer. I am excited to take the skills I acquired from this experience and move forward with my studies with a whole new perspective into the technology industry.
