You learn a different way of thinking that helps in the classroom.
What kind of skills did you learn at Optimax that you didn't learn in the classroom?
I get to work hands-on in the machine department by dealing with real deadlines and customers. The classroom is more individual focused while working here is more team based. I get to work on projects like the Mars Rover.

In the classroom, I learned measurement techniques such as geometry.
How has this internship helped you figure out any career goals or paths?
I am going into engineering, but I realized I want to be on the shop floor and not in a cubicle. Like a lot of engineers here, they are out on the floor, and that is something I want to do.
Why I like working at Optimax:
It’s a very relaxing environment, where you can be yourself and everyone is friendly and helpful.
