MEM Internship Title
Intern; New Large Aircraft Impact Study
Why did you choose the Dartmouth MEM?
I chose the MEM because I loved being at Thayer for my AB and felt that there was much more I could learn from the professors and through the many projects I could pursue as a student. The MEM provided an opportunity to learn about how engineering gets done in the real world, work with a cohort of students who came from schools besides Dartmouth, and go a level deeper in my engineering coursework.
What was the most valuable part of your MEM internship experience?
My MEM Internship provided me with the opportunity to see how diverse engineering disciplines must interact with the business climate and regulation to accomplish big things and create value for customers and society.
How did the Dartmouth MEM prepare you for your career?
I was able to accelerate my career as an engineer because the MEM helped me to see the big picture. In the MEM I had a head start on learning how to put big projects together, work across engineering disciplines, and understand what success looked like for my management, team members, and customers.
What is your favorite Dartmouth MEM memory?
I look back very fondly on my cohort's Organizational Behavior course. The course was engaging and interactive. I didn't know it at the time, but I was learning foundational concepts, that I still rely on today, while enjoying working with my classmates.
