A Parent's Perspective

Kurt Kluever at Google Our son realized many benefits from his co-op experience. He thoroughly enjoyed his job assignments, the opportunities to expand his skills and test his design ideas, and interacting with his co-workers and management. The company recommended that he apply for a full-time position that became available in his department, since he was familiar with the design project. Upon graduation from RIT with his BS/ME degrees in mechanical engineering, he began full time employment as a project manager.”
