Microelectronic Co-op Experience
What did you do on co-op?
“I did assembly testing and engineering support for the development of next-generation electro-optic modulator products. The modulator acts as a high-frequency optical switch for lasers. The main project I worked on encompasses material sciences, mechanical design, optoelectronics, and lots of hands-on work.”
How did RIT prepare you?
“There were a couple of engineering classes that I depended on while I was at this co-op. Statistics and design of experiments helped me a lot, as well as the integrated circuits technology course and the math classes I’ve taken. RIT’s professional code of conduct helped me as well.”
What are your future plans?
“My plan after graduation is to go to graduate school for my master’s degree or go straight into the workforce. I’m open to both, but I would prefer to further my education first.”
