As an Engineering student, the opportunity to intern at FEV has been a valuable experience. At FEV I was able to actually work side by side with experienced engineers on interesting and challenging projects. Everyone treated me just like another engineer on the team.
I was fortunate to work with some very brilliant and talented engineers at FEV. My desire and passion for engineering is stronger than ever after my experience at FEV.
