Mods: I can't really find a good place for this, I figured that this fit best under "Announcements for the EpicSki Community" if not, please move it.

I know quite a few of the bears are either engineers or have contact with engineers, so maybe somebody can help me out. I'm a 4th year Mechanical Engineering Student at the Rochester Institute of Technology in NY. This is a five-year BS program, as were are required to complete a years worth of cooperative education assignments.

I have already done over 6 months worth, with a major corporation (GE), and am gearing up for another 3 or 6 months starting this summer. While RIT has lots of resources to help us find these positions, it seems like I am always riding lifts with people that are engineers for small companies that I have never even heard of.

I recognize that 90% of the companies out there don't have experience with a co-op program, but I can most likely answer a lot of questions myself, plus supply plenty of info from RIT. So I ask you to share with me where you work, and what kind of projects you work on. Ideally, somebody here will say "Hey, I work for XZY, we'd love to have a student come here and work with us." If that's not the case, networking and information gathering is always beneficial on its own.

Of course, I can supply more info about myself, including a Resume and references. I just didn't want to clutter up the board. Drop me a PM or post here.

Thanks guys and girls!
