Description

This June, 2015, I will be graduating with my BS in Mechanical Engineering Technology. My previous applicable work experience has been with the Washington State Department of Transportation as an inspector on the I-90 – Snoqualmie Pass project. I have gained valuable experience in interdisciplinary/intercultural communications and coordination skills, as well as management of time and assets. 

Coupled with the theoretical and hands-on experience I’ve had at Central Washington University, I am ready to start work in a mechanical contracting company in which I will be able to incorporate my project management, construction and mechanical engineering skills. I can see myself in 5 years either working under a professional engineer to get my PE or in a management position.
