SPOTLIGHT: BIOE Senior Alice Peters - Control Systems Engineer at Bechtel National Inc.:

This is what Alice says about her experience:

"This past summer I had the wonderful opportunity to return to work for Bechtel, this time as a Control Systems Engineer Intern. Throughout the ten week duration of my internship, I reviewed and provided input for technical documentation for the conceptual design of a Sodium-Cooled Fast Breeder Reactor. Getting to experience the design side of engineering was incredible, especially compared to my experience in the field as a Piping Field Engineer Intern the summer before."

Follow above link for her post about the internship.
