My summer internship gave me an opportunity to directly apply topics I was learning about in class, and I learned more than I could ever have imagined about electric power at the utility scale. The BWL is uniquely positioned to provide many of the same diverse experiences I would have had at a large company, but with the attention and atmosphere of a small company. The work I did was meaningful and helped me a lot later in school. I thoroughly enjoyed what I did and all the people I worked with.
