My experience


There were multiple projects where I was the project manager. The most impactful project was building a DCS module that would alert operations when pumps were reaching their optimal runtime before switching to their sister pump. This let me get to know the plant really well and work with operations. Many other tasks were necessary, but felt like busy work due to their repetitive nature. Overall, the work is engaging but more long term focused.


Strong co-op community that supports one another, good pay, many different opportunities.


Locations are not great and there can be a lot of downtime when working with others on projects.
