Interning at the Passaic Valley Sewerage Commission

I’ve spent two summers interning at the Passaic Valley Sewerage Commission (PVSC), one of the largest wastewater treatment plants in the United States. Key to my development was the time I spent working with computer aided design (CAD) draftsmen and geographic information systems (GIS) coordinators, who taught me how to use CAD and GIS to tackle real world problems.

Working in the POD 

In the first semester of my junior year, I became a teaching assistant in the POD, a renovated space created to house the new freshman design course at Duke. The course was launched in an effort to give freshman engineers an opportunity to gain hands-on experience and to learn about the engineering design process. I think I have learned more in my time being a TA than I have in any course at Duke.
