“I really enjoyed the atmosphere at ITW and how welcoming and helpful everyone was. All the people I worked with were eager to help me learn how to be a better mechanical engineer. I really enjoyed being able to work in the lab and get some hands-on experience rather than sitting at a desk all day. Overall, I really enjoyed working here and was glad to gain co-op experience from such a great company.”

“I like the different areas to work on for example building prototypes, software, testing, writing reports, and giving feedback on the test results. I feel like an important part of the team and not like a burden to be with. The company is very organized and professional but friendly at the same time. You have a lot of opportunities to learn about lab equipment and how to use it correctly. Staff in the company are more than happy to help you out and it's a relaxing environment.”
