Technical Engineering Intern

May - August 2023 • Houston, TX

What I liked

I was impressed by the collaborative environment and innovative mindset at Synopsys. I had the chance to engage with a diverse team of professionals who were supportive and inspiring. Great work-life balance, great culture.

What I wish was different

For anyone considering an internship with Synopsys, my advice would be to take initiative. Don't be afraid to ask questions and immerse yourself in the company culture.
