Experience Information

Employer: GE Aviation Muskegon

Description of the Organization

GE Aviation Muskegon is a General Electric company that specializes in the Aerospace industry. GE Aviation Muskegon is a plant that manufactures specific components for both military and commercial jet engines.

Description of the Tasks/Projects Completed

I have performed several tasks heavily involved with designing fixtures, gages and expendables. During this second co-op I have been working in the Project Engineering area where I have been given projects and expected to complete them beginning to end, where as when it came to designing something, it was just one piece to the whole project.

Skills/Knowledge Gained Through The Experience

Engineering, design, drafting, time management, project management, and communication skills.

Favorite Part of the Experience

The freedom of projects. I was given a list of projects and told to get them done. I have been designing for the company for a year now so when it came to the Project Engineering area I adapted quickly. The employees of this company are great teachers and people to be surrounded by.

How the Experience Influenced Future Career Goals

I am interested in possibly working for this company in the future but only time will tell. Who knows what opportunities may come from this company or another.
