What are the most valuable lessons you have learned at your internship?  Don't be afraid to ask questions! If you're having trouble with something, it can often be more productive to ask for help rather than waste too much time trying to figure it out on your own.

Why would you recommend this experience to other students?  My internship experience has given me confidence in my ability to learn new skills and information, in both professional and academic settings. There's also something special about the feeling of accomplishment you get when you experience success in a professional environment.

What advice would you give other UMD engineering students seeking an internship or co-op position?  Definitely try to be persistent! It can take a lot of applications, a lot of follow-ups, and a lot of phone calls in order to finally receive an offer.
