"I chose Oregon Tech because it has a strong 测绘学 department and supports participation in the MECOP/CECOP internship program. Also, the small class sizes make classes a lot more enjoyable."

阿尔弗德的机会 at Boeing's Everett Site

"All MECOP internships are paid six-month internships. This is interesting when working at Boeing because the majority of interns that work here are only here for a 10 or 12-week summer internship. The 6-months gives me enough time to get trained up first then to start doing some actual work with the team."
