“I had the opportunity to work as a co-op with Cummins for 1.5 years spread over three domestic and one international work rotation. For my first three rotations, I worked as a fuel pump development engineer at Cummins Fuel Systems facility in Columbus, IN. Going into my co-op as a sophomore, I was excited to apply all the concepts that I had acquired in school and further hone my technical and communication skills. The spectrum of projects that I worked on was very vast. From brainstorming together with fellow engineers, prototyping, designing, programming, writing test plans, procuring hardware, conducting performance tests & root cause analysis to cost reduction projects, it was a huge learning curve for me.
"I successfully completed my fourth work rotation as a product design engineer at Cummins Emission Solutions facility in Marktheidenfeld, Germany. Language barrier, different way of communication, work ethic and approach to engineering made it a challenging and exciting experience. I realized the importance of diversity in engineering solutions and how to embrace it.”
