Darby E. (Fall 2022 Intern I, Summer 2023 Intern II)

“My time interning at Charles River allowed me to experience my field outside of an academic setting. Academically, engineers are taught how to find solutions with given parameters. During my internship, the department projects taught me how to theorize and solve complex projects with unknown parameters. My time at CRL taught me that internships are more than just learning technical and industry proficiency. It’s allowing you to get your foot in the door, begin networking with colleagues, and establishing professional development.”
