You’ve done what was expected of you. You performed well in the classroom and (you have almost) completed your Engineering curriculum requirements. You gained some additional project and/or research experience outside of the expectations surrounding your Senior Design project. You were an active member in your discipline’s student organization, and maybe even held a leadership position. Most importantly, you landed an outstanding internship and know that your resume is impressive (because you’ve visited the Career Center and had it reviewed).
