Each year, students from top engineering colleges and universities across the country – Stanford, Ohio State, and University of Michigan to name a few – join the DENSO Co-op program for the opportunity to take what they’ve learned in the classroom and put it to work.
Meet Shayne Miller, a junior at North Carolina State University studying mechanical engineering who completed a Co-op at our Maryville, Tenn. location this summer.
Junior, North Carolina State University
What has been your favorite part of the program?
My favorite part of the program was learning what an engineer does on a day-to-day basis and being able to work on projects that ultimately benefit the company and society.
What was something unexpected you learned about automotive/mobility/manufacturing?
Something I learned that was unexpected was how much of a process there is when you are creating a new design — you have to go through many steps before you reach your final product!
How did this program prepare you for what you want to do after graduation?
This program helped me a lot because it gave me an idea of what I enjoy doing and what I might not like doing quite as much. The DENSO Co-op program gave me a good idea of what I would like to do when I graduate.
