My name is Lucy and I am from Georgetown, Ontario! I’m in 2B Management Engineering which means I will graduate in 2022.
Waterloo Engineering in one word:
I choose Waterloo Engineering because:
I chose UW Engineering because my program is not offered anywhere else and I wanted the amazing co-op program! I am not entirely sure what I want to do after school so I love that co-op lets me explore what I want to do.
The best thing about my program is:
The people. I love knowing all my classmates and having friends in my classes!
About my Co-op experience:
I worked at Nissan as a Data Analyst and Accedo.tv as an Associate Solutions Engineer. I have really enjoyed both co-ops, they were both very different and I loved the people I worked with. I am excited to get more co-ops in different industries and roles soon!
I wish I had known before I came:
It is less overwhelming and scary that I expected but really good time management skills will really benefit you. I am still working on mine ☺
Outside the classroom, I’m involved with:
I am Outreach Lead for Engineering Ambassadors and a really subpar ultimate frisbee player on an intramural team.
One more thing about me:
I am a gym rat and avid runner. I ran a marathon during first year!
