Major: Engineering - Computer I was able to do a very wide variety of different tasks throughout my co-op. I designed and built PCB's, wrote test software to validate the functionality of parts, provided electronics support for the entire test lab department, and developed verification procedures to verify the correct functionality of equipment. I also got to go to GHSP's Shanghai Lab to train technicians in the use of our test software and hardware and to diagnose problems with a test stand I designed that was sent over there.
Major: Engineering - Electrical I aided in the layout and design of lighting systems in new construction buildings as well as historical renovations. I also provided design assistance in the layout of power distribution systems within these buildings according to local, state and national electric codes. I provided assistance on a variety of different building projects for K-12 education, higher education (including projects for Grand Valley State University), historical building renovations, healthcare facilities, and large scale airport renovations.
Major: Sports Leadership During a regular day, our group of Gabe night interns come in about 4 hours before game time to set up the suites in the Van Andel Arena. After this, we head down to the box office where our primary responsibility is to sell game tickets, manage will call, and help with ticket resolution. After this, we are responsible for helping run and clean up intermission games on the ice, assisting the mascots with their needs, and performing T-shirt toss. Following the game we assist with clean-up, jersey auctions, giveaways, and selling tickets to future games.
