The featured student this week is Tanner Hardin, an electrical engineering major from Knoxville, Tennessee, who worked for SABIC Innovative Plastics in Mt. Vernon, Indiana.
During his rotation, Hardin’s main role was in HPP Finishing with assistant PAL, which assists the PAL in day-to-day problem solving to keep the plant running. This included reviewing and improving safe and ergonomic working environments, finding more efficient storage solutions in a small warehouse, as well as dust collector and conveyor motor reliability solutions.
Hardin said, “This term was challenging because of the volume of small projects I had. I was juggling no less than 10 projects at once, but that helped me to learn how to multitask effectively and efficiently.”
