The featured student this week is Hana Gouto, a Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering major from Cordova, Tennessee, who worked for the Dennis Group in Atlanta, Georgia.
Gouto worked in the process department, where her responsibilities included P&ID markups, asset tagging equipment, start-up of various systems, catch samples for ingredient start-up, and replacement of solenoid valves. She also learned new skills like how to replace solenoid valves, use a pressure regulator, and create CIP highlighted drawings.
When describing the benefits of her co-op, Gouto said, “I was fortunate enough to be on a project and at a job-site for five months and see the plant start-up. Although I was not there when product was being made, I saw what issues we ran into and what we did to solve them and how to prevent them in the future. It was a great learning experience and I really enjoyed my time there!”
