Mechanical engineering major Matthew Stuckey wrote about his experience working for elliTek in Knoxville as part of a co-op.
My name is Matthew Stuckey, and I had to opportunity to work with elliTek, Inc, a local system integrator here in Knoxville. As the mechanical engineering intern, I got to jump feet first into engineering new solutions daily. These projects included expanding my electrical engineering knowledge and seeing how those concepts directly relate back to my mechanical classes. I now understand how vital it is for a mechanical engineer to have the foresight to design for electrical and electromechanical integration down the line. ElliTek gave me a close-knit environment to grow as a designer, and I am immensely grateful to say I will be continuing part-time with them!
