Amy’s most recent co-op experience was with Signalysis, a computer software company located in Cincinnati, Ohio. “The software is used to analyze vibration waves. They do a lot of sound vibration monitoring through quality control systems,” she explains. “During my co-op work, I mostly did a lot of electrical drawings and some wiring of our systems and I also designed small products.”
One of these products was for Whirlpool. “It was for their big washers and dryers and refrigerators, and they needed something to monitor the amount of current that was being pulled by the device,” she said. “And so I built this little box that you could just plug into the refrigerator and plug it into a wall and then you could monitor the current going into the refrigerator.”
Amy is pleased with the opportunities that have resulted from her co-op work and she believes that her co-op experiences have had a positive influence on her ability to stay prepared. “It is so important to stay organized in your work,” she said.
