I’m Jack, a senior from West Chester, PA. For my senior project, I will be interning with an engineer at Stuttgart SSB in Stuttgart, Germany. The SSB is the company that runs the subways, trams, and buses around Stuttgart. I have no idea what I’ll be doing exactly, but that’s part of the fun. I will be living with a German family, whose son I met through the German exchange program at Westtown.
I initially applied for an internship at Mercedes and Porsche, though unfortunately both had all of their available spots filled. Both companies would have given me a chance to see what working as an engineer would actually be like. Although working with car designers would have been really interesting, working in the subway is a great way to see the way a city works. I’ll be able to tell you more about it when I actually get there!
