Mechanical engineering senior Morgan Struble isn't too worried about job prospects after she graduates – she's already employed.
Struble was among the first University of Arizona students to take part in a program launched by the UA STEM Learning Center that pairs students with companies offering internships. Through the program, she landed a three-month position at Arizona Public Service as a fossil generation intern, an ideal fit for someone also studying mining and geological engineering.
"My internship was extremely beneficial," Struble said. "With everyone's help, I was able to make great progress on my assigned projects, and I think that this really radiated with the company and helped me get a job."
After graduation in May, Struble will head to Buckeye, Arizona, and the Redhawk Power Station where she'll serve as a full-time engineer.
