February 20, 2014

Kevin Wollscheid '14, an industrial engineering major from McHenry, Ill., was named the Caterpillar College of Engineering and Technology Co-Op/Intern of the Year by Bradley's Smith Career Center.

Wollscheid interned with Los Angeles aerospace company SpaceX. He worked on computer analysis and production floor tasks related to the transport of Falcon 9 rockets into space.

Over the past three years, Bradley graduates averaged a 93 percent placement rate, which means those graduates found employment or continued education within six months of graduation.  The high placement rate is bolstered by job-seekers’ experiential learning as students, with 96 percent of students participating in experiential learning projects and 84 percent taking internships while in school.

The Outstanding Co-op/Intern of the Year is awarded by the Smith Career Center. One student from each College is chosen for the annual honor.
