Engineering students at Case Western Reserve University cover all the bases. Take, for example, junior Cole Jarrett, a civil and environmental engineering major and outfielder for the Spartans baseball team.
Last season Cole earned UAA All-Academic honors and was named to the All-University Athletic Association Team and a UAA Presidents Council Scholar-Athlete Team (Translation: He is a bona fide all-star on and off the field).
In addition to being a standout scholar-athlete, Cole interned with Whiting-Turner last summer, working in quality management in the construction of a middle school near his hometown in Maryland.
“I was able to see first-hand the responsibilities of a project manager, superintendent, and project and field engineers. I also had the opportunity to take over some of those responsibilities,” he said. “I was given an opportunity to contribute to a real team and project."
As a student at CWRU, like Cole, you will be more than an engineer. You’ll be a researcher (like 84% of CWRU engineers), an intern (81%), a study abroad participant (30%), a volunteer (56%), a co-op participant (36%), a student organization leader, an athlete (if you’re so inclined)… and so much more.
