My time at Loram Maintenance of Way Inc., was far from boring. From the hands-on experience, to the abundant learning opportunities, to the appreciation Loram had for its interns; I can say that my time with this company has greatly shaped me to who I am today in my professional career.

As a Mechanical Engineering Intern at Loram, I was quickly given independent, meaningful tasks across multiple projects. I built professional relationships with senior engineers and utilized these relationships to gain invaluable experience. I felt like I made an impact on the projects I worked on and most importantly, I learned how to apply classroom experience to solving real world problems.
