“I’ve had an amazing experience here at WSU Tri-Cities. The combination of what I’ve learned through my classes, my internship at Bechtel, and even opportunities for student life activities on campus, has allowed me to stretch myself as an individual and learn lots about my path as an engineer and as a professional.”
