World-renowned HVACR company Emerson Climate Technologies is a valued corporate partner of the WSU Brandeberry Career Development Center and popular internship spot for WSU CECS students. Emerson is known for its global engineering, design, distribution, installation, and monitoring capabilities and provides reliable, energy efficient climate systems for a variety of applications.
Known for its emphasis on technology and innovation, Emerson has brought on several WSU students as interns, which has proved to be a beneficial experience on for everyone involved.
Emerson supervisor Shawn Vehr reports that recent WSU intern Abram Yorde in particular has done a nice job in applying his coursework to his work and has demonstrated quick learning and the ability to apply new concepts with minimal guidance. Vehr recognizes the challenges of being an intern, and states, “Although some of [Yorde’s] projects have been tedious at times, he still brings a positive attitude to work and continually turns in high quality work.” In fact, Vehr declares that they have been so pleased with the quality of the WSU mechanical engineering students that they have recently hired several WSU students on as full-time employees.
