School of Engineering Cooperative Education Julie Kolodzief

Award of Excellence to the Outstanding Cooperative Education Student in Engineering

By Devon Florczak

Reflecting back on her co-op experience, Julie stated, “Working as a co-op with Marathon Petroleum has an endless list of advantages that have helped me grow professionally, technically, academically, and socially.  MPC rotates their engineering co-ops through as many different departments as possible.  I got to work with 4 different groups of engineers, had 4 different mentors and 4 different supervisors. Working with such a large variety of engineers allowed me to learn the different approaches and techniques that project leaders use to solve problems and work with others.”

Julie’s co-op experience opened the door to a full-time engineering position with Marathon. She is very excited to continue working for them.  Congratulations, Julie!
