Hey, students! Don't wait until your junior or senior year to start thinking about an internship in the fields of technology or engineering. 

Consider applying for the G.R.E.A.T. Program, where selected students have the opportunity to begin building professional skills and field experience as early as their first year at Penn State New Kensington.

"The GREAT Program is one that I suggest all engineering students become involved in. Everyone has an idea of what to do when meeting future employers, but the GREAT Program helped me finalize some of the my ideas and guided me with great pointers and connections. If it wasn't for GREAT, I would not have the amazing internship that I do today with a great opportunity for my future." -- Lynsie, PSU'18, Former G.R.E.A.T. Intern and current employee at Siemens
