In Their Own Words

WenXuan_DCE 300by300

In my role as an engineering trainee, I provided support to my team leader in the field of engineering design. Looking back on my internship, I've gained valuable experience in engineering design and expertise with various software tools. This experience allowed me to develop a deep appreciation for the process of creating blueprint drawings and understanding how they serve as the foundation for constructing physical structures.
