Nadeem Ali, a student majoring in Purdue Polytechnic’s mechanical engineering technology program, talked with us a few months before graduating about the importance of going on an internship during college, which will help “diversify your experience outside of your book-smarts” and make students especially attractive to future employers. We learn about Nadeem’s internships at John Deere, Fiat Chrysler and Tesla and the advice he offers to high school students.
