Student Profile

Completing two semesters as a co-op at Big Bend was the best thing I have ever done to develop my career and who I am as an individual. Tampa Electric empowered me to feel confident in myself and inspired me to pursue my dream to become an engineer in Power Generation.

Big Bend is the kind of place that turns students or newly-graduated engineers into real engineers. My experience there will always remain a big influence in my career and life.

Marnix, co-op student, Tampa Electric Company (Big Bend Power Station)
