Meet Our Intern
For her second consecutive summer, Sasha Towe, a 2017 Niskayuna High School graduate, is interning at MH Professional Engineering in Clifton Park.
Having just finished her freshman year at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Sasha is a mechanical engineering major and will most likely concentrate in either design or manufacturing.
“In high school, I enjoyed engineering classes and I like how you are always solving problems as an engineer,” she said.
Sasha credits MH Professional Engineering with giving her some real world experience and solidifying her decision to pursue engineering.
“I love the community that MH has and everyone's always so helpful when I have questions,” she said. “Yes, it has definitely showed me that I want to be an engineer.”
While Sasha doesn’t yet know exactly what she would like to do with her engineering degree once graduation rolls around, she is definitely drawing on Michelle Houghtaling, Principal of MH Professional Engineering, for some inspiration.
“I don't really know what type of firm I want to work for yet as I am still figuring out what I want to do, but eventually I would love to own my own business.”
