Intern Spotlight - Fall 2016
Alexandra Torres is from Barcelona Spain. She is a 4th year student at MTSU. She chose MTSU based on her interests and career goals that aligned with one of our unique and specialized majors in Commercial Construction Management. After learning about the potential for relevant, on-the-job experience through QEP with Facilities Services, she applied for an internship including recommendation letters from her professors.
With this internship, she is gaining invaluable first-hand training and a behind-the-scenes look at both the mechanical and electrical engineering processes associated with commercial construction and ongoing maintenance that comprises a large portion of Facilities Services' daily responsibilities. She is spending approximately 3 hours a day with Earl Bogle, Capital Construction Admin.
After graduation she is looking forward to having more job opportunities at her fingertips in the field of construction management due to her extensive experience with Facilities Services, as well as the networking pool she has developed with contacts here within the department internally and externally with sub-contractors and construction firms in the area.
