Feedback from former Rotational Engineers

I highly recommend applying for the SRP Rotational Engineering Program. Not only because it sets a great foundation for your career and a great kickstart to the career of an engineer, but it also ensures a very rewarding future as an engineer. Vy K., University of Arizona Alumnus - Mechanical Engineering

I loved working at the power plants. That's a mechanical engineer's playground. You get to see and touch things that you learned about in school and real life. Mary F., University of Arizona Alumnus - Mechanical Engineering.

The Rotational Engineering Program is absolutely a phenomenal program. The engineers love it; they're a very tight-knit group, and they have some of the best jobs in our company. Robert E., Cal State University - Chico Alumnus - Industrial Engineering
