Caroline Cochran:  My school recognized the WISE experience in their "Evolve" newsletter, my paper was featured in both SAE's Automotive Engineering International magazine and a smaller version was published by SES - Standards Engineering Society. The experience was inspirational to me as a person, and I can't imagine having the opportunity to work around a more fun and bright set of people again in my life.  This summer, I am working at the Pentagon in Programs Analysis and Evaluation on Weapons Systems Analysis-- a job I'm sure I got in large part due to my experience from WISE.  Last week at the ASEE world conference (where I saw Sharon!), the subject of the main plenary was having engineers who are leaders, engineers with a sense of the global community, engineers involved in public policy, etc... Exactly what this program produces. If the NAE wants to talk about the Engineer of 2020 with these characteristics, it should recognize that each of the characteristics they outlined as necessary and important for the future engineer are especially and completely developed by the WISE program.  Thank you again for the opportunity to be a WISE intern.  (07/05)

Clay Condon: I am still with ExxonMobil Gas Marketing Company although a little further from home than Houston. Last fall I moved to Doha, Qatar in the Middle East. I work in our LNG Marketing group, mainly supporting an LNG project to the UK. If anyone ever happens to be in the Middle East, look me up, I should be here for another year or so.  (03/07)

Nicholas Reinholtz: Nothing much new with me. I'm planning on graduating in August 06 and moving west. No formal plans yet. I intend on going back to school in a couple of years. Shoot me a line if you know of any good jobs in Portland! I hope everyone else is doing awesome... [Blog] (1/06)

Updated Sam Schoofs' WISE experience was highlighted in a press release by Calvin College. (07/04).  I've finished up my Master's degree in electrical engineering that I was doing through Georgia Tech in France. I interned for Airbus in Toulouse, France, prior to returning to the States to start a job with Boston Scientific in their pacemaker/defibrillator division in Minneapolis. I'm a supplier quality engineer, which means I work with the suppliers we buy electrical components from. One of my job duties is going to those companies to perform quality audits and I am also the liaison between the manufacturing line whenever the components I'm responsible for have issues. Our company is heavily regulated by the FDA, so it's interesting to remember going to visit the FDA in Maryland during WISE. (7/08)

Jacob Scott:  I'm now a first year graduate student at MIT, in computer science. Lots of cool stuff (and a little bit of bad stuff) happened recently - still ongoing, so hard do update.  Stilll leveraging what I learned from WISE (including but not limited to moderating how much I drink ;) [Webpage] (3/06
