UPOP changed the way I thought about entering industry

Class of 2010 UPOP Alum

I fully credit UPOP with changing the way I thought about entering industry and working as both a leader and as a scientist, and not just as a smart brain from MIT.  One my strongest memories from my time at MIT was during UPOP, when the concept of engineering specifications was first introduced.  That was like a wake-up call for me: that working as a scientist in industry was different from learning as a scientist in academia.
