Job Description

Have you ever walked into a building and thought about how all the air we breathe is circulated around, filtered, and replenished? Have you ever ordered a package online and tracked its progress from the vendor to your doorstep, or thought about how the product was packaged? Have you ever driven by a power plant and thought about all the sophisticated machinery built and used to convert the incredible volume of natural gas or wind into the electricity we use every day?
