Dagher Engineering intern Sandra Ruttkayova was awarded a scholarship at an ASHRAE Long Island Chapter event on Wednesday night. Sandra is a third year Mechanical Engineering student pursuing her Bachelor of Engineering at Stony Brook University in Long Island where she is also secretary of the ASHRAE student chapter and a volunteer Firefighter. She is interning at DE this summer as she gets her feet wet with a team of Plumbing and Fire Protection engineers.
“The scholarship will go a long way in covering my travel expenses to the city for this internship,” says Sandra. “Even though I have only been here at DE for about 2 weeks I have already learned a great deal. Looking ahead, I’m excited to see just how far I can advance my skill set by the end of the summer. Everyone here is really patient in helping me learn.”
Dagher is proud to support ambitious engineers of the future, like Sandra, by providing opportunities to acquire education and experience. Scholarships from organizations such as ASHRAE are crucial in turning these opportunities into realities.
