The Signal.X / University of Cincinnati Co-op Program: The Co-op Perspective, Part 5

I joined the Signal.X co-op program spring 2015 as a first time co-op with very little real world experience. When I first arrived it was easy to get started as I immediately began learning LabVIEW which is National Instruments’ graphical programming environment. During the course of my first co-op I was challenged with several LabVIEW applications and by the end I was able to become a Certified LabVIEW Associate Developer. I have since spent two more co-op terms with Signal.X and that has opened up considerable new adventures. I now primarily do Research and Development, working with cutting edge hardware and custom designed software focused on incorporating the company’s substantial NVH (Noise, Vibration, and Harshness) skills and implementing that power of signal analysis to plant floors.

For co-ops, Signal.X provides the opportunity to try many different areas of engineering while working on different projects. When here you will have to learn quickly and build the confidence needed to ask for more challenging problems. The staff at Signal.X all work together to provide the best products possible to our customers.
