February 2017 ASME Article: Career Stepping Stones Beyond the Classroom
“It was an amazing opportunity to go back to the mixer that allowed me to acquire the internship that ultimately led to my first full time position after college. I enjoyed sharing with the students my internship experiences and what I would do differently if I had a chance, as well as what you should really try to get out of an internship. Getting the chance to help students and make sure they are on the right path to having the best careers possible is something I take pride in.”…..Ryan Voss, Engineer, MCCST
“Cott Beverage impressed with student attendee’s at Engineering Internship Mixer is planning to move ahead with interviews.”…..James Shedden, Kelly
“The internship mixers provide a great forum where a variety of companies offer prospective interns tips on how to best market their abilities. These gatherings provide students insights on the types of qualifications needed to separate themselves from other job seekers. At the same time, employers have a setting in which we can review soon-to-be graduates while considering their suitability for an internship or full-time position. For students still unsure of a specific career path, these gatherings can also provide an overview of the range of engineering opportunities available that could align with their career choice and aspirations.”…..Keith Stevens, Project Engineer, MCCST
We love the finishing touches in our conference room and entry!!!
In 1998, the USF Engineering Alumni Society (EAS) founded the Corporate Ambassador Program (CAP) to foster a closer relationship between College of Engineering students and the thousands of alumni. The Ambassadors serve as liaisons between the engineering community at large and the College; among them is Zachary White, Engineer at MCCST.
Corporate Ambassadors benefit from:
- Increased visibility within their organization as a champion of their company and the engineering community
- Strong network with USF resources and potential partnerships with peer companies
- Opportunities to simultaneously give back to USF students and discover the best suited talent for your company
Ambassadors facilitate success with the College, such as:
- Completing company research projects supported by students and faculty
- Assisting EAS in distributing over $30,000 annually in scholarships and conference travel grants
- Increasing the presence of corporations on campus through building upgrades and participating in Engineering EXPO and professional societies
Through its rich academic and research programs, the USF College of Engineering offers the corporate community a valuable resource for workforce development where everyone – alumni, students and local companies – benefits. Find out how your organization can play a key role in the newly released College of Engineering 2025 Strategic Plan.
You can participate from wherever your organization is located. Call Carissa (813-684-3979) or any EAS officer for more information.
All of us at McCormick Stevenson were honored to work with another great USF Engineering Student Intern this summer. Jessica Martinez’ professionalism and eagerness to learn was a great addition to our team, and her contribution was very much appreciated. Jessica quickly and effectively engaged with our staff to complete projects that offered her practical experience to complement her University coursework. Well done, Jessica!
Here at MCCST our goal is to provide students with a meaningful opportunity to contribute to our firm, while enhancing their workplace skills through engineering practice. If you seek such an opportunity, and are a US Citizen or Permanent Resident, we’re always eager to connect!
Thanks to US Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25) for sharing his views on upcoming defense appropriations with the members of the Florida Defense Contractors Association earlier this week. Mr. Diaz-Balart offered his valuable perspective regarding the threats facing our nation, and the most effective legislative means to ensure America’s warfighters successfully meet those threats head-on. Soon to be Florida’s most senior member of the House Appropriations Defense Subcommittee, Mr. Diaz-Balart will play a critically important role in ensuring our nation’s military readiness for years to come.
All of this over a wonderful lunch at the brand-new Bulla Gastrobar location in Doral! In fact, I learned that those of us in the Tampa Bay area will soon have a Bulla location of our own! Count me in!

McCormick Stevenson is very proud of the University of South Florida SAE Race Team and their 2016 Formula 1 entry. They entered the Formula SAE Michigan competition on May 11-14 in Brooklyn, MI and competed in all available events, including the Endurance Event. We extend a special thanks to all of our local manufacturers, including Baymar Solutions and Crabil Manufacturing, who provided the team with material, sponsorship, and machining support
