  2. 2. My GEARE Adventures Julie Meyerson Mechanical Engineering 2015 Cohort Abstract Joining the GEARE Program was the best decision I have made at Purdue. Since middle school I knew I wanted to study abroad, and GEARE allowed me to take this to a whole new level. Not only did I get to study in Spain for a full semester, but I got to work a summer engineering internship in Germany and participate in a Global Design Team in Cameroon. I also used my previous Spanish credits and a culture class to obtain a Global Engineering Minor. GEARE allowed me to gain valuable work and technical experience with a global emphasis. These experiences pushed me past my comfort zone and forced me to think critically about the world around me and the life I want to lead. Spain Germany Cameroon Lasting ImpactsDomestic Internship Special Thanks to • Studied spring semester abroad in Madrid • Lived in the city center • Worked on technical projects with Spanish students • Weekly meetings with “culture buddies” • Traveled all around Europe • Worked in for Molex in Walldorf, Baden- Württemberg • Lived in Heidelberg • Intern Inside Sales Engineer • Answered customer questions and fielded potential leads • Explored Germany and nearby countries • Participated in PUP (Purdue Utility Platform) Global Design Team • Work to create hauling vehicles for farming and general transportation • Will travel to Africa for a month • Upcoming senior design project will design and build rural ambulance attachments for motorcycles • Designing improved maize grinder • Molex headquarters in Lisle, Illinois near Chicago • Sales and Marketing Intern • Researched potential markets • Networked to find international possibilities • Met amazing people from all over Europe and the world • Learned that I want to continue to live an international life • Improved Spanish and picked up some German • Molex, particularly Graham Brock, Doreen Cwik, Onintza OtamendiIza, and Henry Fuerniss • OPP Office, particularly Joe Tort, Eckhard Groll, and Tina Alsup • Study abroad coordinators and UC3M staff … 1 (408) 431-9674
