Leveraging Business and Industry in Pennsylvania

“The New Kensington campus shows a sense of unity, pride, and community. Staff and students work like a well-oiled machine to create an experience that helps students thrive. Students have the ability to get involved while still working on classes and getting help when needed. Without that kind of support system, some would not succeed during their time at college or enjoy their time as much.”
Lynsie Headley
Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology major | President of the Campus Activities Board | Engineer for Siemens

A student at Penn State New Kensington—one of four Penn State locations in western Pennsylvania—Lynsie Headley credits a supportive campus environment with allowing her to balance an internship at Siemens while still working on classes. She obtained her internship through the New Kensington’s Growing Regional Excellence through Experience, Academics and Training (GREAT) Program, which matches promising engineering and Information Sciences and Technology (IST) students with local opportunities.

With the ability to work at Siemens 10 hours a week, while attending classes, Headley was able to take what she learned in the classroom and apply it to a real-world setting at a global corporation.
