Meanwhile, at Cogmedix, a Worcester medical device company part of the Coghlin Cos. group, Laura Sacco of Southborough is doing her second summer internship, working in quality and compliance.
“I like seeing a product go from pieces of material to a finished medical device, with the potential to save someone’s life, in a matter of hours,” she said.
Sacco said spending time with the company’s employees has helped her work through ideas about her future career. She’s planning to get an MBA and hopes she’ll be able to land a job that uses both engineering and business skills.
“I have been exposed to many different areas and have learned a lot about my co-workers roles and career experiences,” she said. “Manufacturing offers you the ability to do a whole bunch of disciplines; there is a lot more to it than one might think.”
