Gray co-ops with Heatcraft

 Tennessee Tech University mechanical engineering major Zack Gray will spend four months working for Heatcraft Worldwide Refrigeration on a co-op, or cooperative education, assignment.

Gray, of Lebanon, will provide manufacturing engineering support for process improvement, work station design and quality projects.

“Co-op experience gives TTU students an edge as they get ready to start their careers,” said Don Foster, Career Services associate director. “The experiential education program can help students develop skills and better discover what they want to do when they enter the workforce after graduation.”

Students from all academic disciplines are eligible for the TTU co-op program, which is coordinated by the Office of Career Services. The office works regularly with hundreds of employers across the Southeast including business, industry, non-profit and government agencies to fit students’ career interests. 

Gray, son of Donald and Tammy, graduated from Wilson Central High School in 2011. He is a junior at TTU.
