What our students say

"Pratt was a great learning experience for me and it wouldn’t have been possible without the support, commitment and motivation from my supervisor. I did my coop there with the Integrated Programs Management team [...] and was really fortunate to have Ahmet as my supervisor. He went great lengths to make sure that I achieved the goals I had set for my Co-op.  [...] Not only did he delegate this reporting to me, but also encouraged me to present it to the directors after a couple of weeks, emphasizing that it was a great opportunity for me to get noticed by the directors. Ahmet was more than just a supervisor – he was a great mentor, friend and even a better person."

"Julien at Olympus has thought me a lot about C++ and the has shown me many different software design strategies. He also let me do many design decisions in the project we are currently working on and has help me improve my coding skills dramatically. He has also helped me deepen my love for programming and has helped me want to learn more about different programming languages.​"
