    “Learning through experience is so important. Although I have learned a lot through my courses at UVM/CDAE, I have been able to put these skills to work through my internships. They have allowed me to try out different fields, discover what I truly love and have taken close to 15 credits worth of internships.  I am so grateful for this experience to basically adopt a co-op into my major.  It has allowed me to have experiences to talk about on job applications and interviews” –Hannah Albert '19
