As a University of Houston student studying mechanical engineering and mathematics, I would never have imagined that completing a summer internship at a law firm would lead me to discover my future career. However, after a transformative summer at Patterson + Sheridan, I am eager to share my experience as an engineering intern at a law firm.

I decided to study mechanical engineering since I believe it most broadly and accurately represents engineering at its core—developing innovative technologies intending to solve real-world problems. However, unlike most other engineering students I know, I found my social science courses, as well as extra-curricular reading and writing, to be necessary mental relief after studying heat transfer or differential equations!
