MEI intern Ashley Everitt on Winning AEI Team

Mechanical Engineering student and MEI intern Ashley Everitt and her team from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln won top awards for their design efforts in the 2021 Architectural Engineering Institute International Student Design Competition (AEI-ISDC). There are currently 23 AEI Student Chapters (22 in the US and I located in the UAE). This is quite an honor for their team. MEI is proud to utilize Ashley’s talents on the many projects she continues to collaborate on with our staff as an intern.
