Jacqueline graduated from UC Davis with a degree in electrical engineering and technology management. While there, she interned with Northrop Grumman. As a student intern, she found herself engaged in real-time engineering work with people who had years of experience. Her time there eventually led to a full-time position—and her first job out of college.
Despite her engineering title, Jacqueline emphasizes that at Northrop Grumman, employees are defined beyond their jobs. Although she works on component hardware issues, Jacqueline’s also encouraged in her professional development. Recently, she helped plan the 2017 Global Innovation Summit and mentored 21 interns in Northrop Grumman’s makerspace.
“Working for a leading defense company, I get to work on advanced technologies to help protect the nation. It’s gratifying to know that my work helps ensure our security.”
“I see a shift in our culture. There are a lot of new hires at Northrop Grumman. When they collaborate with senior engineers, there’s a cool dynamic between how they all think. It introduces new ways to solve issues on all of our engineering projects. ”
