About Jacob

About Jacob
My name is Jacob Herget and I am a Senior in Mechanical Engineering at Virginia Tech and minoring in Green Engineering. I have a heavy technical background as I have taken a rigorous course load in many math and science courses. I am planning on moving into the automotive industry once I graduate as I have held two co-op positions at Toyota and currently am interning at Ford Motor Company this summer.

Teaching Experience

Teaching Experience
I have been an off and on again tutor since my course load for the past few years has been pretty heavy. However when it comes to the crunch time for studying for tests, I find myself teaching my friends how to do more stuff than actually studying on my own so I am used to teaching others.

Bachelor's Degree
2012 - 2017

I completed two rotations at Toyota's Technical Center in Saline, MI. I worked in Body Design Seats and Body Design 3, which mainly worked on the exterior of the car, supporting day to day activities of the engineers and handling a few projects and studies on my own which I later presented up the chain of command.
