“When I was at college I appreciated the collaboration and openness of the professors. As a student and research assistant, I had the chance to work hand in hand with the professors.” Lynch said. “The college provided the engineering skills I needed to be successful but I also learned about social interaction, team collaboration and how to develop a work/life structure while I was there.” His advice? “Pick a ‘mission’ that you truly believe in, and give it all you have.”
