When the co-op of Jared Covell, E’22, mechanical engineering, was canceled by the pandemic, he ended up working as a design engineer at a dream company for mechanical engineering, Tesla, with the support, mentoring and network of connections of his co-op coordinator. As a project lead on Tesla’s Drive Systems Structures team, Covell modeled components for a dynamometer assembly used to test a new electric motor. He led design reviews among the company’s structures, lubrication, and motor teams — then applied their feedback to optimize his models in the next iteration.

In 1956, during one of Ken Bronstein’s first engineering classes at Northeastern, a professor made predictions about what might change by the year 2000. The Space Race was on, and personal jet packs and regular trips to the Moon were a couple of the possibilities that sparked Bronstein’s imagination. He dreamed of embarking on a lunar journey, and today, he’s disappointed that technology hasn’t made it a reality for himself or many others—but other travels awaited him.
