What did you like best about your internship/co-op? What type of work were you doing?

Was hired as for a "geotechnical engineering coop" position but did work of a technician for the entire time. First few months gave good experience but after that work became extremely repetitive and boring do not recommend doing a coop term for over 4 months.

I only did density testing with a portable nuclear gauge and concrete testing.
