Introducing Misha Korolev, our Manufacturing Engineering Intern! Misha is going into his Junior year at the University of Michigan and is studying Industrial & Operations Engineering. When he graduates, his dream career is working for a company whose main efforts are sustainability-focused, such as Patagonia. Overall, the most important thing Misha is searching for when applying for a job is a good company culture.  

The biggest lesson he has learned from PGT Innovations is engineers do a lot more than just engineering. When asked what advice Misha would give to another intern he said, “Get involved in as much as you can handle, make the most of your time.” His favorite part about working at PGT Innovations is the people; everyone is so nice and friendly. It feels like home.  

Other Fun Facts About Misha:

  • Born & Raised: Eden Prairie, Minnesota 
  • Cats or Dogs: Cats
