When Javier Coindreau, a 23-year-old computer engineering major at Northeastern, started working full-time at Guardian Agriculture, he learned that three other employees on his six-member team had also graduated from the university. “Two had also done co-ops at the company,” Coindreau tells Northeastern Global News

Coindreau was just one of thousands of students picking up their degrees during Sunday’s commencement at Fenway Park after years of classroom instruction, co-op and experiential learning. Guardian Agriculture, which is based in Woburn, Massachusetts, produces a very specific kind of drone, called the SC1 autonomous electric vertical takeoff and landing drone, used by farmers to aerially apply insecticides on their crops. Coindreau was able to parlay his Northeastern co-op at Guardian Agriculture into full-time work, which he says he’ll begin following graduation. “As my part-time work started, it seemed like everything was going well,” Coindreau says. “They asked me if I wanted to become full-time after graduation.”
