“My favorite part of the internship has been working on a [particular project] where I developed software for the client. It was a great experience for me to learn software development within a certain environment, with a specific timeline and project restrictions.”

“Working on multiple applied projects where I worked on all aspects of the project. For example, I got to help design the experiment, implement sensors, design the data collection system, help print/monitor the build, analyzed the data, and analyze the physical parts. I usually only get to work on one or two of these aspects but not all.”

Testimonials about Internship Mentors


“He was a great mentor to me during my previous internship, and I felt the same this summer as well. He lets me figure things out on my own, but if I need some more information or need to ask him how to handle a problem he is always there to help. He also lets me know when I am doing a good job, and if I am not, he lets me know how I can improve.”

“She was always willing to answer questions and seemed eager to help me learn the ropes of the company, so to speak. Coming into a new company is always going to be sort of uncertain at first, but she made it very easy to get acclimated. Whenever I needed input on something, I could ask her.”
