Manufacturing Engineering Intern

May - August 2018 • Newport News, VA

What I liked

I loved the rich experience I obtained there. I wasn't treated like a stereotypical intern, rather I was just like one of the other engineers working there.

What I wish was different

I wish that I wasn't given as much computer work that I had been given. I would have much more preferred a hands-on experience with installation and implementation.

Advice

I went into the experience assuming that I knew enough to perform my duties. However, this was not the case. As an intern, you are mostly there to learn, which is what I ended up doing the most while spending time on the job. I would urge people going into this position to go in with the mindset that they'll know 25%, at most, of what they'll need to know.
