Systems Integration Engineering Intern

May 2022 - August 2022 San Diego, CA
“This internship was an amazing experience. They really spoiled the interns, there were events where they brought a bunch of food trucks to their campus that gave us free food, a fair, etc. They also have sand volleyball courts, a basketball court, a soccer field, a gym, and a great cafeteria for employees.”

Process Development Engineer Intern

June 2020 - August 2020 San Diego, CA
“Overall, it was a great experience. The internship went remote due to Covid but they went above and beyond to make sure we still got a good experience and were able to meet other interns virtually. Everyone was very willing to talk to you and answer and questions you had about absolutely anything. My project was interesting and I was able to learn a lot from my team, manager, and technical mentors.”
