Mechanical Engineering Design and Production Intern

May 2018 • Boise, ID

What I liked

There was a lot of hands on experience working with the various divisions of the company. My time was split between design and production. I spent my time during the design part assembling existing designs in AutoDesk Inventor and working on a new product that will be going into production here soon. As far as production went I learned a lot about automated machining with CNC Mills and also the production process that comes along with making a design change.

What I wish was different

Although there was a good amount of actual engineering work, I wish there would have been a little more work that related to the topics I covered in my various engineering classes.


This is the best internship I have ever had, and I would not have gotten this position without the experience I gained working internships that I enjoyed less. So my advice is to gain as much experience early on, because you will learn something that will pay off down the road.
