Summary of Internship

As an intern, my weekly jobs were creating instruction manuals, making blue prints and purchase orders. All of these things got me more familiar to the engineering field, the procedures of a company and their different programs. I also fixed mistakes in the electrical schematics or mechanical drawings as well as make my own drawings for certain machines. Every week I was usually given something new and different to work on that builds on each week with more freedom and responsibility. I enjoyed seeing the parallels in my school work and engineering classes to what I learned at my internship and the skills that I applied at my internship from school.
