Summary of Internship

As an intern at Coffin Turbo Pump I was involved in a wide variety of responsibilities. My responsibilities included working on drawings for pumps, making drawings on AutoCAD, distributing, making data reports, creating user manuals, and other various tasks. Involvement in their manufacturing and testing facilities located next door also became a part of the internship. These tasks not only help in showing the mature attitude needed to succeed in the engineering environment, but also showed me what level of work is expected of engineers. This internship fused together the experiences of engineering, manufacturing, and testing to offer a unique look into the professional world.
