Summary of Internship
As an intern at engineering services department of Mercedes – Benz USA, I have greatly benefitted from working with my mentor, Dale Vanderbeck. The experience has really given me an insight into the career of an engineer. All the assignments that I was given helped me understand the type of work that an engineer has to perform. When I was updating vehicle case studies or analyzing fuel test samples, I was able to see how different vehicles can have a variety of problems. I began to see how complicated engineering problems were, and it was quite interesting to see how they were fixed. Probably, the greatest benefit I obtained from my experience was some of the unique skills from memorization to basic logic of computer programs that I was able to develop from the assignment that I worked. I became more effective and efficient at my work station. Overall, I felt that my internship showed me how engineering is a great career opportunity and I recommend this internship to anyone who is interested in the engineering field.
