CSU STAR Program: Paid Summer Research Internships - Jan 31!
This is an excellent summer research opportunity, hosted by Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, for CSU students interested in pursuing a career in K-12 science or math education. Participants earn $4,500 to do research at a national lab, private research facility, or university. Up to $2,250 in additional support for housing is available to those who qualify.
MorphoTrak is looking to fill several software development engineer positions! Please contact Gina Gali as soon as possible for more information.
Congratulations to our interns!
Major: Mechanical Engineering
Year in school: 4th
Interning for: Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division
Position at Internship: Engineering Intern
"I spent this summer working for NAWCWD in the Advanced Networks and Applications Branch at China Lake Navy Base. During my internship I was assigned a research project on the Link-16 Tactical Data Link. It involved analyzing Computer Simulated Mission Scenarios to determine network usage by different aircraft and if the network would be able to support all the traffic necessary for the Scenario. My piece of the project ended with the publication of a Technical Report documenting my findings and a project brief for those who will be continuing my work."
Major: Civil Engineering
Year in school: 3rd
Interning for: University of Rhode Island
Position at Internship: Student Researcher
"This summer, I was a paid student researcher for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security at the University of Rhode Island (URI). I worked there for 10 weeks with my previous Strengths of Materials professor, Dr. Yong Gan, from Cal Poly Pomona and a couple of graduate students from URI. Our research was based on the detection and mitigation of explosives in various infrastructures. We worked in the chemistry and engineering labs at URI and I performed lab experiments, took down data, wrote reports, and learned a whole lot of chemistry. At the end of the program, we were able to make a good sensor that could detect explosives such as TNT and DNT, but we still have a lot more tests to do before we can make any significant conclusions. If our proposal gets approved, then we will be able to continue the research at Cal Poly Pomona in 2014. Overall, I am so glad that I was able to participate in this amazing opportunity and I would recommend doing research to anyone that is interested in it. "
Major: Aerospace Engineering
Year in school: 3rd
Interning for: Sikorsky Global Helicopters in Coatesville, PA
Position at Internship: Industrial Engineering Intern
"Since I am an Aerospace Engineering student, it was completely different from what I would have normally been working on, but it was a good opportunity to learn how to work in the corporate world. Through Sikorsky, I was able to learn about the lifetime of a helicopter and dealt with the business side in creating them. I had to do a lot of data analysis and had to come up with different ways to further lean production and minimize costs. I was also given the opportunity to travel to Virginia and Connecticut to participate in intern leadership summits. Overall, this past summer was a great experience, and I feel a lot more confident in trying to transition into a full-time career."
Major: Applied Mathematics
Year in school: 4th
Interning for: Applied Medical in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA
Position at Internship: Summer Applied Mathematics Intern
"Applied Medical is a vertically integrated company that creates technology for minimally invasive and general surgeries, while improving the quality, affordability and accessibility of healthcare. As part of the Group Process Development Team, specifically for the Thermoset Plant, I updated engineering documents and drawings, standard operating procedures (SOPs), and document change requests for both polymer and rubber components. I also reconciled non-conforming products/materials on material review reports under my understanding and supervisor’s support. Moreover, I completed a design history file which re-qualified a mold for a polymer component and became instrumental in consolidating two part numbers for rubber components. It was an unforgettable learning experience for me and I look forward to starting the school year with a renewed sense of direction. "
