The internship offered a variety of domains and industries – from design to inventory control, 3D printing to manufacturing, and SolidWorks software training to research and development. They even explored sales, supply chain purchasing, and product plating.
As a result of this transformative internship, our students emerged with newfound motivation, commitment, and enthusiasm for their academic pursuits. The experience left an indelible mark, and every single student wholeheartedly agreed that the internship motivated them to work hard at school, and each one recommended this opportunity to their friends.
"I was definitely inspired to work harder towards my dream career goals."
