4.2/5

"I designed and simulated a potential new hardware system for the company. In the first two weeks I learned how to use the software I would be using and started developing an understanding of the research area. After this, my days involved researching potential areas of investigation into the systems properties, creating and editing CAD models of the system, running electromagnetic field simulations of the model and then analyzing the results obtained. I shared my results most days with my manager, and we discussed potential new lines of research etc. At the end of the internship I wrote a report and gave a presentation of my findings to others in the company interested in exploring this hardware further."
