Engineering mindset is heavily developed. Lots of presenting to peers and managers. General engineering skills such as data management, investigation and technical knowledge.
Yes but sometimes reluctant to give interns too much responsibility. Depends on the specific project but usually pretty independent.
Depends heavily on your manager and their style. I didn’t get a lot unless I asked. Had to try hard to get all the information I needed for projects.
Bad atmosphere and culture on site. Very bad management and general morale extremely low. Hard to tell whether due to COVID and all the reductions but bad management certainly doesn’t help. No one on shop really has any time for the interns so can be very difficult. Seems like most people don’t enjoy their job which rubs off.
Some good bits and experiences which will be very useful. Have not enjoyed the year overall. Hard to say whether due to COVID or not, limiting social contact but the year has been very difficult at times.
Know about jet engines and how they work for the interview. Research MRO processes and the life cycle of an engine.
