Meetings with team to discuss progress or problems. Working on solutions with Verilog, MATLAB or C++ depending on which project I was working on at the time. Finding and fixing bugs. Learning sometimes when I needed to sharpen some skills.
I learned a lot about FPGAs and the tools Intel provides to deliver solutions. I worked a lot on MATLAB and Simulink and have gotten very confident with the software. I had a to work on a C++ based project where I sharpened my skills and learned more about OpenCV. I got a overview of neural networks and how they work.
The projects I undertook were often related to a line of work already going on at the company therefore my work was relevant and useful.
There is a lot of support, from sessions for new interns at the beginning, training to support work, a personal "work buddy" for help with most things and then a team of very talented engineers.
The company had a great focus on its workers and expanding their opportunties. As well as many extra activies for interns such as Intel Inspire which let interns educated children about STEM subjects. Therefore the atmosphere was very good.
I really enjoyed my placement due to the freedom I had with making solutions, the only down side was due to COVID we worked from home so the social aspect wasn't quite as good.
Keep the CV short and to the point, fill it with the skills you have that are mentioned in the job description. Then use the cover letter to tell more about yourself and maybe any extra projects you have done, maybe even a link to Git hub
