Manufacturing Engineering Internships

Location of Program: China      Year: 2012
Program Director(s): Mike Miles
Participating Major(s): Manufacturing Engineering Technology and Mechanical Engineering


Students expand their opportunities by not only completing an internship, but by doing it with companies in China.

Recap of the Year:

Students worked at a company in China for approximately five weeks. They were assigned a significant project to complete within the five week time frame and were supervised by managers at the company. A professor also accompanied the students for the first week of the internship to help them get started with their project. At the end of the five-week stay the students presented their work to the general manager of the company and provided him with a final report. Work days were typically eight to ten hours Monday–Friday and weekends were free for leisure activities.
