Internship Field: Product Design

Major: Product Design

Host: Mehnert-Design GmbH & Co. KG

Location: Berlin

Duration: 3 months in Summer 2006


Description: "I designed a way to organize the cables in the office. I designed a canal for this in stainless steel sheet. My goal was to create a solution that would work for our office as well as other offices. The eventual goal was to make it for sale to other companies. I used 3D modeling software and physical prototypes in the process.

Comments: "I liked that the company was actually going to use the product I designed. The skills I learned in using 3D software will be very useful.

Personally rewarding: "Creating something that was not just an exercise or idea, but a product that would actually see production. This was the first time I experienced that, and it was very rewarding.  And I was able to start building my professional portfolio, which is critical in finding jobs."
