Internship Field: Product Design
Major: Product Design
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."
