The Job:
Designing 3D printers is a cross-discipline experience where each individual contributes a portion of the overall knowledge required to bring a product to market. It seems like a daunting task from the outside; however, it can be broken down into smaller pieces that, when combined, result in a sophisticated device that embdies a lot of science, engineering, and manufacturing know-how. As an intern, you will contribute to this process in the following ways:
  • Design, assemble, test, and evaluate the performance of 3D printers.
  • Participate in design reviews and help solve design, engineering, and manufacturing problems.
  • Polish your time management and communication skills to increase your effectiveness as an engineer.
  • Build prototype components and assemblies using our in-house facilities.
  • Put your CAD skills to work designing parts and assemblies, creating engineering drawings and learning about the importance of documentation control.
  • Assist with direct communications to our vendors and suppliers to help overcome production challenges.
You:
  • Have a desire to hone your skills and learn more about engineering design and the process of bringing products to market.
  • Have worked with mechanical or electro-mechanical systems and want exposure to the inner workings of 3D printers.
  • Have one-or-more of the following hands-on experiences:
    • Lab research, member of a project team, prior internship or previous work experience
    • Have an up to date resume and portfolio of your previous experience to highlight what you have learned and how you have applied that learning.
