WHAT WE OFFER
With a combined skill set of over 30+ years in the industry, Engenious employees are a wealth on knowledge to show you the ropes
We create new products that improve lives by working quickly to get what's important done, and we take responsibility to make things better
Hands On Experience
You won't be merely watching the other employees working, you will be in the thick of it right beside them designing and building new products from the beginning
While we are very serious about what we do at Engenious Design, we are equally serious about getting together and experiencing life outside of the office
WHERE WE WORK
We don’t just dream up ideas, we love building them too. We are designers, engineers, and craftspeople. That’s why we continue to stock our lab and shop with an ever-increasing array of great tools and equipment. Sometimes we think we can build just about anything without stepping outside our offices! It’s like a builders’ playground in our workshops.
Our workspace is constantly changing as we work to make it a better and more creative space that inspires creative work, out-of-box thinking, and good old-fashioned hands-on productivity.
WHAT OUR PAST INTERNS SAY ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE
Intern, Summer of 2019
A mechanical engineering student, Nick worked collaboratively to design, build and test electromechanical devices, developed solutions around injection-molded plastic constraints, communicated design concepts through SolidWorks modeling, completed product development builds by leveraging in-house prototype capabilities, and SO much more.
Surrounding his experience, Nick stated:
“The whole office is a wealth of knowledge and I always felt like I could turn to anyone for help. Knowledge was shared. The Engenious team helped me understand why things were done the way they are. It never felt like people were only telling me what was necessary to help them out. Typically, when I asked 1 question, 5 got answered.”
Intern, Summer of 2020 and 2021
A biomedical engineering student, Megan brought her love of medical devices to Engenious and was able to test-drive her skills to establish medical device specification and requirements to an engineering level of detail while being mentored by experts in a myriad of engineering disciplines. Learning how to be a cross-functional leader focused on answering “how should we make this medical device?” Megan was a solid contributor to the team!
Surrounding her experience, Megan stated:
“My internship at Engenious has been one of the highlights of my engineering education. I’ve been able to learn from and work with engineering professionals who value my education and growth in the field. The diverse projects I have had the opportunity to work on not only gave me valuable hands-on experience but also a well-rounded idea of how I wanted to use my degree. My summers at Engenious provided practical context to my courses, benefitting me as a student and as a professional.”
Intern, Summer of 2022
A mechanical engineering PhD candidate, working with spinal fusion devices, Jordan focused on optimizing mechanical and electrical stimuli to enhance bone regeneration for clinical and tissue engineering purposes. She is currently acquiring in-field experience with her strong interest in research, design, and testing of medical devices, specifically in orthopedics.
Surrounding her experience, Jordan stated:
“The majority of my engineering background has been in education. My internship with Engenious has given me the chance to apply my skills in a professional setting, while still expanding my practical skills as a mechanical engineer. The hands-on tasks and project-based collaborations have also been invaluable to me. The culture and work environment at Engenious is collaborative and welcoming as well.”
