WHAT OUR PAST INTERNS SAY ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE

Connor Sullivan

Intern, Summer of 2023

A computer engineering Masters candidate, Connor worked alongside the rest of the software team on several important projects. His work included developing drivers, architecting and implementing a system manager, coding a message handler for communication, and configuration of a peripheral test tool. His work was invaluable to the Software team as well as the larger Engenious team.

Surrounding his experience, Conner stated: 

“An internship at Engenious gave me a real feeling of what it’s like to work on a team in industry. I was given the opportunity to do real work on real projects. This allowed me to both apply my knowledge and learn many valuable lessons from the engineers that I was working alongside. Questions I had were not only met with answers, but also discussions about larger design decisions where it was clear that my input was valued. I didn’t feel like an intern, I felt like part of the team.”

Jordan Gamble
Jordan Gamble

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.”

Megan Kinnane

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.”

Nick Fowler

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.”
