Intern experience at Tech Tran Corporation, Naperville, Illinois: an internship report
MetadataShow full item record
This report presents a survey of the author's internship experience with Tech Tran Corporation during the period September 1, 1981 through May 1, 1982. The eight month internship was spent as an associate engineer and associate editor assigned to the engineering branch. The intent of this report is to demonstrate that this experience fulfills the requirements of the Doctor of Engineering internship. The author's internship activities are presented to document the achievement of three major objectives: orientation to professional engineering consulting; development of management and interpersonal skills; and recognizable contributions to the internship firm. These objectives were attained through trips to various organizations, meetings, and conferences involved in manufacturing technology, assignments as an engineering consultant representing Tech Tran, and work preformed on three major Tech Tran contracts. The result of this internship experience was an appreciation for both the technical and non-technical aspects of operating an engineering consulting firm. The conclusion of the report is that the objectives were realized, and the internship requirements for the degree of Doctor of Engineering were satisfied.
