What I liked
I liked the ability to manage various different yet equally important and stimulating projects, while learning not only skills of an engineer, but learning how and why things work the way that they do in the medical device industry. There is a monumental amount of work that goes into the medical devices that make an impact on people that benefit from their use and this internship has shown me that the things that happen behind the curtain are surprising and exciting, all at once. I appreciated the confidence that my employer gave me in completing projects with no micromanaging or lack of trust in my abilities. At the same time, there was no pressure to be perfect 100% of the time, and a helping/guiding hand was always at the ready when I needed it, further propelling my confidence in carrying out projects. I felt like I was learning new skills and abilities everyday under the supervision of an expert in the industry.
