Host a Panther Extern, Lockheed Martin, December 2015
This winter break, December 2015, I had the honor in having a one day externship in one of the well-known engineering companies in the US, Lockheed Martin. That tour opened my eyes into a lots of new things, such as how big the company is in addition to the number of projects and customers they deal with every day. On that day, we took a tour around one of their facilities that was located in Cape Canaveral, Florida. We witnessed one of the projects they were working on, which was refurbishing a rocket for the US Navy. On our tour, we met different engineers who worked in different areas working on a variety of tasks. They were able to show us around the rocket and explain to us what it did, how it worked, and what each and every part was. They also gave us a look on how the computer system inside the rocket worked. At the end, we had a quick tour around the facilities and around Kennedy Space Center, where we saw some of launch bays. If the opportunity let me do the externship again, I will definitely do it.
