As an international student, it is time-consuming securing an internship as an aspiring aerospace engineer. Through semesters of no, cant, and sorry, I had my breakthrough with Aether Vision, a company in its nascent stage specializing in commercial/civilian drones. Once I realized that some practical experience in the aerospace industry will boost my education by miles, I left no leaf un-turned to make myself present out there to acquire some hands on experience. Career Management Services gave me a solid starting point towards this journey. From job searching techniques, to resume building to hand-shaking, they prepared me in inexplicable ways for the world out there. And yes, it ended rather well.
As a propulsion analyst in Aether Vision, I get to work on commercial waterproof quadcopters and flying squirrel suits. To finally see all those classroom theories take real world form is nothing less than sheer excitement. There never is a dull moment at work there; we work on 3D printers, CAD designs, motors, and all sorts of R/C stuff. Plus, there's so much I've imbibed from my mentors and fellow interns- all those nifty engineering tricks, wind tunnel operations, business policies, etc. It's truly an enriching experience. And especially as someone who's still trying to figure out her niche in the industry, I find my internship opening me to the commercial side of the aerospace industry which has always been my goal to begin with.
I truly believe that if you try hard enough, you can't fail. I'm glad I sought out Aether Vision which is playing a pivotal role in shaping me as an engineer.
