Project Engineering Internship Summary

I have learned a variety of new things along the way that has prepared me a little bit of what the real the world is and how a day to day in an office is like. Some of the things I have learned in my time at the internship are: Professionalism, ethics, dress codes, and intercommunication in the workplace. The internship has showed me a couple of design apps they use to work on project and the stress they go through in putting out the beautiful work we all and see and love out there. Also they thought me how to build a panel schedule for big electrical site which is one of the most important things when working on a electrical project. Something else I learned at my internship is plan grids which are the raw design before a project is started I am required to know the amount of electrical items required for the project so they are not overspending or underspending. Although the work I'm doing at my internship is really informative and beneficial to me I would still like to stay on my Mechanical Engineering path.
