Design Engineering Intern
Washington River Protection Solutions
During this internship I received the opportunity to work with a number of different groups within the company. The Design Engineering group was responsible for completing design tasks that the company did not want to subcontract. I participated in some project management by creating and updating schedules for projects that were assigned to the Design Engineering group. I also assembled some project metrics for a couple of the projects the group was working on. These metrics were used to evaluate the efficiency of the group and to help management delegate upcoming assignments. I also kept track of what every group member was working on over the period of a month, which helped management see who was available to work on upcoming projects.
Another project that I worked on was calculating ventilation rates for tanks that contained flammable gases. The basis for performing the calculations was to determine if the tanks could sustain a concentration of flammable gas below the flammability level concentration while ventilation systems were shutdown.
