Stay At Home Internship Program
The ASSESS Initiative and EnginSoft USA respond to the COVID-19 situation by helping Engineering Graduates and Seniors
Together, we will Overcome
EnginSoft USA realizes that many college seniors and some recent graduates have experienced cancellation of their internships because of plant and office closings due to COVID-19. As we all come together in this crisis, EnginSoft USA has launched an Internship for select Mechanical Engineers. This program is still being formulated but we anticipate the following:
Interns will be asked to solve complex engineering problems using advanced engineering simulation software tools. Working in small teams, the interns will solve problems in Computational Fluid Dynamics, Finite Element Analysis, and Multibody Dynamics.
Mentorship by Industry Veterans
Each Internship team will be mentored by current industry veterans who use the underlying software tools for their jobs today. Knowledge transfer will be a key part of the mentorship but general discussions about how engineers work in different companies is also expected. Some mentors are already a part of the program and more mentors are actively being sought.
We are headquartered in McKinney, TX and our network spans across the continental United States. We serve customers in every corner of the country. The internship will be for USA university students and recent graduates. The internship itself will be virtual.
This is an un-paid internship program.
Access to a Windows based computer will probably be required to participate in the program. We are attempting to identify a cloud based solution that will eliminate this requirement
A competition will be a part of the program with prize money of $500 for the top prize, $250 for second place and $100 for third place. Prize money will be split among team members. Judging details will be provided to the participants.
Timeframe and Hours
The program is expected to begin on May 1, 2020 and last for up to 3 months. The number of hours each intern devotes to the program is at their discretion but active participation is expected.
Confidentiality and Sharing of Results
Because of confidentiality requirements of some of the tools used, Interns may be asked to sign confidentiality agreements in order to access those software tools. However, all models and data used in the program, other than those provided by the software companies, will be obtained from free use, public sites. Students will be allowed to show their projects to others and to future prospective employers. The final projects of each student may also be published on the EnginSoft USA website and social media outlets. Each team member's name will be associated with any published result.
