“The interactions with other employees, the daily work assignments, the products, and location. You're able to learn a lot about different processes and departments by talking with co-workers and reading documents on their server. ”

Environmental Engineering Intern

June 2018 - August 2018 San Diego, CA
“I liked interning at General Dynamics NASSCO because I got to see how vital the environmental team is in fitting into a large company atmosphere. I felt included and useful and enjoyed the employees and the company's mission statement. I got to participate in a variety of environmental sampling, compliance efforts, and process improvements and learned many engineering techniques. The intern experience was enhanced with an "Intern Luncheon" where the interns got to sit down with the Presidents and Vice Presidents to ask questions. And who doesn't love a summer in sunny San Diego? I highly recommend applying for an internship here. ”
