Process Development Engineer Intern

June 2020 - August 2020 San Diego, CA
“Overall, it was a great experience. The internship went remote due to Covid but they went above and beyond to make sure we still got a good experience and were able to meet other interns virtually. Everyone was very willing to talk to you and answer and questions you had about absolutely anything. My project was interesting and I was able to learn a lot from my team, manager, and technical mentors.”

“My internship with Illumina was extremely impactful to my personal and professional growth. Though the experience was virtual, I was able to learn a lot about the company and the biotechnology industry, and had the chance to network with other interns and coworkers of all different backgrounds and experience-levels. The inclusive, fun, and collaborative company culture was very conducive to my own learning and kept the virtual experience very engaging throughout the whole summer. Overall, Illumina is a great company to work for who handled the transition to the online experience exceptionally well; I'd recommend their program to anyone!”
