I’m Ed Steinke, a senior electrical engineer student at Ohio University. This is my fourth summer as an intern at Neundorfer and I continued where I left off on my previous work with a rapper project. My time here has been quite a learning experience as I have been able to get involved in real world product development. As I continue my education at school, I can’t help but realize how important actual work experience has been in helping me develop as a more experienced engineer. I look forward to continue working alongside others who continually help me appreciate the company.
My name is Alan Sotak, I am a senior at Miami of Ohio and I am currently studying mechanical engineering. While interning at Neundorfer, I experienced quite a lot. I learned how to use a 3-D modeling program (Solidworks), which was different from the one I use at school. I also furthered my knowledge of AutoCAD, which my school does not teach. Learning the computer program was not the only benefit of my internship. I saw how the real work world functions with problems and tasks, not the cherry picked problems that you work though in class. I also saw some of the terminology used in my classes being applied, as well as learning new things that I will be studying, which helps my enthusiasm for the class. Through the internship, what I have learned the most is to have a plan of attack for all projects, big or small, as well as to have strong communication with team members or peers for help and advice. I plan on continuing the experience with Neundorfer over the winter to further my knowledge and also to assist the team with any projects in any way I can.
I am Brittany and I will be a sophomore at The Ohio State University, continuing my studies in the engineering Honors program. I am documenting the SO3 manuals and updating all training materials used for training sessions and our seminars. There have been many projects in which I have had a role, including using an anemometer for measuring wind speed for the flow models.
I have gained a great deal of self confidence from the pride I receive when I complete a task and from the positive feedback. Furthermore, my ability to work independently and follow through with projects has been developed. The exposure to the business world has given me an overview of the journey from a purchase order to an invoice and everything in between. The Neundorfer passion for “particulate knowledge” is contagious and I too have become intrigued by the world of precipitators. I am very impressed by the professionalism and warmth of the Neundorfer team and was honored to be a part of it.
