|Full Internship Description:||
CCAM is seeking multiple undergraduate and graduate student interns to perform and participate in the research programs of their world-class applied research facility. Primary responsibilities may include: • Supporting scientists, engineers, and technicians with ongoing research in CCAM’s six technology focus areas • Developing systems to manage equipment, facilities, knowledge, specimens, and other resources • Supporting the pursuit of additional research and development opportunities • Supporting CCAM infrastructure projects The Commonwealth Center for Advanced Manufacturing is looking for interns who are intrigued by its mission and who desire to make contributions to programs and teams focused on high-technology manufacturing activities and high-value manufacturing systems. This will require the interns to have: • A genuine enthusiasm for the development and application of scientific principles, engineering methods, and technology to manufacturing in industry • The ability to quickly grasp key concepts needed to attack difficult engineering and manufacturing problems • A positive, team-first attitude • The ability to work independently towards an established goal without continuous oversight or assistance At a minimum, the candidate must have partially completed a scientific or engineering degree (at least two years of academic credit) at an accredited university. Preference is given to applicants from CCAM’s member universities. Interns focus in one or more of the following research disciplines: • Programming o Degree program or area of focus: computer science, programming, or engineering; computer or machine vision; machine learning; modeling & simulation; or similar programs o Useful skills and experience include programming with the following: C++, OpenCV, CMake, SIFT, SURF, ORB, BRIEF, segmentation, stereo vision, PTAM, pose estimation, 3D Mapping, Qt, android, VTK, OpenGL, CUDA • Manufacturing o Degree program or area of focus: manufacturing engineering; industrial engineering; mechanical engineering; systems engineering; or similar programs o Useful skills and experience include CAD; CAM; familiarity with manufacturing processes and equipment; robotics/automation • Instrumentation & Controls o Degree program or area of focus: instrumentation; controls; electrical engineering; mechanical engineering; mechatronics; or similar programs o Useful skills and experience include programming in LabVIEW, C++, Arduino; data acquisition; analog sensor wiring and installation; digital logic design; industrial circuitry to include electrical safety design and build; automated system programming and implementation • Materials o Degree program or area of focus: materials science/engineering; metallurgical or welding engineering; chemistry; or similar programs o Useful skills and experience include familiarity with materials processes in manufacturing (coating preparation and application, welding/joining, casting, etc.); characterization methods, including specimen preparation and SEM/EDS experience Interns may work 20-40 hours per week depending on school schedule and availability.
