“I am involved in three projects at AFS-Republic Fastening System, where we make different types of nuts. I’m identifying the right deformation length that each part needs in order to pass quality inspection. In another project, I’m comparing two different lubes that are applied to products to determine if it makes the torque higher or lower. And, I am helping to classify each product made in the facility and assigning specific criteria to them.
Doing my internship here has helped me learn about and discover situations that happen outside of a classroom. This is real life, where there is not one specific answer for everything. The level of involvement has been really good because I have the opportunity to interact with everybody who works here. The mentoring and training have been well beyond what I was expecting.
I think the best part of my internship at Alcoa is the fact that I am gaining so much knowledge. I enjoy being part of a wonderful company that I can see myself being part of in the future.”
