Millitech Inc.; Northampton, MA
To perform analysis and implementation of software for production products and web presence. Computer simulations in CAD were also a responsibility requiring me to learn a valuable tool relevant to the industry.
My responsiblities at this job changed over the course of my placement;
At first i was closely supervised with hardware and asked to do software tutorials for a possible upcoming project but was later allowed to design utilities and trusted to perform calculations
I would rate this overall experience as excellent and I would recommened this site to other students because it is a very well staffed engineering firm that despite appearances leads the industry in this field. Any chance to work here is a valuable oppurtunity to learn from talented people.
The only thing I would change about this placement was the amount of hands of work with relevant hardware though considering the cost of mistakes in this field I feel my experience was more than adequate in this regard.
To future students pursuing field placement I would advise gettting a ham radio license. It shows interest, aptitude, and respect for this complex field.
