Material Requirements Planning Controller Intern

Learning about a new field of engineering outside of Aerospace was great! I learned a lot about marine propulsion. Also working closely with the Planning and Controls team really put the idea of 'Production' into perspective for me.

Take chances when sending your Resume out because even if you think you aren't qualified or don't like a field, you might be surprised by what you find.
