Corporate Partner Spotlight

Sensata Technologies

"Sensata Technologies has a top-notch summer internship program which is a great way to start student’s engineering careers. The program gives interns real life projects and challenges that the full time engineers are also working on but, allows the interns to take full ownership of the projects. The most rewarding aspect of Sensata’s internship program is that the intern has directly helped solve a real challenge which is of significant value for the company. This results in an extremely hands on and realistic experience of what it is like to work in the engineering industry which results in the intern having tremendous possibilities in the future. Because the projects are existing engineering challenges, the intern is able to get exposure to the various sides of the engineering industry that might not be apparent otherwise such as, dealing with manufacture sites, handling bill of materials, navigating testing and process specifications, and effectively communicating between various professional disciplines. My internship at Sensata was a pivotal point in extending both my knowledge and networking bases and ultimately lead to a full time position offer in my senior year of school. I cannot express how grateful I am that this program was available to take advantage of."
