This summer Flight Structures employed three interns to provide work experience for Mechanical Engineering students who are about to enter their final year of study.
This is the fifth year Flight Structures has taken on summer interns. We had a very high calibre of applicant this summer and ended up employing three, two from Canterbury University, and one from Auckland University.
Our intern programme is mutually beneficial. It provides experience in both practical and professional work for the students, and it keeps Flight Structures management in touch with the needs of current graduates. We are able to utilise their skills working alongside our senior experienced staff.
As most of our staff attended university in New Zealand it is also an opportunity for us to give back to the profession.
