What does a typical day in your current role look like?
As an Application Engineer, on a daily basis, I am involved in the design of system layouts for entire packaging lines (beverages, food, personal care etc.) , costing, review of customer specifications, co-ordination with internal engineering teams and external vendors to explore and identify optimal solutions, providing technical support to sales team on customer calls and site visits, site survey before execution of an order, and many more.
For those who were ITW interns, how did your internship help you prepare for your full-time role?
Internship at ITW Hartness served as a bridge between academia and industry; it filled the gap that academia could not provide such as working on extensive real world projects, what to expect when working in a professional team, interactions with vendors and customers, performing under pressure, etc. These experiences helped me to start my full-time role.
What is your favorite ITW memory?
As an intern, a site-visit to our customer facility with the other interns where I had the opportunity to see our machines function and hear feedback from the customer.
