Internships provides valuable experiences for undergraduate students
"I am currently working as a quality control intern at North American Hoganas High Alloys in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. In this internship, I am pressing powdered metals, sintering them on a new high temperature furnace, and gathering the data to report if the tests have proved to be successful or a failure."
