K-STATE'S ADVANCED MANUFACTURING INSTITUTE OFFERS STUDENTS INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITIES
MANHATTAN -- Kansas State University students will gain some valuable hands-on experience as interns with K-State's Advanced Manufacturing Institute in the spring 2009 semester.
As interns, the students get the opportunity to apply what they have learned in the classroom, work in a creative environment and learn problem-solving skills, teamwork and professionalism. All interns are mentored by skilled professionals and are equipped to be productive employees upon graduation.
The paid internship program is open to K-State undergraduate and graduate students. One of the program's key benefits is its flexible work schedule. During the school year, interns plan their work schedule around their classes and can work up to 20 hours per week. Through the summer months, students can work up to 40 hours per week.
"It has been a wonderful experience working at the Advanced Manufacturing Institute," said Dana Sigle, senior in management, Osborne, who has served several internships at the institute. "The skills I have acquired from doing hands-on projects are things that I have not learned in my classes, and I enjoy the people I work with."
Students selected for spring internships include:
Katie Stucky, graduate student in business administration, Cimarron; Tyler Jelinek, senior in mechanical engineering, Danville; Robert Debes, senior in mechanical engineering, Dodge City; Trevor Fousek, junior in mechanical engineering, Leavenworth; Nick Clattenburg, junior in mechanical engineering, and Kyle Warren, senior in mechanical engineering, both of Lenexa; Connor Griffith, senior in electrical engineering, Lyndon; Roger Keyes, sophomore in mechanical engineering, Manhattan; Matthew Campbell, graduate student in mechanical engineering, Overland Park; and Jacob Benteman, sophomore in mechanical engineering, Waterville.
