Aerojet Rocketdyne - Internship

From UTC Alumnus Tyler Mabry:

I currently work as a project/product engineer in Los Angeles, CA for Aerojet Rocketdyne (AR), formerly known as Rocketdyne. We develop, design, and manufacture rocket engines (among other wonderful product) to companies like NASA and U.S. Air Force. In fact, this company created the F-1 rocket engine which was used as the first stage of the Saturn V Rocket. The Saturn V rocket served as the main launch vehicle for the Apollo program which took the US to the moon. Additionally, the company is working on the Space Launch System (SLS) which will eventually take NASA to planets like Mars.

I am emailing to notify you all of intern opportunities at our Los Angeles location. We have a great summer intern program here at Aerojet Rocketdyne; therefore, I strongly recommend any of the electrical, mechanical, chemical/materials, or industrial engineers to apply for summer intern positions (project/product, design, materials) here in Los Angeles.

There are several other locations offering intern positions but the reason I recommend the Los Angeles location is due to the unique nature of the LA intern program. In fact, every year all of the space programs that centralize in LA (i.e., SpaceX, Boeing, Northrop Grumman) compete in an event titled, ‘Aerospace Summer Games’. Every July, hundreds of interns and young engineers meet at the beach to compete in various activities: volleyball, soccer, watermelon eating contest, etc. I’ve never met an intern that did not enjoy themselves at this event.

Apart from the fun the interns will have that summer, they walk away with a ton of real-world experience. Typically, the interns would be assigned several small projects and one large project that is to be presented to our program directors at the end of their summer. Additionally, the program usually provides a stipend for housing on top of an hourly rate because we select interns all over the country. I’ve seen many of our interns turn into full time employees after the program is completed and obtained their respective degrees. The link is below J. FYI must be U.S. Citizen.

FIRST Lego League - Volunteer Opportunity

The 2017/18 FIRST Lego League season is in full swing.  There will be two competitions in Chattanooga.  On December 2, we will hold the Chattanooga Regional Qualifier at Red Bank Middle School, and on January 13, the Super Regional will be help at Chattanooga State. 

This year's competition is Hydrodynamics.  More information can be found here: http://www.firstlegoleague.org/challenge

Faculty, staff and student volunteers are needed to support both events.  There are many non-technical volunteers needed, but we especially need referees and judges.  These positions are more technical and require some training.  Contact Richard Manning or Dr. Abdul Ofoli.

The 2018 FIRST Robotics Competition season is rapidly approaching.  This year's game will be announced on Saturday, January 6.  There are at least four Chattanooga area teams that can benefit greatly from mentors.  This is especially true in the areas of Mechanical Engineering (statics and dynamics), Computer Science (programming in C/C++, LabVIEW or Java), Electrical Engineering (sensors and systems).  Mentors need spend only a limited time with the students to make a great difference.  Again, please let faculty and graduate students know of this opportunity to make have a strong influence on our local high school students.  Contact Richard Manning or Dr. Abdul Ofoli.
