Internships can be a great resource for students as they begin to weigh their career choices and continue to develop technical and soft skills important in the workplace. However, every internship experience is different, and it is important to decide what you are looking for in an internship.
Aersys Inc. is a fast-paced technology startup and interning at a startup can be both challenging and rewarding. We are looking for students who are passionate about what they do and never back down from a challenge. As an intern at Aersys, you will be given real problems and the flexibility to make real decisions. Because we are a startup, you will have an opportunity to influence the direction of the company and work directly with higher level management. We believe this is the best way to give interns a valuable experience and help them develop practical skills in business, marketing, software, and engineering.

2019 SUMMER INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
This internship is open to students who are enrolled or plan to enroll full-time in an accredited four-year university. Interns are not financially compensated during this program; however, the program is structured to have a strong traditional and experiential learning component. Throughout the summer, interns will be involved in a series of projects, usually led by one of our full-time staff. For each project, interns will receive basic training for any new skills the project requires, and all work will be supervised by the project lead. Interns are expected to attend internal professional development workshops and complete basic online coursework related to their projects. For interns, the advantage of an Aersys internship is flexibility. Interns can prioritize the projects and develop the skill-sets that most interest them.
- BUSINESS | Interns on a business track will work with the company's management in topics including supply chain management, investor management, customer development, strategic growth planning, lean manufacturing, and six sigma. To apply, you must complete your first year with an industrial engineering, business, or related major when the internship period begins. A strong grasp of financial accounting is ideal.
- MARKETING | Interns on a marketing track will create graphics and animations, generate ad campaigns, connect with social media influencers, and develop long-term marketing and public relations strategies. Some experience with graphic design and marketing is important for this track.
- SOFTWARE | Interns on a software track will work directly with our lead developers to build applications that add functionality to the Aersys delivery platform. Projects will cover topics such as Mobile and Web Application Development, Computer Vision, Internet of Things (IoT), and Industrial Robotics Applications. Software interns will become well-versed in several cutting-edge technologies. Strong experience with programming is necessary for this track and we will ask to see past projects.
- ENGINEERING | Interns on an engineering track will get hands-on experience in leading CAD applications as well as in 3D printing, machining, and rapid prototyping. Engineering interns are tasked with solving difficult problems under tight constraints so some experience is necessary. Projects will involve basic mechanical, electrical and mechatronics engineering skills and interns must be prepared to work with embedded processors, micro-controllers, circuit design and other hardware.
