Summary


It was an overall very fullfilling experience. I learned new programming languages and was challenged to improve my coding skills. I was provided with a good project that was challenging but still achievable. Got good guidance from my manager and teammates. My internship was hybrid so most of my work was done remotely and I only visited the plant a couple of times. I would've enjoyed more time in the offices, however the company did a really nice job of providing us with the guidance and support to work from home. Columbus is a very small town but has a lot of bigger cities nearby to visit and explore. I rented a room in one of the engineers' house and it was the best housing option I could've picked. He was super friendly and made my stay in Columbus much nicer. Overall it was an out of the ordinary internship because of the pandemic, however I still learned a lot and will be coming back for a second internship next summer.
