Internships for Summer of 2015
Barrett Technology begins recruiting students for summer internships in February and finalizes the interview and selection process before the end of April. While our summer internship program is open to all, we place a high value on students from local partner schools, based on our ability to engage in campus Career Days, Product Showcases, field trips, etc. throughout the academic year. Barrett's ongoing partnerships with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Undergraduate Practice Opportunity Program (UPOP) and Olin College of Engineering provide proximity to our Newton location and facilitate the selection process.
Summer internships run for a minimum of 10 weeks between May and September, but candidates are free to utilize their entire summer break.
Please send a cover letter and resume, in either .pdf or .doc format, to firstname.lastname@example.org . Please specify Mechanical or Software in the subject line.
Mechanical Engineering Intern(s):
Seeking 2 Undergraduate Candidates
Mechanical Engineering interns at Barrett assist the rest of the team in maintaining and developing our robotic arms and hands. Over the summer, you will work in a team with another intern. You will be assigned one to two summer-long, complete design projects. In past years these projects have included prototypes of new designs, test equipment, and even full-fledged additions to the Barrett product line. You will also become familiar with our robots as you assist our manufacturing team with real-world manufacturing issues. Interns that thrive at Barrett enjoy the freedom to brainstorm and design in their own style, with limited guidance from the mechanical team. They finish the summer with a sense of ownership over their projects.
Software Engineering Intern(s):
Seeking 2 Undergraduate Candidates
Software Engineering interns at Barrett will be responsible for software development for our robotic arm and hand control software. As our software libraries are written in Python and C++, we would prefer experience or interest in these areas. ROS and user interface experience are also highly valued. Over the summer, you will work in a team with another intern. Typically, the team will be assigned one summer-long, software development project. In past years these projects have included quality control software for our robotic arm, performance software for Barrett motor controllers, and even a full-fledged, customer facing, robotic hand control software program. We expect you to work together with limited guidance from the Barrett software team.
