  Your internship project gives you the chance to contribute with your engineering skills, while developing your leadership skills. You will have clear responsibilities that stretch your technical abilities. You will be expected to share updates and the results of your work, and will receive exposure to management. You will work in professional and entrepreneurial multi-functional teams, while receiving valuable mentoring as well as functional and corporate training.
