Charles Burroughs

An Update from the CAD Intern.

    Hello, my name is Charles Burroughs. I am the new Engineering/CAD Intern. This previous year in high school, my junior year, I decided to sign up for the CAD class. I got the hang of Solidworks very quickly. At the end of the semester I took the certification test and I passed. I then signed up for the Advanced CAD class and towards the end of the year. Mr. Shall told me about an internship opportunity at Panther Industries, and so I investigated it and got an interview set up. The interview went very smoothly and the person who I was interviewing with was very friendly and easy to talk to. I made it to the second round of interviews with Joel Lessard and Shaw Bradford. They were also very friendly and were interested in learning more about me and what I wanted to do in the future. I was very grateful to receive the offer letter and I accepted. I was very excited to learn more about how CAD was used in the real world and very excited to start.

    Throughout my first 3 weeks, I have learned a lot. I have learned more about how the engineering aspect of a company goes into the manufacturing of the company. I have learned a lot about what engineers do in the real world. I have already started to design some of my own parts and solving problems from other parts. Not only has this internship taught me more about the real world of engineering, but it has also taught me about everything that is done for a normal job and business. It has already helped me in the future. I am very grateful to have this opportunity to work at Panther Industries and learn more about engineering in the real world. I can not wait for everything that I am still yet to learn from Joel Lessard and Shaw Bradford.
