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.

Computer Aided Design (CAD)

"My name is Charles. I’m actually very interested in cars, so I would like to go for an automotive design or mechanical engineering degree. I took a CAD (Computer Aided Design) class recently at school, and Mr. Shall, a teacher there, told me I could get an internship at Panther. So I decided to look into it and I got the internship, and now I am using CAD to basically do everything that I would have done in the automotive world, except it’s in a different setting and I’m getting exposure to the CAD world as well and everything they do with it."

Ethan

Augmented Reality

"My name is Ethan and I’ve been the augmented reality intern here at Panther for about 5 weeks now. I’ve been utilizing augmented reality for around three years, and now I’m developing an augmented reality support app for Panther."

Henry

Service Department

"I’m Henry and I’m one of the service interns at Panther. I’m really interested in mechatronics which is the industrial application of robots, and automation as well. It’s really cool being able to learn how these machines work, about the pneumatics and mechanics of it, learning how applicators are made, how to apply labels, about vacuum sensors and vacuum boxes and stuff."

Josh

Service Department

"My name is Josh. I’m completely new to this. I really haven’t had any experience with hands-on work before, and I joined Panther to sort of get that new experience in my life, and also to understand machines better and become more of a handy person when I go off to college. I’ve always been fascinated with machinery, and the way things run in a business and production line, so Panther has really given me an outlet to experience that first hand."

Michal

Marketing/AR

"I’m Michal. I’m a very avid programmer and naturally I really like working with computers and building them as well. I decided to join up with Panther as I really wanted to get more working experience inside a business. It might be a bit surprising that I ended up doing Marketing, but the role actually requires a lot of experience with website design, social media, and graphic design, all of which being something I’m familiar with and enjoy doing. I’ve only been with Panther for a few days, but I hope the internship continues to give me new challenges to tackle every day."

Rois

Service Department

"My name is Rois, I play baseball and go to Dakota Ridge High School. I decided to get interviewed for the internship at Panther because I was interested in all the machinery and how it works. I’ve always wondered how they put the printers together and stuff like that. The internship is going pretty good actually and I’m learning a lot, and I’m having a lot of fun too. I’m basically assembling print-and-apply machines. I’m not putting together all of them, for example I’m not doing the wiring but instead I’m putting together the main plates and the mechanical parts of it."

Shaun

 

Research and Development

"I'm Shaun. I have always enjoyed automating and making different devices talk to each other, and so I really enjoy the Panther internship. I get to go up to the research and development room and make different machines cooperate, figuring out how exactly to make them communicate so they can automate tasks, which would otherwise take a much longer time for us to complete."

Truman

Service Department

"I’m Truman. I’ve always liked making things and knowing how it works, so getting to work at Panther where I get to build machines, and even learn how to program them is really cool. Just getting to see the other side of the machinery I’ve always been intrigued with is definitely a great experience."
