The Lucerne International internship program aims to inspire young minds who are interested in and passionate about the manufacturing industry. This summer, Lucerne had the pleasure of hosting two outstanding interns from University of Michigan and Michigan State University.
Throughout the summer, our interns were responsible for measuring and reviewing parts, sorting through data and rewriting instructions for fixtures, training the operators on how to use the fixtures and more.
The hard-working Engineering Interns, Jared and Cryserica, worked toward their dreams and grew as young professionals right before our very own eyes! We had a chance to talk to Jared about his experience at the growing company this summer. Check out his responses below!
