Great success won’t come without great opportunity. Without the job opportunity offered by Innowing and the help of the staff and facilities here, I would not be able to design and develop the impressive training modules for our members.

Looking back to last summer, I was working on the design of the training modules of Embedded system and 3D printing. Starting from the planning, testing, carrying out execution and evaluation of the process, my path is full of passion and motivation of delivering the best for our next generation of engineer. Difficulties do exist. But just remember, the help from your intern partners, tutors and technicians from different departments will never be absent. You may face obstacles when you are planning or designing the modules, but Innowing would be the place where everyone’s ideas are very encouraged to be expressed. Trust your partners. That is how I gained the great success in duties.

During my two months of Internship, I successfully finished the design and execution of the two training modules (Embedded System and 3D Printing). Creative duties like product designing, video making and selecting training consumables to purchase surely upgraded my ability of handling executive duties. Generating worksheets for members and guidelines for tutors also helped me to stratify my knowledge of the above modules and generate attractive technology learning. Within this short period of time, I have gained a fruitful outcome more than I could expect. At Innowing, your ideas are very much welcomed, discussed, and supported. This is the best working environment I could tell.

I am looking forward to working again at Inno Wing, serving to help students to express their innovative ideas. Hope to see you working with me in the future. Let’s construct a better community together!

First of all, I would like to take the chance to properly thank the Innovation Wing, for having me as their student intern for the summer period. It was really a meaningful way to pass the vacation. Together with the Innovation Wing, we have provided training modules to help students kickstart their interest in building their own small projects. I was in charge of making the materials for Laser Cut Machine as well as the safe and correct usage of Power Tools.

After going through the training materials, students would then be able to use the laser cut machine to cut their very own cellphone holder, with patterns of different shapes, and to make their own mini-cabinet with the use of power tools to drill properly sized and located holes for fastening of screws. It provided me the opportunity to create innovative and interesting tasks for us engineering students,  and allows me to apply what I have learned in lectures to my job this summer.

I thank the Innovation Wing once more for giving me this opportunity, and I am sure that other students if given the opportunity, would love to be in this cause as well.
