Intergalactic is a team of engineers, technologists, designers, mathematicians, and problem solvers committed to a singular idea: reviving the no-boundaries mentality in aerospace. We are a team of the nation’s best. Intergalactic has designed a program that provides a collaborative and challenging work environment by allowing a student to assist the engineering department with building and testing systems and various other assigned projects. The Manufacturing Engineering Intern program is designed to last for one semester at a time and is designed to be eligible for course credit. At the end of the program, the student and the supervisor will discuss the possibility of continued employment in coordination with Human Resources. Interns are encouraged to seek feedback as often as desired. Intergalactic leadership will provide informal feedback on a daily basis, and formal feedback at least twice during the semester.
