Internship Description: Interns are expected to take direction from 3 senior electronics engineers and one materials engineer in supporting “back-office” type of work in support of daily design and business development activities.  One summer project may include cataloging, characterizing and simulating the behavior of our commonly used components.

Interns are expected to know how to use a digital multi-meter, power supplies, scopes, thermocouples, data logging equipment, MS Excel or Google Sheets power user, general hand tools and the ability to lift 25 lbs.

Major: Electronics engineering preferred.  Physics major or other engineering discipline will be considered pending interview.

Reporting Line: Training will be considered “on the job” training.  2-3 engineers in the office at most times for advice and guidance.  Intern will report to a Sr. Electronics engineer or one of the 4 company Principals.

Dates/Compensation: Internship start and end dates are flexible with the academic calendar – 10-13 weeks is assumed.  Compensation will depend on the level of experience and year in school. Typically $13-15 per hour for 32 hours per week.

Hiring Plans After Internship: Year round work is available. If intern/candidate is offered an opportunity to extend internship into the school year at fewer hours per week or a Co-op type of program, these options may be discussed.

Additional notes from company:

To set expectations for potential applicants, we are a lighting company and our focus is lighting electronics.  We fabricate our own PCB and make pre-production and prototypes in our Farmington Hills office.  We test and measure LEDs and LED systems as well as miscellaneous other electronics testing related to LED lighting.  Some work may be more mechanical in nature, submitting a functional part for prototype and assembling PCBs to 3D printed parts (outsourced), or it could be characterizing LEDs and reporting out on actual vs. data sheet performance. Our work load is pretty dynamic.
