We recently sat down with Marco Miranda, a 20-year-old senior studying chemistry at the University of California, Irvine for a quick Q&A session on what he likes about his internship experience at Fit-Line Global and how it is helping him prepare for his future.
FLG: What does your internship at Fit-Line Global entail?
Marco: My internship at Fit-Line Global includes adding changes to existing parts to create a drawing for each, as well as their respective PNG renderings. In addition, because Fit-Line encourages versatility, I assist in their five-stage component clean room process.
FLG: Why did you pursue an internship at Fit-Line Global?
Marco: I pursued this internship because I wanted to learn more about how properties of certain materials and purity (examples PVDF/PFA), are affected based on temperature and pressure applied. As a chemistry major, these are the types of studies and hands-on work that I appreciate the most.
FLG: What’s your favorite part about interning at Fit-Line Global?
Marco: My favorite part about interning at Fit-Line Global is being able to see my work when a final project is complete. Furthermore, I am appreciative that I can continue my education at school without having to stress about not having enough time to work. The company is very flexible with hours and continuously encourages me to complete my educational journey.
FLG: What advice would you give other students who are looking for an internship?
Marco: My advice would for other students would be to not feel like you must know everything or be the best. Just be prepared to work hard and not shy away from challenges.
After graduation, Marco plans to work on a water purification engineering site in hopes of acquiring enough knowledge and training to become an innovator within the industry.
