June 6, 2012 - Senior Espir Jon I. (E.J.) spent an average of four hours a day in the lab for a period of six weeks, participating in the Summer High School Internship Program at the College of Engineering, hosted by the University of Hawaii at manoa. This unique program offers a chance for qualified juniors to engage with faculty in a college setting and explore a higher level of academics. It also helps participants pursue a career in engineering by providing hands-on research and projects based around a field that best suits their skills and interests. E.J. was part of the group of 19 students who were accepted to participate in this exclusive opportunity. He joined the program because he thought it would be a great challenge to experience what engineers face everyday. “I learned a lot about the engineering world, and met people that I could be working with or for in the future,” he commented. E.J. reported meeting guest speakers from prominent engineering firms and attended various field trips and workshops. He also worked in an environmental engineering laboratory, and concluded the program with a presentation of his project. “I considered the hands-on experience as being the most important part of the program for me,” said E.J. He added, “on top of all of that, you get a nice recommendation letter.”
