Travis, a rising senior majoring in computer engineering at the University of Rhode Island, was placed in an on-site internship at Response Technologies, another SENEDIA member company, to learn about and work on installing a robotic spray system and mask-making automation. When Travis finished the 80-hour internship, Response Technologies offered him a position for the summer.

Jacklyn was placed through SENEDIA’s Supply Chain / Business internship program. As a 2020 graduate with a B.S. in Applied Mathematics and Statistics, Jacklyn’s internship at MIKEL allowed her to apply everything she learned throughout her four years at Bryant University, to real world situations.

Jim, an intern currently placed at Innovate Newport, was brought on through SENEDIA’s Supply Chain / Business internship program. Jim is completing his B.S. in Marketing from Salve Regina University. Due to the pandemic and lack of open positions, Jim considers himself lucky to have received assistance and guidance from SENEDIA in securing his internship opportunity.
