More than 65 hours of working every week, no weekends off, didn´t enjoyed this. I am not passionated about this. As for everything in life you got to be really passionated about this to be a Mechanical Engineer. If you do not enjoy the process of calculating, designing, maintaining, in general, working with machines and mechanical parts, thermodynamics, Fluid Mechanics, do not choose Mechanical Engineer. It is very intense.
This was an internship that I landed after taking drafting and ME classes. I really enjoyed it, but it wasn't for me. I wanted to get more involved with the design side. My role was to take line drawings and put them into the computer system by recreating the parts on a CAD system. I had to use trigonometry and basic algebra on a regular basis. I also had to attend the occasional staff meeting. Otherwise, I was usually left to work on my own.
