Welcome to MEE intern, Reid Schur. Reid is a senior, majoring in Mechanical Engineering at Washington University in St Louis. After taking an Intro to Materials Science course, Reid came away with a new-found interest in the field of of materials science, especially the use of materials science engineering methods in solving forensic problems. His next step was to find an internship that would complement his MechE major and his strong interest in Materials Science. A bit of research and some timely networking led him to an interview with MEE’s Principal Engineer, Larry Hanke. Larry readily recognized an opportunity to provide a motivated student with a hands-on learning experience as well as a chance to promote the profession he has been happily practicing for 30+ years.
We are pleased to have found an intern who is genuinely interested in the work we do here and look forward to working with Reid this summer.
