EarthCruiser Intern Ian Ray


Why did you want to be an intern at EarthCruiser?

I wanted to be an intern here so I could learn engineering and manufacturing workshop skills.


What have you learned so far from your internship here?

I have developed my skills using Solid Works to design and assemble parts. I have also developed my skills in the shop, especially in the woodworking area.


What is your favorite part about interning at EarthCruiser?

I enjoyed the internship, but I liked designing parts in Solid Works the most.


Would you recommend this internship to your friends?

If a friend was interested in an internship here, I would recommend it. Working here gave me experience in a fully operational engineering company and I feel that experience is valuable.


What would you like to do after high school?

After High School, I plan to attend a four-year university. There I plan to major in chemical engineering while fulfilling the requirements for pre-medicine. After I receive my Bachelor’s Degree I plan to attend medical school.


Have you already applied to college and if so which colleges?

I have already applied to Montana State University and The Colorado School of Mines. I plan to apply to Oregon State, Colorado and Colorado State as well.
