Fall Internship Opportunity in Rockville, Maryland

Work on cutting-edge robotic systems while leaning what is required for industrial machines to operate in the real world.

Temple Allen Industries ( produces aerospace robotic sanding systems in Rockville, MD. They are currently looking to hire several extraordinary high school seniors for part-time work this fall to support their engineering team’s efforts to deliver the next generation of Smart Automation EMMA™ equipment to customers.

Candidates should have exhibited responsible leadership, practical and theoretical intelligence, exceptional reliability, and impressive dedication to their First Robotics program and teammates in prior years. Candidates would be welcome, but not expected, to continue working at Temple Allen in January once the next FRC FIRST challenge is announced. They will also be eligible for consideration for pre-college full-time summer internships depending on their performance at Temple Allen this fall.

You will have the opportunity to support the mechatronics, software development, and electrical engineers responsible for their Smart Automation equipment. You should expect to work on system assembly (both mechanical and electrical), testing, research, and prototyping, among other duties. You will spend your time surrounded by engineers working on cutting-edge robotic systems and will be in a position to absorb quite a lot of what is required for industrial machines to operate in the real world.

Motivated candidates should be able to contribute around 10 hours/week without compromising their academic work, and you will need to have your own transportation to the facilities after school. Successful candidates who perform well this fall will also earn a donation for their FIRST Robotics Club at the end of the year.

Interested candidates should send a cover letter, resume, and current transcript, with the subject line “FIRST Robotics Student Fall Candidate” to Robert Kent, Vice President via [email protected]
