McLaren Engineering Group

Mechanical Engineering Intern

May - August 2018 • Livonia, MI

What I liked

I learned a ton here. I was almost always busy and challenged the entire summer. Every one on my team was also extremely friendly and I had the opportunity to get to know them. Every Friday we went out to lunch (even the chief engineer came with us) and I was able to play golf with people from other projects, once every two weeks.

What I wish was different

The interns didn't really interact with each other. There wasn't really an opportunity for us to work together or interact. I knew one intern before, but other than that, I only interacted with the other team members.


They have a car club and people who play golf. The car club has a race on the track and cool rides. When they talk about doing things outside of work, make it known that you're interested. This is the best way, that I found, to get to know your co-workers.
