Former Digital Insight Intern at Arup

about 2 years ago
I will work on many different tasks on one or more projects ranging from small CSS/styling changes on project interfaces to changing the overall functionality of a specific part of the web tools. I have also created web tools from scratch on my own. I program in JavaScript, HTML, and CSS mainly because I am a web developer for Arup, but I have the option to work on the database side of things or backend, etc.

Former Mechanical Engineering Intern at Arup

about 2 years ago
Mechanical positions at Arup take one of two basic trajectories (with some degree of overlap between the two): HVAC and CFD. HVAC-related roles can be filled by students pursuing mechanical engineering degrees or architectural engineering degrees (with architectural engineering students probably having an advantage here). CFD is more likely to just be mechanical engineering students. I primarily worked on the HVAC side and found that important skills include heating, cooling, and ventilation system sizing; a basic familiarity with ASHRAE documents; and familiarity with vocabulary and practices used in the construction/design industry. Proficiency with energy modeling software, Revit, and Microsoft Office software are definitely advantageous (though I was not proficient in Revit and it worked out alright).
