As we rapidly approach Christmas, the final decision on where to do our abroad internship comes closer. Only considering Engine Systems (ES), the expansion in USA has led to a number of new sites, now with a grand total of 13. Since we have the opportunity to go within the whole division of GKN Aerospace the decision is becoming tricky. There are so many interesting places to go and so much I want to be able to try. Even if it is usual that you stay within your area of expertise, you can also take the chance to see something completely new.
From my own point of view the plan is at the moment headed towards USA and more specific the GKN Aerostructures office in Santa Ana. From the previous trainees Martin and Oscar who went there I have heard nothing but good. Also Santa Ana has interesting technologies, for example within Ti Honeycomb panels.
Even if this is the current plan, things can change quickly and for me personally the most important thing is that they have an established Engineering office.
Have a great Sunday everyone!
