Abstract: Serving another term as a cooperative program student at Marshall Space Flight Center, my tasks were largely varied within the EV32 Structural and Mechanical Design Branch. Within the branch, I helped provide structural and mechanical design support including: specialized engineering, technical assistance, program support, model and CAD packages for structural/mechanical component systems’ design, and development for spacecraft and vehicle systems. During this time I worked on efforts and projects that are proprietary and data sensitive and therefore not listed in detail here. Aside from these activities, I was being prepared for follow-on work and had to take course training and Preliminary Development Flight Instrumentation modeling as listed.
