MTEQ concludes Summer 2015 Internship Program

August 2015 – MTEQ has recently concluded our Summer 2015 Internship Program. Each summer, MTEQ invites top-performers from a wide range of academic disciplines to join our team. For three months, interns work side-by-side with our staff of engineers and scientists as MTEQ pursues new discoveries and provides critical services to the United States Government. At the end of their internship, students are invited to give a presentation on their project of focus, discussing what they’ve learned and what they’ve achieved over the past three months. MTEQ at once provides students with scientific challenges and a fostering environment within which to progress. As result, we have students return summer after summer, and several have joined our team full time upon graduation.

This summer, MTEQ had the pleasure of hosting seven interns who came to us from several different schools and a variety of disciplines.

  • Tyler Fuqua, a rising senior at the University of Mary Washington majoring in Computer Science with a minor in Applied Mathematics, helped us to develop a new online helpdesk ticketing system.
  • Kyle Tracy, a Computer Science Major at Mary Washington University, helped us advance the development of an Integrated System Architecture for sensor systems currently used by U.S. Forces in hostile combat areas.
  • Tyler Chuba, a rising Freshman at Longwood University, and Madeline Williams, a rising Freshman at Auburn University, together worked to increase the security of Army networks through the upgrade of Army operating systems.
  • Shannon Dutchie supported the NVESD Security Management Office.
  • Jerome Mueller, a rising senior at the University of Mary Washington majoring in Computer Science and Math, tested the image data processing and target identification capabilities of a cutting-edge prototype sensor.
  • Mikhail Pellegrino, a rising junior at The Catholic University of America majoring in Theology, supported the Safety Office at NVESD.
  • MTEQ would like to thank all these students on their hard work this past summer. We hope to work with them again in 2016!
