Summer Work Placements

In 2018, 16 high school students were hosted at nine ocean science and technology companies in St. Alban’s, Harbour Breton, Pool’s Cove, Corner Brook, Clarenville, Harbour Grace, Mount Pearl, and St. John’s.

They worked on diverse projects including development of underwater camera platforms, research and testing of 3-D scanning technology, invasive species monitoring, corporate sales, collection and testing of samples for fish health research, electrical systems design, welding and fabrication, and engine repair. Here’s what two of the interns had to say about the experience:

“Before the program, I was pretty set on becoming a naval architect, but now that I have been working with electrical and mechanical engineers, I have been able to see how they design their own technology to explore the depths of the ocean.”
– Keegan Rolls, Internship with SubC Imaging, Clarenville

“I learned that there are many more jobs out there than I thought there were. My interests have definitely changed.”
– Anna Behm, Internship with Genoa Design International, Mount Pearl
