Internship with Heartland Hospice

Internship with Heartland Hospice

Elizabeth
Major: Liberal Studies As a hospice volunteer, I was asked to attend weekly Interdisciplinary Group meetings (IDG) to stay current on the status of patients. This included new patients, those who were nearing the end of life and those who had died since the previous meeting. I attended two senior expos where I was asked to assist in sharing information with the public about services provided by Heartland and to educate people about the importance of making end-of-life decisions before a health crisis or terminal diagnosis presents itself. Hospice care isn't only about dying--it's about fully living the remaining days of one's life. I was treated as a member of the team and was involved with home visits to patients and their families, as well as to families whose loved one had recently died. I was part of a small team which coordinated with a local grief support organization to develop a gardening project for children in mourning. This was a summer-long project in which children attended sessions to plant, tend and grow flowers and vegetables as a mechanism for grieving.

Chit Zin
Major: Information Systems Tasks I have involved: " Activate Directory configuration for policy " Test Access control profile of Palo Alto firewall " User Access deployment " Writing script " Observe testing of Wildfire feature to forward suspicious file in traffic to Palo Alto lab " Testing Workspace as cloud based client " Learn how to troubleshoot PostgreSQL server and grant user limited access to specific tables " Check the URL filtering policy applied to Amazon workspaces instances " Certificate management of Windows system on Amazon workspaces server " Configure Amazon IAM " Configure the Amazon API Gateway I mainly involved in infrastructure development projects. My first project with cloud systems engineers, on standardizing user access control by using Active Directory configuration. This allowed me to observe the active directory on Amazon web service has the equal abilities to the locally hosted server. Beside it needs some caveats in configuration, it has major advantages in eliminating overhead without forgoing redundancy and performance. This assured me that the cloud-based infrastructure was fully dependable and increasingly become the option for new days' business with dynamic environment. Another project I worked on was creating parallel patching script for open sources. I used python and bash shell for this project. This project helped me reinvigorated my knowledge on scripting and horned my skill in debugging. The last project that I involved was developing Amazon lambda function to run and stop the EC2 instances.

Gerrit
Major: Allied Health Science I worked on a wide variety of tasks and projects in my time at TURAS. My supervisor aptly said that there is no such thing as a 'typical day at TURAS.' Each day had different tasks to complete and matters to attend to. My role on paper was to help the Tutors, but this took on many forms. I often supervised breaks, sat in on sessions, and prepared rooms for sessions, but I also served as a photographer and cameraman on occasion, helped students write their resumes, and even helped to carry boats that the students made from scratch.

Brad
Major: Engineering - Electrical The electronics lab was responsible for a large portion of the testing equipment used on the production floor. The most popular testing unit is known as the "lunch box" these are small boxes that allow the user to power a tail lamp and test the functionality of each lamp. Each of the boxes are built for a specific model of lamp, meaning that there are hundreds scattered around the plant. I was given the task to build these as well as maintain them when they broke. I also build more advanced testing units known as "smart lamps" these lamps allowed for individual LED control and were programmed with a micro controller. Throughout this rotation I specifically worked on the Ford Edge and the Ford Mustang.

Sam
Major: Engineering - Mechanical Working as an intern for the engineering department I completed a wide range of tasks. Like my last semester, I handled a lot of updating and redesigning existing tooling in the presses. Each production job has tooling originally designed that fits into the presses to produce specific features on the part. These designs go through constant changes as the tools wear down or industry standards change. This was all done using the latest version of Creo (3D CAD software). Besides just redesigning existing tooling I got to work with other designers on twelve new tooling jobs, and was able to take a lead role on two other new tooling designs. I also handled the design work for all gauges and managed engineering drawings for the product launches.
