Regal Marine Industries, Inc.

CAD Documentation & Systems Engineer

May - August 2019 • Orlando, FL

What I liked

My favorite part about working at Regal was seeing how a large scale manufacturing plant operates-and contributing to part of that process. It was neat splitting my time between working on the computer and going out in the plant to interact with shop workers.

What I wish was different

Regal employs Systems Engineers, and I wish I was able to spend a little bit more time working under them and learning the ins and outs of how to optimize a marine vessel.

Advice

This was a great internship experience and one that I felt complimented my previous experience in HVAC Engineering very well. I think Regal is a great place to work because you can see how Mechanical, Electrical, Systems, Industrial, and Structural engineers all work together and battle timelines to produce a final product.

Industrial Design Intern

June - August 2016 • Orlando, FL

What I liked

I like how I got to try all sorts of design work, including engineering and problem solving with learning adobe programs such as photoshop and illustrator, and seeing the entire production process of boat manufacturing. I really like how I mentioned I didn't prefer to stay behind a computer so I go to do a lot of hands-on work with the prototyping sewing team. I got lots of experience to try all parts of design to figure out what I liked, as this definitely wasn't a coffee fetching job!

What I wish was different

It's a bit of a drive to the location, and it is a bit secluded.

Advice

It's a bit of a smaller company and full of older people and a bit more conservative if you don't like that sort of environment. Outdoors in the shops there isn't air conditioning so just be wary and hydrate because Florida get's hot in the summer!
