Engineering Internship Program

IngMar Medical’s international engineering internship program creates a bridge between culture and technology. Our small company atmosphere allows you the opportunity to make a large impact, while experiencing the exciting culture of Pittsburgh. Below is an interview with two of our current interns.

MaxMeet Maximillian Maier

Maximillian (or Max as we call him in the U.S.) is IngMar Medical’s 35th intern. He comes to us from RWTH Aachen University where he is is pursuing his Masters Degree in Mechanical Engineering with a concentration in Occupational Fields Design Engineering and Medical Engineering. Max is completing a year-long internship with IngMar Medical.

What are some of the things you do on a daily basis at IngMar Medical?

My primary purpose is to assist in solving and troubleshooting technical issues. I’ve also had the opportunity to develop new products and features, improve existing products and features, and administer calibration tests.

What is your favorite thing about working for IngMar Medical?

Rather than doing administrative-type tasks that can be typical of an intern, I am able to be a contributing member of the engineering team. With that comes greater responsibility, but I know I’m never alone. It gives me the experience of working for a real company as a member of a team, and allows me to apply what I’ve learned in school to real life situations.

What is your favorite thing about America?

America is both very similar to and very different from Europe – it has unique cities, landscapes, and history, which is fun to explore. Sports are also a big thing in the United States. People are very passionate about their hometown teams and you have the ability to try any sport you can think of, at any skill level. For example, I am a member of a hockey team.

What would you tell future students who are considering an internship with IngMar Medical?

Do it! You’ll learn a ton about your field of study, and life in general.

TobiMeet Tobias Scholz

Tobias (or Tobi as we call him in the U.S.) is IngMar Medical’s 37th intern. He comes to us from Leibniz University Hannover where he is is pursuing his Masters Degree in Technical Informatics. Tobi is completing a six month-long internship with IngMar Medical.

What made you decide to do an international internship?

I have to do an internship for my master’s degree and always wanted to work in a different country, so I thought this was a good way to combine these two things. Further, I think you learn so much more about a country, yourself, and your area of expertise when you have to speak a different language in a different culture.

What are some of the things you do on a daily basis at IngMar Medical?

I quickly got assigned to lead my own software project that will help the production team to calibrate the ASL 5000 Breathing Simulator. I also do a lot of testing for urgent problems that need to be resolved quickly.

What is your favorite thing about working for IngMar Medical?

IngMar Medical is a rather small company and you get to know everyone quickly. The atmosphere is really great and there are always a lot of interesting things you can do no matter your engineering specialty.

What is your favorite thing about America?

I feel very welcome here. Most people I talk to are really interested in what I’m doing and who I am. Other than that, the craft beer selection is great and Pittsburgh especially seems to be a really affordable city to live in.
