Aeronautical Engine Corporation of China (AECC) July 2013-August 2013

Engineering-International Business Intern

Contributed in GE Aviation Long Term Agreement (LTA) trade negotiation with a minimum $50 million bidding price. Interacted with multiple departments and accommodated them with important sourcing information

Worked closely with GEAE project manager and engineers to negotiate parts quote. Organized own initiatives sourcing information for engineers and managers. Saved time for engineers and project leaders to make decisions

Translated important market analysis report documents from English into Chinese. Served the documents directly to vice General Manager for making company operation strategy for following years

Communicated with either GEAE on-site or remote representatives in order to solve technical and purchase problems. Avoided critical delay delivery of company products

Pratt & Whitney May 2012-June 2012

Manufacturing Engineering Intern

Assisted in establishing lean manufacturing process for producing ring-shape honeycomb lock and jet engine case

Optimized engine case part manufacturing lathe process with multiple times short distance lathe processes, the part’s internal stress could be released uniformly and avoided unnecessary part deformation during machining

Optimized the engine case’s hole manufacturing process by the order of milling, reaming, boring to increase hole’s precision and decrease hole’s roughness

Verified the data recorded by 3D coordinate measuring machine and reported discrepancies to manufacturing engineer to optimize manufacturing process

Shadowed project engineers on production plan, cutting tool and tooling selection. Used AutoCAD to draw jet engine case 2D view. Studied numerical control machine code and gained knowledge of the cutting tool motion in numerical control machines. Took part in daily production plan meeting and debriefed meeting results to management.
