We started a Summer Internship with Tennessee Technological University
Micheal A. Mason--Summer 2013
School--Tennessee Technological University
Major: Mechanical Engineering.
Working this summer at MGM Industries has been a great experience. While working on the test wall we
built wooden frames to hold the windows for testing. The three different tests we performed were air filtration, water
filtration, and structural. Using these three tests we found the design pressure rating for the window. If the window
needed to have a higher design pressure then we tried to find a way to strengthen the window in a way so it would pass
the tests at that rating. Working in the shop we learned how to weld and use a mill. We also learned about other
machining processes that we can use in the future. When they asked us if we would be willing to work on the production
lines I really did not know what I was getting into. We worked on multiple lines, the glass department, and in shipping.
It was a not an easy job but it was a great learning experience. Thanks, MGM, for an amazing experience.
