Every summer, k-Space hires student interns and gives them an opportunity to learn first-hand about the many great opportunities in metrology–which spans physics, engineering, software programming, production, global shipping, and sales support.

Our interns are challenged, they are paid, and their contributions matter.

We put their skills (and interests) to work and believe this benefits each of them in their professional ambitions. We also do this to grow the STEM economy in our region.

This summer’s k-Space interns included:

From left to right, k-Space summer 2023 interns Caymen Cline, Logan Eggleston, Alexandra Daniels, and Tony Gan

Caymen Cline: pursuing a BSE in Computer Engineering at the University of Michigan. Caymen worked on a custom robotic arms project this summer and helped with assembly and prototyping of a variety of industrial metrology projects. His favorite project was learning to program PLCs with ladder logic code.

Logan Eggleston: working towards a degree in Advertising Management at Michigan State University, Logan supported the k-Space marketing effort this summer. This included writing social media posts, learning to analyze AdWords data, uncovering ways to improve our website, and helping the sales & marketing team prep for trade shows.

Alexandra Daniels: a high school student, Alexandra put her statistical and budding C++ skills to work, contributing to the software analysis tools for our glass breakage and glass defect detection products. She developed 5 different filters for k-Space’s C++ 1DC filtering library for noisy incoming data.

Tony Gan: a physics major at the University of Michigan, Tony was instrumental in optimizing, configuring and integrating a new RHEED electron gun into our kSA 400 software. Tony also helped our physicists on a variety of semiconductor metrology projects, including kSA ICE system testing.

Great work, students!

The work of each k-Space intern contributes directly toward developing the next generation of STEM workers. This is an important feature of the CHIPS & Science Act and a service we are proud to support.

Read about our initiative where we host local high school students. Over 2 days, our physicists and engineers show the importance of metrology, discuss the growth in the compound semiconductor market, and highlight the benefits of combining science, software, technology, and manufacturing to help build a more prosperous future.
