Axient Celebrates National Intern Day

Happy National Intern Day to all the hard-working interns grinding and learning to make their mark on the world. We see you and appreciate all that you do!
Today, we are spotlighting this group of interns from our Columbia and Dahlgren locations: Brad Daugherty (studying at the University of Delaware, majoring in Computer Science/Applied Math), Travis Mason (studying at York College, majoring in Computer Science with a minor in Mathematics), Anshu Palle (studying at University of Texas at Austin, majoring in Aerospace Engineering), Rohini Ramesh (studying at University of Illinois at Urbana, Champaign, majoring in Aerospace Engineering), William Fluckiger (studying at Brigham Young University, majoring in Mechanical Engineering), Sarah Kemp (studying at Georgia Institute of Technology, majoring in Mechanical Engineering), Cole Kuster (studying at Harvard University, majoring in Mechanical Engineering), Patrick Quigg (studying at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, majoring in Aerospace Engineering), Matthew Snyder (not pictured, studying at Arizona State University, majoring in Computer Science), and Steven Zhang (studying at University of Maryland College Park, majoring in Computer Science/Mathematics).
From working on debris scene modeling with our design team to working on automated tools to model threat phenomena, these bright young minds have spent their internships helping to advance defense and civilian missions from aerospace to cyberspace. Some of their lessons learned during their time at Axient include realizing that “troubleshooting is always necessary and most things usually don’t work on the first try,” and that “almost no one has their entire career plan figured out, especially in college.”
Axient is honored to be guiding and working alongside our future leaders!
