Gear making Internship on 01/28/2013 08:03:21 MST Print View

Hello,
I am an industrial design student at Carnegie Mellon University. I am looking for an internship for this coming summer (2013) at a small gear company doing R&D work. I love camping, biking, sailing, and kayaking, but even more than that, I love making gear and testing it. Relavant skills: 3D perspective design drawing, sewing, machining, welding, blacksmithing, and most importantly designing and inventing.

Any ideas for interesting companies to work at? Or any sugestions would be most welcome.

Thanksmy most recent bookbag for school

EDIT: sorry, appears to be more labor than R&D but couldn't hurt to contact Devin.
