Advice for your Career and Internship Search in Biomedical Engineering and Medical Technology & Innovation

Join us for a Skype interview with an Applications Engineer and Sales Support at Instron where we will discuss the day-to-day duties of an applications engineer, the transition from college to industry, and general career advice. Bring questions or just a listening ear!

Instron designs, manufactures, and sells/ services mechanical testing equipment - so, tensile, compression, flex, peel, friction, cyclic testing type stuff. Elena specifically works with customers to determine the appropriate mechanical testing of devices in the forms of support, product management, and training. She works with Medical Device manufacturers on how to mechanically evaluate their products and travels to large biomedical companies frequently.

Career resources including alumni profiles, job descriptions, education options, search strategies, and company databases to start you on your internship and job search will also be available from the prior CMTI Career event. Visit the CMTI website for more information.
