My time at Innovative Automation was an amazing opportunity for myself to not only develop my skills but to expose me to a wide range of different roles within the company. Innovative Automation is a company that provides automation solutions for tasks such as welding plastic together or loading/building parts autonomously. My first week was spent in the sales department where we would conceptualize an automation process for a customer, model it in CAD, and present it to the customer. I learned a lot about how to make machines work and how to take a problem and find a solution. My second week was spent in IT, where I learned about the complex networking system that runs the company. My third week was spent on the shop floor where I did a report on product quality, as well as working in Continuous Improvement where I saw suggestions become reality. My final week was again spent in sales, where I was tasked with my own project to figure out a solution and model it in CAD. Overall, Innovative has been an extremely welcoming community filled with brilliant people creating advanced technology, providing me with invaluable experience for the future.
