Josh's Internship at Grundfos

While interning at Grundfos, Aerospace Engineering student Josh worked to develop an augmented reality remote support demo application for the AQpure water filtration system

During his MIT-Denmark internship with Grundfos, Josh's project was to explore how augmented reality could be utilized throughout a product’s lifetime, focusing on marketing, pre-installation, installation, operation, and maintenance. He developed an application that users could employ to see what different configurations of the AQpure system would look like in their facilities, to highlight safety warnings, and locate sources of error, among other things.

“By participating in MISTI, I have come to appreciate the strong commitment to sustainability, the trustworthiness, and the excellent work-life balance which are all ubiquitous in Denmark.”

This internship was Josh's first time traveling abroad, and he found the experience provided new experiences both professionally as well as personally. Living in Denmark challenged him to be more outgoing, try new things, and learn about the world outside the US.

“I have lived in the United States my entire life and have never left the country before this summer. Through my time [in Denmark], I have been exposed to a culture which I feel is genuinely caring and committed to the wellbeing of both its people and the environment.”
