Lani Lee, MechE, '21

This summer was the best adventure I’ve had in my life. Being in a foreign country with a culture and language so different from one’s own, this program challenged me to be more confident in my technical abilities and more responsible in my actions and choices.

Mitsubishi Electric is a large company that manufactures electric products used in factories and in homes. My group focuses on motor manufacturing technology. My project was on the automated winding machine for the magnetic coil inside motors. As an intern, I researched winding condition and derived new equations for issues in wire deformation. I created easily useable programs, reports, and presentations for different calculations in designing a winding machine. Through this internship, I was able to apply the skills I learned at MIT, and impacted the group, and hopefully the company in a positive way.
