Student Lucy at her internship site

Lucy's Story

During her internship at COWI in Copenhagen, Lucy Milde worked designing mechanisms for wind turbines that could withstand extreme weather conditions. 

During her internship at COWI, Lucy Milde worked on the design of the latch and door in the transition piece of a wind turbine, as well as how to mount the piece on the turbine’s foundation, allowing workers to enter the turbine. “I was excited about this opportunity partly because I wanted to experience Danish culture and life in Copenhagen, but primarily because of this position,” says Milde. “I really enjoyed working with my coworkers and found my projects interesting and challenging.”

“Denmark is a leader in clean technology and I wanted to learn from the best.”
