Greg Brooks wants to work with audio equipment after he graduates, but that didn’t stop him from making the most of an electrical planning internship with Nissan, the automotive giant.
A junior electrical engineering major from Cleveland, Brooks was one of 20 interns working at Nissan’s Technical Center in Farmington Hills, Mich. this summer, where he was involved in project management for the electronics design department. He worked on several projects, including surveys comparing Nissan automobiles to competitors’ cars.
Over the course of the 14-week internship, Brooks used his free time to learn more about the audio department at Nissan. “This was really a great learning experience,” he said.
Brooks was also responsible for creating five new job procedure standards for the electrical engineering department at Nissan, working with engineers in the department.
Books learned about this internship opportunity t a conference for the National Society of Black Engineers in Detroit, which he attended as the president of the YSU Chapter of NSBE. As a student, Brooks has also been active in YSU’s NAACP chapter and Be the Bridge.
