MSE students: Rolled Alloys in the Toledo (Temperance, MI) area is looking to an intern for the summer. Since they do not provide a housing allowance, they prefer someone who lives in the area and would not require housing. A description is below. If you are interested, please contact Tyler Reno.
We are looking for a student interested in or in need of a summer position in the greater Toledo, OH area. Rolled Alloys is a stainless steel and nickel alloy provider to some of the largest companies in the world ranging from the aerospace industry to the chemical process industry and everything in between. One major component of what set us apart from the rest of the suppliers (stockists) that we compete with is that we have a metallurgical lab in our Temperance, MI facility which is about 1 mile north of Toledo, OH. We are staffed with 4 engineers in that lab as well as about 10-15 more throughout the USA. The lab is set up as a marketing tool to promote the technical assistance that our engineers provide to our customers. We conduct between 120-150 failure investigations per year. Those investigations can range from a simple grade identification using a handheld X-Ray alloy analyzer through a full blown failure investigation reading microstructures of many different samples.
We typically have 1 co-op student in our lab who basically runs the show. He or she would take on the task of the mounting/polishing of samples, day to day lab work including purchasing and some maintenance of the equipment as well as performing failure analysis on material that comes through our lab.
Our lab will expose students to stainless steel microstructures, duplex stainless steels, nickel alloys as well as some titanium and cobalt alloy grades. The problem that we currently have is that we have had a problem finding good qualified materials science students in the area which is probably due to only having one close materials program at U of M.
We are looking for 1 student for the coming summer months. The schedule is flexible regarding start and end dates. We do not care if the student is a freshman or senior but we are hopefully looking for a student who would be able to work more than one semester for us throughout his/her college career.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me and please let me know if you have any students that are interested in this position.
