Joseph Young, a manufacturing engineer, has been with Middle River Aircraft Systems for 10 years – and began his career as an intern. After finding his internship in manufacturing engineering through a career fair at the Community College of Baltimore County, Young spent four years with the company while completing his degree, working year-round and even changing universities in the process.
After transferring to the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, he continued his internship at MRAS, and went on to secure a full-time position post-graduation, continuing to work in manufacturing engineering.
“I’ve grown to like the supply chain process, and this is where I see myself professionally. I can’t see myself doing anything else.”
“Manufacturing gives the ability to be down on the shop floors, physically touching parts and helping build them as well as figure out why things are or are not working as they should,” explains Young.
