The Mayo Clinic Division of Engineering is a comprehensive engineering organization that develops unique medical devices for physicians and researchers at Mayo Clinic. Our devices span the patient care spectrum from benchtop research to patient bedside. This includes novel applications of deep brain stimulation, biosensor development, tissue engineering, organ assist devices, and surgical instruments. Our staff of project managers, electrical, mechanical, chemical, bio-medical and software engineers work collaboratively with Mayo Clinic physicians and scientists to transform clinical practice and medical research around the world.
The Engineering Project Management Intern will be introduced to process and documentation requirements for medical device development; gain experience interviewing project stakeholders and leading meetings to gather content for product development and support; learn how to develop reports to guide portfolio decision-making and product verification documentation; and gain experience needed for pursuing the Project Management Professional (PMP) certification.
The primary purpose of the Graduate Engineer Internship is to provide a graduate student with relevant engineering-related experiences. One or more mentors will be assigned to the intern to provide instruction, guidance and to assess performance. The intern is responsible for learning the procedures and processes of the Division of Engineering and the assigned work unit.
In addition, the intern will be given selected work assignments to reinforce the learning experience and to provide benefit to the work unit. The assignments may include developing a project strategy, gathering user needs, requirements and specifications, evaluating commercial components, assembling prototype systems, performing design verification and design validation, troubleshooting, technical writing, developing reports, and participating in design reviews. All assignments are within the context of the Division of Engineering Quality Management System (including safety risk management) and are performed in a multi-disciplinary development environment. The intern will be responsible for completing all internship-related assignments and reports for both Mayo and the participating educational facility (if applicable).
The candidate must have received a Bachelor of Science in Engineering, Management Information System, Business Administration, or other technology-related degree granting program.
