Nathan King - 2018 Steel Intern Scholar
This summer I worked as an intern at Universal Stainless and Alloy Products, specifically at their finishing facility in Dunkirk, N.Y., USA. Over the course of the internship I worked on the buildup to the installation of a new production line, assisted with continuous improvement projects, and became familiar with their order fulfillment system. This experience, coupled with an internship at Universal’s North Jackson facility during the summer of 2017, has provided me with a wealth of real-world exposure to steelmaking and a skillset, which will prove useful as I finish my degree and move into the workforce. I am grateful to Universal for the opportunity to work and learn at their facilities, and to AIST for their generous support of my education.
