This summer, BGS had the pleasure of hosting several engineering interns.  This was a great opportunity for students and recent graduates to gain valuable insight into their future careers and connect with professionals in the field. Read more below on the perspectives of our interns and their experiences.
Brandon Hack
My name is Brandon Hack, and I am a recent college graduate from the University of Tennessee.  Throughout this internship, I have experienced the need for detailed oriented people within the engineering field. By making safety analysis documents with my fellow intern, I have experienced how important every detail can be and that nothing is extraneous. This will help in my future career as I am studying to become a medical physicist through the graduate program at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. This is my second internship with BGS, and I am thankful that during both summers, I felt welcomed and fought for by my supervisors and coworkers in a way that I feel like is rarely experienced in a workplace and I shall ever be appreciative of the knowledge I have learned here.
Eric Zook
I am going into my junior year of college studying mechanical engineering. My role in the internship program has been to assist the engineering team here at BGS. This internship has placed me in a situation where I am surrounded by amazing peers and mentors that help me develop as a team member and an engineer. I will be utilizing the things I have learned here to further build a foundation and broaden my scope as a student and engineer in the future.
Walton Borno

I am a junior at The University of Tennessee at Knoxville, and I’ve been a safety analyst at BGS over the summer. Through this internship, I’ve explored the ins and outs of safety analysis, and some of what it takes to be successful in this career pathway. This experience has given me insight to an avenue of nuclear engineering I otherwise wouldn’t have looked into. I’ve been grateful for the opportunity and I’m excited to find out where I’ll go from here.
