Student Experiences:

Manon Prairie joined SEAMOR Marine during the Summer of 2017.  As a third year Mechanical Engineering student at McGill University, Manon was eager to get hands-on experience at a robotics company.

“As the Production Planner and Coordinator Assistant, I monitored stock levels, bought parts when necessary and passed components on to be assembled by the Production staff or experimented with by the Engineers. I was able to work closely with vendors, obtaining quotes and organizing delivery schedules, learning how to establish the professional relationships that are so important in a career. Working for a small company also allowed me to gain a more practical knowledge of every step a product takes before it reaches the customers—from the initial design phase, to the production of the finished product and the financial implications of the entire project. My colleagues at SEAMOR were all very kind and knowledgeable, always ready to answer my questions. They demonstrated the importance of collaboration, communication and strong leadership while working through engineering projects. By the end of my short time at SEAMOR Marine, I felt that I had really become a valued member of the team.  As I move forward in my career and continue to develop my skills, I know I shall always look back on my time here fondly.”
