University of Maine rising senior George Bradbury of Hopkinton recently completed the General Dynamics Bath Iron Works (BIW) summer internship program within the Estimating Department.
Bradbury, who is majoring in finance and accounting, focused on providing estimates for different work that is being done in the shipyard using Excel models and quotes from vendors. The estimates allow them to determine how much work can be taken on at a given time and provides prices to give the Navy.
“Throughout my time here at BIW I have had the pleasure of taking on many different tasks and trying out new opportunities,” Bradbury said. “It has been great to see how each department communicates and works together to achieve the main goal of building a naval ship. I feel as though one gains a sense of patriotism by helping produce these prominent naval ships for our military.”
Along with their day-to-day tasks, BIW interns completed group projects exploring process improvements within the shipyard. Bradbury and his group focused on updating the temporary service plan that is used at ship’s completion. To do so they worked on determining where and when services such as venting and power are needed.
