Ms. Angela Bartolomeo, an ME S-STEM scholar, has had several internships in the past years. In her previous internship with Sigma Space she assembled and aligned optical equipment for lidar units. She is currently employed in an internship with the Naval Research Lab (NRL) in the Space Science Division. Her job includes writing a UI for communications with a spectrometer, using CAD software to design test/assembly equipment, and overseeing environmental tests for the spectrometer. Eventually, the spectrometer will be sent into space on a satellite to measure ions. She has been able to work on a variety of projects thus far, in not only mechanical engineering but also optical and computer engineering. She hopes to continue her employment there after her graduation from UMBC.
