Featured in Boeing’s Women in Leadership Association publication as the BWIL Member of the Month.
Successful on-campus leader.
Nathalie Quintero should certainly be in the spotlight for her various accomplishments. Nathalie is in the Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Engineering program at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Daytona Beach. She is President of the Society of Women Engineers ERAU Chapter, and she is a member of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars. She participates on the SAE Women’s BAJA team and is a Women’s Ambassador Program and O-Team member. As an active student on campus, Nathalie has served as a mentor for various student groups. Nathalie also spent the summer as an Interior Payloads Configuration 747/767/777 Intern at The Boeing Company in Everett, WA.
Here is what Nathalie had to say about her internship experience.
Having the opportunity to intern with a global corporation, such as The Boeing Company, was an extraordinary experience this summer. This internship not only allowed me to see other possible areas within engineering, but it also allowed me to explore options into engineering management. This internship allowed to create connections and network with different managers along my commodity and different groups across the company. It has been an experience that will definitely benefit my engineering education and my future in the aerospace industry.
As part of the Intern Experience and understanding the customer needs to elaborate new Interior Configuration for our airlines customer, I visited the “Customer Experience Center” (CEC). This center showcases mock-ups of the interior configuration for the 787, 747-8i, 737, 777-300ER. They also have flight deck configuration, where the customer can experience and use a high tech aircraft simulator for the new 747-8i. The photo depicts me flying the new Qantas 747 and understanding flight controls for the new aircraft that is sky rocketing the market of long distance airlines.
