On April 8, the Physics, Computer Science and Engineering department hosted Swisslog at Pizza My Mind. Swisslog is headquartered in Switzerland and has offices all over the world with their North American headquarters located right here in Newport News, VA. Specializing in logistical automation for warehouses, Swisslog serves customers from retailers like Walmart and Target to medical companies like Pfizer. Swisslog is working to shape the future of intralogistics through data driven, robotic, flexible automated solutions to best serve their customers. Presenters Brian Stroup, Manager, Solution Architecture and CNU Alum, and Joan Negron, Human Resources Assistant, joined the department to talk about the opportunities available at Swisslog.
Swisslog’s Software, Controls, and Integration Unit specializes in the non-mechanical and non-civil engineering portions of projects. This unit is the perfect fit for students studying computer science or computer engineering. Swisslog fosters a culture of diversity and great teams working together. Brian Stroup talked about having a multitude of opportunities to travel before COVID-19. He was able to meet with other Swisslog teams in other countries and attend trade shows to see what other companies are developing as well as present on Swisslog technologies.
Swisslog is looking for students to join their internship program who are studying computer science, computer engineering, electrical engineering, information systems, business administration, and physics. Internships are paid, and interns work alongside full time employees on real projects, solving real problems. Swisslog also has full time opportunities for recent graduates.
