PVNET: Summer Advanced Technology Internship [FULL]


What new and exciting career choices will exist when you graduate and
enter the workforce? That is the question which PVNET internships help

Each year we offer an incredible one of a kind internship program for
students with a meaningful goal. This is not an exercise – it’s a real
world professional project which will serve a very important purpose to
the residents of the Palos Verdes Peninsula Community.

The broad scope of technologies and skill building opportunities in
this internship will expose many new emerging career interests with a
high probability of guiding students towards their career choices.

Register early to avoid missing out on this summer academic high tech opportunity.

Internship / Course Information:

  • Students will build a base unit UAV (unmanned Aerial Vehicle) quad copter and learn about this technology.
  • Students will evaluate possible design improvements, have the
    opportunity to design/modify parts, print new parts using 3D printers,
    and test their designs.
  • Students will be introduced to the concept of intelligent aerial machines/robots.
  • Students will receive an overview of digital mapping and it’s global application.
  • Students will work to build an advanced & specialized UAV which
    will be used to record high-resolution geographical aerial images and
    GPS data of an open space area in Rancho Palos Verdes.
  • Students will participate in processing the GPS referenced aerial
    images and data to generate high resolution georeferenced orthophotos,
    detailed DEMs, and topographical 3D models.
  • Students will then work to incorporate the georeferenced orthophotos
    into PVNET’s Geographic Information System (GIS) database and base maps
    which are utilized on a daily basis by the City of RPV Public Works,
    Planning, and other Depts.
  • Students will process the captured data for 3D mapping, data analysis, and modeling purposes.
  • The 3D topographical 3D models which the students create will become
    candidates for 3D Printing for visualization and presentation purposes.
  • Students will work with industry professionals.
  • Upon completion, students will be invited to attend and present
    their project to the RPV City Council during a regularly schedule
    council meeting.
