Hi guys. Good to get down here again and write up something for my Internship’s weekly update. For the first 2 days I just sit in office doing some small task. My supervisor don’t give any work as he always says “relax, don’t rush. When time is coming then you will know”.
Yes he’s right. Start on Wednesday I was asking to go to QA/QC Department and meet with Mr. Fong. There he explain to me if I am interested to follow him do some QA/QC training and specifically he says will let me to learn how to do die-paint test for welding inspection purpose.
Actually I only got 3 days for this job starting Wednesday till Saturday because Mr. Tan need to prepare a full report for project cost and should submit it by Saturday so he let me do other work for a while.
But sadly to tell since I got a problem to get safety application – safety application is critically compulsory when you enter the manufacturing side – I being ask to follow Mr. Wong Chong Meng, a Project Manager just like Mr. Tan but his working area is to deal with different client compare to my supervisor.
For the record, Mr. Wong deals with client like TNB – such a power plant company. The first question he asks me is, “Do you know how to read technical drawing?”.
YES I DO SIR!
Well for the information especially to my friends in engineering field if you guys interested in oil & gas or power plant and anything related to both of this such as piping, metal structural the Must-Master-Software is AutoCAD. So I am sad to tell him that I am not really familiar with AutoCAD function since I just leave it for almost 3 years ago. I am almost forgotten anything about AutoCAD.
Then I tell him that I know – not master yet – how to handle Autodesk Inventor. He just stares at my eye and smile. Kid, here Inventor has no value. Sigh.
The task is still same like before. What I need is do a complete calculation for total tonnage for every single part of metal structure. For this time it was a drawing to build 1000MW Manjung Coal Fired Power Plant by TNB. What I recognized is it was designed by Alstom and Shanghai Chinehwa Engineering & Technology Co. LTD.
Yes it was a part of job scope for structural engineer.
Lot of work – of course!
Complaining – not a good choice thought.
The last choice I have is ENJOY my work. Smile.
Stay tune guys….
