Design & overseeing of pressure vessels, and pressure fittings
Engineer in Training (Former Employee) – Fort Saint John, BC – 16 April 2013
Every day represented a new challenge. I often created 3D models and drawings of various machine parts and pressure vessels. Quoting on incoming work, reverse engineering customer's supplied parts, preparing reports, checking quality control results, and managing projects were all activities that consumed my time during the work day.
I learned a great deal about the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, Process Piping code, and all the standard ASME codes for materials and their standards. I also learned to be percise and accurate with my work, and to take my time to make sure that it is correct. I also learned a great deal about welding and quality control, machining, and managing people.
I enjoyed working with the people in the shop, my supervisor (technical manager) and the field and plant management. I felt that I learned a great deal working for the company.
The hardest part of the job was the tasks sometimes were completely new to me, and I was expected to find the solution on my own. I found the solutions, and feel that the process has helped me learn.
I enjoyed the change in assignments, and carefully reading and learning codes. I find that the more I use them, the better I get with them, and the easier that they become.
