Are you looking to put your Ag Engineering and AST coursework to use in a real-world setting? Consider a paid, full time internship with Iowa Select Farms this summer! In this role, students will have the opportunity to work alongside some of the industry’s most creative thinkers and innovative problem solvers.
Students will spend their summer on a team committed to a highly collaborative installation and research project on positive pressure filtration, an innovative technology Iowa Select Farms is implementing to prevent the spread of viruses into sow farms. Positive pressure filtration pulls the air into the facility through special dormers lining on one side of each barn, then through filter banks, up into the attic then down into the barns through ceiling inlets. Students will gain practical experience with electricity, control systems and ventilation systems.
In this role, student worker job duties and responsibilities will include, but not be limited to:
– Troubleshoot and repair issues with the ventilation system to gain an understanding of how the system functions to prevent disease entry and provide the ideal environment for the pigs
– Completing barn audits for quality assurance
– Programming and monitoring ventilation controllers
– Developing troubleshooting manuals and SOPs for farm managers
– Project and crew management/leadership
– Analyzing and interpreting data
– Assisting in project design, planning and implementation
– Identifying improvements that can be made to the ventilation and filtration system and implement company wide
