Duro Pros

Duro Pros participated in advanced Duro Workforce training — for a complete list of jobs & internships achieved by Duro Pros click here

Duro is perfect for someone looking for a hands-on experience. After my time at Duro I interned at Space Exploration Technologies.

Austin Hunt
Mechanical Intern, SpaceX

At Duro I was able to apply the theory I learned in my electronics and software engineering courses. The experience I gained granted me an internship opportunity at a cyber security company called Red Balloon Security. At Red Balloon security, I now work to secure embedded devices with intrusion detection firmware.

Peter Minzicu
Junior Data Scientist, Red Balloon Security

I believe the experience gained working for this company is invaluable as it creates a bridge for student to be marketable to companies.

Roman Maleque
Structures Engineer, QuEST Global

Duro has given me immense scope to apply the concepts I have learned theoretically and through projects in a real-world application. I have gotten the opportunity to work with a plethora of sensors and designed circuits to understand how they respond to changes in their environment.

Richa Netto
Software Developer, Verizon — Smart Venues

Duro gave me the platform I needed to jump start my career. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to get their foot in the door.

Stephon Nixon
Technical Data Analyst, Viacom

The experience I gained at Duro granted me a full-time position at Rockwell Automation as a Field Engineer. Rockwell Automation is the leader in smart manufacturing, systems controls and industrial design in the US.

Project Lead Engineer, Rockwell Automation

High School Students

Duro is a training partner of the NYC Department of Education and hosts programs throughout the Greater NYC area

I had a great time and I got a feel for the different aspects of robotics, and I now want to challenge myself further. I’m looking forward to using what I learned in the future.

Prasid
Senior

I liked the fact that we could basically create anything from scratch.

Johnell
Junior

At the beginning I didn’t even know how to work with the camera, but now I’m super confident in what I can do with CAD.

Bradley
Junior

I learned something that I probably wouldn’t if not given this opportunity. The instructor knew a lot about the software and he helped me understand the problems I was going through.

Justin
Senior

Learning CAD will build my skills in engineering fields like prosthetics. It will contribute to having a well paying job.

Constantine
Senior

The instructor did an amazing job. This workshop gave me a background knowledge that will be useful when I pursue my career.

Jazmin
Junior

I liked building different types of shapes on a new program for me. I learned you can CAD absolutely everything.

Maiya
Junior

What I liked most about the CAD workshop is the creativity potential you can achieve in the course. There is a big market out there for 3D modeling and robotics.

Zuriel
Senior

College Students

Duro is a training partner of the City College of New York, NYC’s premier public engineering college

I have always wanted to get hands on experience and I feel that Duro is the perfect platform for me to do so. At the company I also have the opportunity to mentor other women engineers in high school and share my story about how I got into engineering, which was a difficult path. Helping others is important to me, and I’m glad to have this experience at Duro where I can make a difference and develop in my career.

Esha Rahman
B.E., Electrical Engineering
City College of New York

Duro has helped me a lot through out this year, not only in my field but what it’s like to be in a team project. The hands on experience obtained from this program is phenomenal. For many students, obtaining a first internship is hard due to the idea of that a student needs experience to OBTAIN experience. The experience I gained at Duro has helped me land two interviews from other companies for the summer that will further my experience even more.

Marcelo Vergara
B.E., Electrical Engineering
City College of New York

Students seeking more experience will often attempt to subsidize their classroom education with clubs. Clubs provide a great service in this aspect, however, they fall short of what a real world project is like. This is where Duro was critical. The time that I have spent there I have learned much more about professional engineering applications than I have in any of my classes. They provide students the ability to learn how a project is managed in the real world.

Clyde Korn
B.E., Mechanical Engineering
City College of New York

Duro has benefitted me both in my academics as well as career development. I have learned different aspects of engineering that I haven’t before in the courses that I have taken so far. For instance, at Duro I get to work with microcontrollers such as Raspberry Pi and Arduino, and real life components and sensors. I get to experiment on these devices by manipulating its default program as well as building it onto the circuits. Duro has been helpful for me in gaining “outside” knowledge as well as experiences in relation to my major. It is a company that has and will continue to benefit many more.

Chorten Dolma
B.E., Computer Engineering
City College of New York

What separates Duro from other clubs on campus is that it incorporates different facets of engineering like electrical, programming, and mechanical. After being around many of the clubs in the ME department, a lot of the clubs do not change what projects they are working on every year; having Duro here gives students other new projects to work on.

Eddie Cheng
B.E., Mechanical Engineering
City College of New York

This experience was absolutely priceless. I was able to work with Duro through the fall semester, and hope that others will be able to benefit from its great culture just as much as I did.

Rubin Lehman
B.E., Chemical Engineering
City College of New York
