Three students from The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) College of Business recently participated in Quadrus Corporation's unique internship program. College of Business students DeShandra Frazier, (Senior Business Management/Human Resources); Kate Porch, (Sophomore Accounting/Spanish); and Riley Vincent (Junior Information Systems/Cybersecurity) were hugely rewarded when their summer internships ended and they were hired by Quadrus Corporation as part-time, permanent employees while they continue with their academic coursework at UAH.

"This program was designed to allow our employees to get involved with the future workforce in our community." said Cassie Watson Scott, Director of Corporate Development for Quadrus Corporation. "We want our internship program to set the foundation for local students to seek employment opportunities within Huntsville/Madison County and take a second look at small businesses, like Quadrus Corporation, when the time comes to seek employment."

"Internships at Huntsville-area companies are great opportunities for UAH business students, said Dr. Jason Greene, Dean of the UAH College of Business. “We are so proud to count Quadrus among our partners in the community. Their internships enhance the education and professional development of our students while serving as a great example of the outstanding career opportunities available in North Alabama."

The successful Quadrus/UAH internship program continues this fall with new student participants majoring in mechanical and computer engineering, cybersecurity and supply chain management.

"Quadrus Corporation has helped me gain valuable experience to help me kick-start my career," said UAH student Riley Vincent. "I encourage every student to take the time and get involved in an internship program like this."

Quadrus Corporation provides expert software, systems, test, and integration engineering and process development and training to support complex and highly demanding defense, space and commercial projects at every stage.
