Hello, I am Byungik Jung. I am working as an intern at LiftPort. I majored in aviation information and communication engineering. After graduating from Kyungwoon university, I worked at the Korean Air Command Center as a Network operator. I maintained and monitoring Korean Airline communication network equipment like Router, Switch, VPN monitoring network performance, resolve technical issues. I am participating in the WEST program which is an International Education Exchange program in Korea. The WEST (Work, English Study, Travel) program is a Government-funded overseas program to support university students(youth).
My goal is to develop my core competency and global insight through language and internship training in the U.S.
I started working here after two months of language training in San Diego, CA. It's only been a week, so both Tacoma and LiftPort are still unfamiliar to me. However, LiftPort’s leader Michael is helping me adapt to the LiftPort and Tacoma quickly. In the first week at LiftPort, I spent time adjusting to the new environment and making plans. In the meantime, I studied how to use the project management program "Smartsheet" and took classes through Webinar. The most impressive activity was getting an overview of LiftPort's various activities directly from Michael. For example, I've learned a lot about the process and goals of the projects, the systems we're building at EML-1 points, the role of satellites, and so on. I can't wait to do some works at the aerospace company. I will do my best to improve my company's project.
My fixed task is to post a blog every week. I want to create a variety of interesting blogs and get people interested in aerospace. I think this is our goal and a way to promote our project more widely.
I am going to post the blogs every week because we are finding someone who is having the same plans with us, and will change the world. I think this is important work for our projects. I'm so happy to take this important role.
