Mechanical Engineering Intern

Full-time internship

Pasadena, CA


CarbonCapture, Inc. is a start-up climate tech company focused on reversing the effects of climate change by removing CO2 from the earth’s atmosphere. Using a process called Direct Air Capture (DAC), our mission is to economically remove CO2 at a massive, world-changing scale. CarbonCapture was created at Idealab, a leading technology incubator located in Pasadena, CA.

The mechatronics intern will be responsible for a wide range of hands-on tasks and modeling activities. Carbon Capture, Inc. is developing various prototypes to test and optimize carbon capture processes under various conditions. The mechanical engineering intern will collaborate with the engineering team to design, build, modify, and optimize the various prototypes. This will draw from a wide range of engineering disciplines including mechanical, electrical, software, and chemical engineering.

The internship will primarily run through the summer of 2021. Other terms also available.
