This summer Brother Sam Todd ’15 is interning at General Dynamics Electric Boat in Groton, CT for the the second year in a row. As a senior Mechanical Engineering major, Sam was placed in the Weapons & Mechanical Systems department that is working on the Block V of the VIRGINIA Class Naval Submarines.
Sam’s department is directly responsible for various mechanical components on the new VIRGINIA Payload Module, which was contracted to vastly increase the payload capacity of the attack class submarines. Sam’s main task is to research and design various options for position indication switches that will be integral to the missile tube muzzle hatch operation. Additionally, Sam will begin his second semester as DKE’s Director of Service and Philanthropy in the fall.
