Southwestern Oklahoma State University (SWOSU) students Hunter Hampton and Oscar Garcia recently completed their summer internship program at the Delaware Resource Group of Oklahoma (DRG) corporate office in Oklahoma City.
The two computer science majors worked on internal procurement software system upgrades and build-outs in addition to a broad exposure to DRG’s corporate operations. Both students were the first students from SWOSU to intern with DRG.
The program was provided by SWOSU to expose students to the aerospace and defense industry in Oklahoma. The internships were funded by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Space Grant College and Fellowship Program through SWOSU.
“We are honored to have facilitated these two students and hope their exposure to the industry will increase their desire to consider a career in the aerospace industry in Oklahoma,” said Chairman and CEO Phil G. Busey Sr. “We hope to make this internship program grow with SWOSU and provide more students opportunity.”
Headquartered in Oklahoma City, DRG has become a leading global aerospace defense contractor. The company provides critical aircrew training and contract support services to the U.S. military and Allied Nations all over the world. Two of the top four executives of DRG (brothers Brian Busey and Philip Busey Jr.) are SWOSU graduates.
SWOSU is a regional university with locations in Weatherford and Sayre and now offering classes in Yukon. The university serves over 5,000 students and has 14 nationally accredited programs and is nationally recognized for its online programs.
