Skill Sets and Personal Aspirations

I am a mechanical engineering student currently in the BS/MS program. I have all the fundamental skills of a CU mechanical engineering student with high proficiencies in Matlab, SolidWorks, Excel, machining, system dynamics and integration. I also have experience using Photoshop, coding in C/C++, and building artistic projects. I really enjoy working with others to come up with an interesting and original project to work on.

When working on a project, I sometimes get stuck on one solution and continue to try and use that solution when there are better ones out there. I like discussing with others what their solutions to a certain problem might be to open up my mind to different possibilities. This is beneficial for me because I can usually build off other’s solutions to make the best possible project.

Tanner,
I literally ran into the same problem tonight! I also tend to sink a bunch of time on a particular, less-effective solution – only to find out after the fact that there was a simpler, more effective solution. I really look forward to test my assumptions and redirect my trains of thought with others in this class.

Its nice that you have decided to further your career. When working on a project and you get stuck try consulting your team members! Getting different perspectives on a project can help break someone out of one way of thinking. I look forward to what you decide to do for your final project!
