My skill set relates mostly to my engineering background. As a Mechanical Engineer with a Computer Science minor, I have experience with milling, 3D printing, electronics, coding, laser cutting and modeling in SolidWorks. I work as a research assistant in a robotics lab, where I have refined my electronics and coding skills. I have a learned how to work with Raspberry Pi’s and Arduino’s, and have further developed my knowledge of Python. I have also spent a lot of time in this lab prototyping in SolidWorks, laser cutting plastic and cardboard and 3D printing to create working prototypes. I feel that these skills in particular will be very useful for our final project. I have experience milling metal and plastics, and I am fairly good at working with hand tools and woodworking in general. I am also very familiar with HTML, linux, and C++.
My career goals are somewhat fuzzy at this time, but I will either end up in a startup environment doing integrated product design or I will end up working in the defense industry doing Aerospace Engineer, either as a structures engineer, a systems engineer or a test engineer. Most of my passion lies in Computer Science, and I would love a career where I can combine my background in Mechanical Engineering with my passion for computer science.
