I am currently in my last semester of Mechanical Engineering. I have been apart of many projects throughout my college career. I have found that i have a strong skill set in CAD, specifically in SolidWorks. In fact, during the last two big projects that I was apart of I took the role as the CAD Engineer. I really enjoy working in groups and I like fabricating dynamic projects. I also have some experience working with Matlab and Arduino. Though coding is really not my strong suit and it’s not my favorite thing to do, I can appreciate the usefulness of it. I also have some manufacturing experience, which is a skill that I would really like to expand.
This leads me into my aspirations. I would like to develop my manufacturing skills further, because I think it is very important as an Engineer to appreciate and respect machinists and how things need to be built. I would like to work in product design as a Mechanical Engineer in my career. I also want to be more creative in making projects more appealing to users. Most of the projects I’ve been apart of revolve around functionality and not necessarily how it looks. That is also a reason for why I am taking this class.
