I’m a soon-to-be graduating senior in Mechanical Engineering, with a little background in computer science. My school and internship experience has been primarily in product development and mechanical design. A few skills that might be helpful:
- Certified Solidworks Professional, experienced in ProE/Creo, and TA’d the Solidworks course at CU. Sure having someone to do cad is helpful, but if you’re anything like most engineers, you’d probably rather learn how to do it yourself. After teaching the course and working pretty extensively in a couple different cad platforms, I like to think I’m pretty good at explaining it and troubleshooting.
- Prototyping techniques: enter last internship in the surgical industry, and lots of high speed prototyping experience. SLA, sintered nylon, laser cutters, CNC, composites, material sourcing, that’s may jam right now. Maybe you have a conceptual idea, but don’t know how to make it tangible? PICK ME COACH!
- Presentation: writing, presenting, proofreading, or taking sweet photos of our projects for some super mega cool blog posts afterwards? Lets do it.
- McGuckins- I can walk all the way through the store and not even get lost anymore, so that’s something.
Really excited to get going on these! If there’s something else not on that list you need help for, definitely ask- I’m always game to try and figure it out!
Based on that video you showed our team in class, I’m sure you take some pretty awesome pictures, too. Nice skill set.
It looks like you have a really extensive and well rounded skill set. If I’m having any SolidWorks trouble you definitely sound like the right guy to go to. Not getting lost in McGuckins is a skill all on its own. Very impressive.
