My entire college career has been filled with opportunities to practice being a good team member. Looking back on this, and into the future, I believe that my overall best team quality is that I am extremely supportive. I choose to highlight this quality because I consistently show that I am always eager to hear the successes and trouble s that my teammates have while we tackle the project. This supportive trait also arises since I always attend team meetings and am flexible with my schedule for planning meetings or extra ones.
I am also supportive in my team projects because I have a thirst for knowledge and dislike to see my partners working on tasks that I don’t understand. This drives me to learn about and understand all aspects of my projects – allowing me to review and help with everyone’s progress. Additionally, I hate turning in work which does not reflect a great effort on my part. I care about my image as a student, engineer, and professional, so I will always turn in high quality work.
In respect to this class, these are some of the things which I have knowledge about and would like to contribute:
- Solid understanding of manufacturing processes
- I know how to handle myself and equipment in machine shops
- I greatly enjoy using my hands and constructing projects
- I know how to use and am comfortable using many hand tools, for wood and metal working, along with lathes, mills, laser cutters, among others
- Certified to work in the Idea Forge Welding studio
- Decent amount of knowledge about SolidWorks
- Very comfortable with Arduino coding and hardware
- Very comfortable building circuits and understanding electrical components
- Great at not being afraid to ask questions when I am stuck.

I appreciate the emotional side of this, a quality often overlooked to group dynamics and project completion. I have some ideas for my project and typically try to avoid stuff that involves controls but might be less afraid with your experience to help me out.
These are all great qualities! Any chance you could teach me to weld? Do you know anything about powder coating, abrasive blasting or electroplating?
