I am a senior mechanical engineer like many other people in the class and I think the strongest skill I have developed over the years is in computer aided design (SolidWorks). Other skills include:
- Wood working
- Basic programming (Arduino, Python…)
- Music (I love playing and listening to music)
I have also developed some skills outside of engineering. I started a student group that plays Gaelic sports 3 years ago and have been running it ever since. From that I have experience in financial management, fundraiser organization, funding proposals, event organization, skill development, and I’m also a certified Gaelic sports trainer.
I also love to brainstorm and develop ideas so if you need help coming up with a final project I can help!
I can also brew a mad cup of tea
I think it would be really fun to make a project centered around an interactive musical instrument type thing, so I would love to get your thoughts and ideas about something like that. What do you play? Also, wood working/machine shop skills are definitely things I am interested learning more about, so any help in that area would be much appreciated!
Looks like your skill set encompasses a broad range of topics, which should be useful for whoever comes to you for help! It’s good that you have some organizational skills in addition to your engineering skills, since a project will fail if things aren’t organized and don’t get done.
