Shen’s Aspirations

What I plan to learn in this class is to get a feel of how aesthetics works with engineering. After 4 years in mechanical engineering, we learned lots of stuff but not anything art related. We all know that a product needs to be good looking to sell. That’s the reason why I am in this class.

As of skills, I have never used 3D printer and have very limited experience with the laser cutter. So I plan to learn and use these tools for my project. Hopefully I can be very comfortable with them.

For my first job, it has to be mechanical engineering related. I’m a car guy, so a job offer from one of the big motor companies would be perfect for me. As for dream job, I want to be a race car driver or even a jet pilot lol.

  • Wow! Hope your dream can come true! Totally agree with your that our department has limited resource in art, which is essential in engineering world nowadays.

    Sounds like we have similar aspirations. I’m not really a car guy, but we are both interested in the aesthetic design aspects of engineering. Probably why we are both in this class! I too feel that the mechanical engineering department is very light in this arena even though there are so many interested in going into this realm. I haven’t done the training for our 3D printers, but I worked with one at my summer internship. If you need help setting up a CAD file for printing let me know. I’m also pretty good with our laser cutters, so I can help there. See you in class tomorrow.
