My skill set is very similar to many other mechanical engineers. Basic Solidworks and machine shop experience. As far as unique skills, I am minoring in TAM so I have a solid base with a lot of design software and methods. Things like Rhino 3D, Photoshop, HTML, basic JAVA, Aftereffects, Illustrator, laser cutting, and 3D printing. I’ve taking more design focused classes than most Mechanical Engineers. I’ve also had a few jobs dealing with fixing things so I know quite a bit about plumbing and household repair.
As for aspirations, I really want to get into some sort of design when I graduate. Whether that be part design or architecture, I really don’t mind as long as I am able to apply myself to make something that doesn’t exist.
