They had to work hard to put my brother and me through college but they imbibed the value of knowledge in us from a young age. I took up engineering as a career due to my innate interest but I was the first in my family to attend a univeristy with diversified community or to choose chemical engineering. So, transition into university was one the hardest things I had to do. I could overcome this and turn things around thanks to the support from faculty, friends and mentors I met later
The undergraduate study in Mechanical Engineering has given me a comprehensive exposure to a wide spectrum of courses, namely, Heat transfer, Fluid mechanics, Internal combustion engine, Thermodynamics etc. In the second and third year of undergraduate studies I started building keen interest towards the subjects in the thermal-fluids domain. My propensity for thermal-fluids played a role in my selection of electives like Principles of energy conservation, Aerodynamics in my final year of undergraduate
When I was given toys, I hardly played with them rather tried to dismantle it and try to know the mechanism running it. During school days, I have participated in many science exhibitions which further motivated me towards taking my knowledge and experience onto a higher and advanced level. With this desire and curiosity to understand machines and mechanisms, I chose to complete my graduation in Mechanical Engineering. In the first year of my graduation, the subject of workshop technology was offered which helped me to understand the basics of manufacturing. It involved study and working on machines like Lathe, Milling, Universal Grinding Machine, and other specific machinery.
I decided on my project by my first idea not pulling through and then I figured that my welding teacher had a project that needed to get done and since I took weld 1-2 and metal fab I am very qualified to do so . Mr. Kennedy did have a project to build a dunk tank for a co-e so that is what I am doing The first step that I need to do was go online for a few models types that Mr. Kennedy could see and that Mr. Compagna could approve it. Then we went back to the computer to find out the measurements of the whole thing which Mr. Campagna thought it was a bit small so instead of 64 inches tall it will be 72 inches instead. I found my mentor by looking around. I had a few ideas that I could do and he just so happened to have a project that i could
The basis of our future is the knowledge we have obtained in the past is a concept that I have truly believe in. The foundation of my journey towards becoming an engineer was laid in India’s Premier Steel City, Jamshedpur. With regular visits to the steel factory, the world of machines and mechanics started fascinating me. As a young kid, I once went with my father to a Car Servicing Shop, I was amazed how by using a small handle, the huge car could be lifted, Pascal’s law was unknown to me, but it did fascinate me as how a man could make their work easier by use of simple machines. Each new concept put forth a new question but I wasn’t able to define it.
By the end of high school, students that have done this will have enough work that they can create a professional portfolio that showcases their talent and creativity in the field of graphic design. This portfolio is essential to the application, acceptance, and enrollment in a college, so that a student can major in graphic design. This portfolio is the difference between acceptance to or rejection from a college. Once accepted into a college’s graphic design program, a student should complete a Bachelor’s degree (Graphic Designer: Education). Essentially, college students should take courses in Studio Art, Principles of Design, Computerized Design, Commercial Graphics Production, Printing Techniques, and Website Design.
I have grown up watching “Discovery and National Geography channel” programs showing how Engineer’s solving inscrutable problems encountered during the construction of High rise buildings such as “Taipei World Financial Centre “or projects like “Rebuilding New York City 's Subway”. It made me mesmerized how we drive connections from nature to engineer these gravity deifying structures and how these modern structures are changing the face of earth. This sparked a wave of renewed curiosity and interest in understanding the engineering related to structure’s and I studied tenaciously to take Civil Engineering as under-graduate major. At the very outset of my undergraduate program, I formulated a plan for my academic development, outlining the objectives that I must achieve at different stages of the program. With due efforts, I have attained almost all of them.
For all of my life, I have had a skill and a great interest in the design and construction of a variety of objects and machinery. I have known since day one that all i wanted to do is design brand new and innovative technology. I have chosen Waterloo as my first choice of education for my future career as a mechanical engineer for many reasons. One being the schools amazing reputation as a school of applied sciences, having been given the nickname “MIT of the north” by many. I know a few people who have attended this University.
With this understanding, I always framed and rendered my life towards predetermined goals. I got enrolled in Bachelors of engineering program in civil engineering in C. K. Pithawalla College of Engineering & Technology, Surat which is rated among one of the best engineering colleges in Gujarat, India. Once I secured admission in one of the most contentious and meticulous civil engineering programs in India, I found civil engineering even more compelling and demanding than what I had thought of it. Right from the second year, my objective was to gain knowledge and understand the subject thoroughly rather than just scoring grades. I was unable to score decent grades till my 4th semester but then once I understood my goal, I scored and improved with huge margin from third year.
Engineering is the branch of science and technology concerned with the design and building of machines and structure, this is the way that most people would describe engineering. But truly at the core of engineering, it is a field that is dealing with research and development in order to build and improve the society. The idea of what we now call engineering existed since people have created things to help make their lives better. It has evolved over the years as societies advanced. These advancements came with the improvement and application of technology, a specific example of this occurred during the Industrial Revolution.
Working on cars is my biggest hobby, both money and time wise. After high school, though, I will be finished with Cowley and will attend Wyotech to further my knowledge in diesel and automotive performance. Wyotech is located in 3 states and i will be attended the one in Laramie Wyoming. I will have many certifications after I graduate from Cowley, but right now I am Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certified in Performance I and II and Electrical I and II. When it comes to learning these skills I am a quick learner, have a good memory, and good people skills.
Next year at Embry-Riddle I plan start studying Cyber Intelligence and Security. Ever since middle school I knew I had a developing interest in the field of computer science and spent most of my time building the skills to excel in my classes. One of the first projects I got to use the computer on was a video for the Oregon Trail. I decided that it would be best to design an advertisement to showcase the facts in a new and creative way. When my group turned the project in, and it was shown to the class my teacher rewrote the assignment according to what we did and used it as an example of great work when recruiting new people.
Back in the summer of 2012 I was accepted into the Rowan University’s Boys Engineering, Science, and Technology (BEST) Program. Throughout the event I was in awe and fascinated by what engineering had to offer. We built bottle rockets and constructed penny bridges, but what stood out to me the most was the hands on experience with computer programming. Our task was to create a calculator with the resources we were provided. Being thrown into something I have never experienced before was a learning curve, but eventually I was able to program my calculator to compute 2+2.
In high school, there are competitions to help teenagers gain hands-on robotics engineering experience. Two examples of engineering competitions include F.I.R.S.T., which is an acronym for “For Inspiration and Recognition for Science and Technology,” F.I.R.S.T., was founded in 1989 to inspire young people 's interest and participation in science and technology. And B.E.S.T., which stands for “Boosting Engineering, Science, and Technology.” In 1993, two Texas Instruments engineers Ted Mahler and Steve Marum created the B.E.S.T. competition. Mahler and Marum were serving as guides for Engineering Day at their company site in Sherman, Texas.
I chose the topic diesel vs gasoline engine, because I plan on becoming a diesel mechanic, and to help further my education. Another reason I chose this topic was for the many people who are unaware of the new diesel technology. For my advisor I picked Mr. Bedenbaugh, also known as Mr. B. Me and Mr. B worked together for my senior experience, in fact he was the one who helped me decide to make a V8 model engine for my community service. Mr. Bedenbaugh is also my first block teacher, which makes it much easier to ask questions and get the help I need for my senior experience.
