Ford Motor Company

Dearborn, MI

Product Development Engineer (Rotational Program)

Hybrid Control Systems Engineer (7/31/2017-present)

Assisted in testing high level features for several hybrid platforms to ensure that all feature requirements were met in order for the programs to pass through internal milestones. These features included battery state of charge, battery power control, and electric rear axle drive. Led the effort to reduce redundant testing between the control systems team and the calibration team in order to improve efficiency across the department.

Hybrid Calibration Engineer (1/1/2017-7/30/2017)

Assisted in the emissions testing and design verification testing of four hybrid platforms. This included scheduling and running the tests at the emissions lab. The data from these tests was then collected and analyzed to determine changes that needed to be made to the base calibrations in order to meet emissions standards and pass milestones.

Engine Quality Engineer (10/1/2016-12/31/2016)

Worked as a quality engineer in the Dearborn Engine Plant, manufacturing the 2.0L GDI engine. Learned about Ford quality metrics and helped identify issues on warrantied engines. Implemented an on-line vacuum system to prevent contamination of the crankshaft and its bearings.

Cylinder Block Design and Release Engineer (5/1/2016-9/30/2016)

Lead design and release engineer for the Duratec 3.5L cylinder block for the 2021MY program. Communicated with the engine systems engineers to determine what added features would be needed for the new generation of block. Communicated the desired changes to CAD department for design changes that would meet packaging requirements, structural integrity standards, and on-line plant requirements.

Engine CAD Designer (2/1/2016-4/30/2016)

Designed new locations for knock sensors on future I4 engine programs. These knock sensor locations improved ease of assembly for line workers in the plant and also met all packaging constraints given from the engine systems department. The locations also helped to improve commonality across multiple I4 engine programs to reduce complexity.

Engine Systems Engineer (7/27/2015-1/31/2016)

Helped lead future models of Nano engines through all necessary milestones in order to achieve signoff from Chief Engineer. Led the campaign prevention for the Nano engines in order to cut down on warranty costs for Ford in the future.
