Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering

Wright State University, Dayton, Ohio, USA January 2016 - December 2017

GPA: 3.15/4.0 (30 credit hours of coursework)

Bachelor of technology in Mechanical Engineering

SRM University, Chennai, India July 2010 – May 2014

GPA: 3.43/4.0


Graduate Student Assistant (Wright State University) January 2017 - December 2017

Assisted professor in carrying out a research in designing and 3D printing of cubic lattice structure with hollow connecting units that can be used as load bearing component .

The research work involved designing the component extensively using SolidWorks and printing it using a Fused Deposition Modelling 3D printer and later a compression testing is carried out to note the maximum load before deformation.

Finite Element Analysis using ANSYS is carried out on both the hollow lattice structure and solid structure for comparisons.

Systems Engineer (Infosys) August 2014 - December 2015

Monitored the applications on Linux servers used by BMW (Rolls-Royce, Mini) for their production.

Worked in engineering services with product development team where a product is designed using CAD and

developed from scratch. Actively involved in design and development of fatigue fixtures, transmission systems for clients.

Redesigned and repaired products for clients to lower cost by 30%.

Communicated with clients of MNCs from Germany and USA through phone or email and resolved the issues faced by their applications and kept them up and running.

Collaborated with superiors in organizing design thinking sessions and actively participated in brainstorming sessions during the training phase.

CADD CENTRE, Chennai (India) – CAD/CAE Intern November 2012 – May 2013

Designed 3D models of medical devices, motors, machines and other parts for clients.

Estimated and optimized the cost of the project by carefully choosing materials and manufacturing procedures.

Applied DFMA, developed drawings using GD&T. Drafted the design and manufacturing procedures.

Student Intern (My home Cements, India) December 2013- March 2014

Designed various parts required in a cement manufacturing plant, Prepared Bill of Materials (BOM), helped to maximize available space by design optimization. Achieved 20% greater efficiency.

Worked as an active team member and assisted design department.

Improved quality of design by reviewing and modifying the designs with design and manufacturing teams.

Reviewed the progress of the project with every department and developed project management skills.

Automotive Industry Simulation trainee (AISI) August 2012 - October 2012

IC Engine design from scratch and development, hands on automobile cooling systems.

Fairing / bodywork design and construction, interactions with airflow.

Learnt about Hydraulic damping, cartridge forks, shim stacks, Oil/gas damping, injection technologies in engines.

Complete engine design of TATA ace, a vehicle used to transport goods.


3D printing of body centred cubic lattice with hollow edges using FDM:

Independent study, Wright State University, Dayton, OH August 2017 – December 2017

Thorough research on additive manufacturing processes and a model of body-centered cubic lattice with hollow edges is designed using SolidWorks. With the available Fused Deposition Modelling 3D printing machine, a prototype is printed and is concluded that hollow structures are possible and indeed have more strength. The volume of structures, one with hollow edges and one with solid edges is taken care to be approximately same and the hollow structure happened to have more strength than the solid one.

Static analysis of both the models is done in ANSYS and results are utilized for further optimization.

Design of shock absorbers for fork of a bike

Course project, Wright State University, Dayton, OH January 2017 – April 2017

Design of a shock absorber for a bike that can be included in the fork to reduce impacts on the bike and rider.

Reasonable usage criteria, material and dimensions for the bike are defined and the forces acting on the fork are considered to figure out the potential modes of failure. These failures include buckling, deflection, failure due to combined loading stresses, pressure vessels, fatigue etc. Desired wall thickness is chosen after making a plot of wall thickness against the stress in the shock for range of pressures considering other potential design constraints.

Prediction of flow separations

Course project, Wright State University, Dayton, OH August 2016 -December 2016

Finding the separation points of a flow over a flat plate with a cylinder. Thwaites criteria and Stratford's criteria methods are employed in this project to determine the separation points. The results obtained by using Matlab are compared to the experimental values and proved those values are numerically close.

Design and Fabrication of Stair Climbing Wheel Chair.

Under graduate project, SRM University, Chennai, India Sept 2013 – April 2014

A team of 2 students designed and fabricated a Stair Climbing wheel chair; movable on uneven surfaces and different terrains. Modelled in SolidWorks, employed unique mechanism; four bar linkage mechanism between chair and suspension.

Design and development of a Line Sensing Robot

Under graduate project, SRM University, Chennai, India December 2010

A line sensing robot was designed using SolidWorks and a micro controller was programmed and installed in the robot to function as per the requirement which is following a line on the floor.
