Certification in Pro-E 2001 (6 Months)

Academic Project: (Fall-2016 to Spring 2018) UNT- Denton-TX

1.Material characterization by Ultrasonic NDT technique: Product quality is assured by the calibration of its characteristic using the NDT (Non-Destructive Testing) techniques.

2.Quality assurance project in assembly line sampling: Design an assembly line using Simulink software. Sample Quality is tested by statistical process control method, Analysis variance method and confidential interval method.

3.Hands-Free Obstacle Assistant/AID: Design and development of a product from the concept level to Prototype. Techniques used in concept selection (House of Quality, AHP, concept scoring method) Designing (DFM, DFX), Cost analysis and Testing (Control chart, Histogram).

4.Project Management: Acted as a Project management consultant in one of leading HVAC company. Suggested few ideas by thorough understanding of their customer complaints and process. Used Gantt chart and Microsoft tool for management techniques.

5.Failure Analysis: Analyzed oil and gas pipes using Metallography (stereo microscope, optical microscope), FTIR, SEM and EDS methods. Found failure due to uniform corrosion and erosion corrosion.

6.MS Final-Project: Corrosion study using Simulation cell of microchannel heat exchanger in various corrosive electrolyte. Studied a Method of ASHARE Polarization resistance techniques for various manufacturing heat exchanger. Used various Metallography Study techniques (SEM, EDS) to generate the pit measurements.

Academic Paper:

7.Thermoelectric cooling(TEC) system: (Fall 2016): It covers the latest research on the material, ZT achievement and future trend on TEC system.

8.Innovation technology: (Spring 2017): Proposed a driver alerting system by including smoke detection, drowsiness and temperature alerting systems. This box is attached in car as an external device for a reasonable prize.
