Successfully designed a renovated power distribution sys- tem inOpaLockathatwasdestroyedbythehurricanebytheendofthis internship (4 months) using a sof ware provided by the management. Projects

The Beacon Project

Derived theoretical calculations for circuit designs used for voltage regu- lation, designed schematic used for PCB design, state diagram for power management system, and a controller as the Booster Power Controller that drove the Signal Repeater Subsystem.

Home Natural Gas Sensor

Handled all project orders, organized and provided weekly reports to reach due dates, set meeting dates, structured and reviewed the ஹ nal ex- ecutive report, and designed the pitch for ஹ nal presentation for the fac- ulty members.

Wireless Telemetry for Animal Tracking

Designed a tank ஹ lter to clean up the signal, researched SMT parts to minimize thehigh-frequencyelectromagneticeஸfectsassociatedwiththrough- hole components, created PCB design and ஹ nished the necessary calcu- lations and project writing review before the due date that brought the group 97 out of 100 points.
