Backer Marathon,Del Rio, TX

Manufacturing Engineering Intern

Summer 2016 & Summer 2017

● Designed and built automatic welder that eased and sped up the process of welding thermocouple tips o Manufactured the parts myself using machine tools such as a milling machine and lathe

● Designed new housings for the terminals of electric heaters, which made wiring easier o Designed using SOLIDWORKS Sheet Metal functions

o Created Excel program that controlled the part based on inputs in the program

● Created CNC programs to make a machine automatically form ends of tubes

● Analyzed returned products to diagnose failures, and found ways to prevent them from reoccurring

● Tested heaters with different filler materials to see which would be most efficient

● Used and maintained a 400 Watt CNC Laser Cutter

o Made parts for multiple projects using the laser cutter LEADERSHIP

● Texas A&M University Robotics Club (2015 - 2018)

Treasurer for 2017-2018 school year
