Harum Cruz Aguirre

El Paso TX ***** 915-***-****

Innovation driven & dynamic self-starter with passion about the technological industry. Mechanical engineer looking for an opportunity to contribute the enjoyment of resolving challenges with analytical, communication, leadership & team work skills for this exciting position and the advancement of the company.


Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering

The University of Texas at El Paso, May 2018. Overall GPA: 3.36

A.Project Experience

The following projects provided technical experience with BOMs, SRR, PDR and CDR presentations as well as proficiency with CAD functions, fluid dynamics, understanding of turbulent vs laminar flows, engineer calculations & meticulous analysis.

1- Fluid Analysis of a Rear Wing/ Spoiler: (in progress): Fluid analysis on different self-made designs of rear wings for a Toyota Celica GTS, using CAD and the Ingrid Cloud website for the CFD simulations. Objective is to increase fuel efficiency by reducing drag force. This is a personal project.

Vehicle Concept (Spring 2018): Led a team of 6 people. Concept was based on a market analysis, a competitor and a costumer. My CAD design skills were a fundamental contribution to the technical side of the project. The design was classified as the most creative modern and well-made vehicle concept. The team classified me as a highly effective member under CATME online peer evaluation made by the professor.

2- 6-axis robotic arm (Spring 2018): Created the schematics, PCB layout and led a team of 9 people to design and build a robotic arm using CAD software for the mechanical components, and E.D.A. software like ISIS and ARES for the electronics schematics and PCB layout.

3- Heat Exchanger (Spring 2018): Made thermal analysis on a heat exchanger using Ansys Fluent for the CFD simulations, wall modeling & mesh sensitivity. They became 90% accurate to the calculations obtained by my peers, a team of 7 people. Design was classified by the professor as unique. It was then built and tested, obtaining final results with a 98% accuracy, compared to the calculated predictions.

4- Bike Frame (Fall 2017): Led a team of 5 people and elaborated a bike frame design using aluminum 6061 with a safety factor of 3, using CAD software and conducting a finite element analysis on the frame. Final design consisted of 50% Nastran calculations (FEA software), 35% CAD software simulations and 15% hand calculations.

5- Burst Disk (Fall 2017): Designed a prototype for a burst disk, using CAD software. It was then 3D printed for testing and improvements. The burst disk had to work within the limits of 90-110psi using schedule 40 & aluminum foil. The project was a collaboration of 5 people.

B.Employment Experience:

1.Security: Whelan Event Services. 10/2017 - Present
