To survive in today's highly competitive environment, one has to relate himself to technological

advancement and innovations. One cannot alienate himself from being involved in these modern

developments. One has to gain knowledge of the latest technologies and innovations if one to

master any field. I am fascinated by the world of technology, which tests our knowledge and

skills. Technological developments have quickened the pace of life. My inquisitive nature

coupled with a strong desire to build a career wherein my intellectual and analytical abilities can

be utilized to the maximum, has led to my decision of pursuing a career in the ever growing

Mechanical Engineering field.

• Pramash skateboard

o January 2013

o I designed and invented unique skateboard trucks(steering assembly) which gives

experience as snowboarding and surfing. Patent has been filed and its pending.

Several prototypes has been build and tested. Before building actual prototype the

Finite Element Analysis, Stress analysis, Fatigue analysis, Frequency, and

Vibration Analysis were done in Solidworks.

• Advanced Submarine Window Design

o January 2013

The project included building prototype of advanced Submarine Window in SolidWorks.

Concept-to-Design development of the Advanced Submarine Window was done in Solid

works. Drafting/Designing of the conceptual design and CAD analysis was done during

this project

• Bicycle Steering Design Analysis

o August 2013

This project was done to create Bicycle Steering for CSUN Human Powered Vehicle

2014. The project included the analysis of the structure of steering and its component in

Solidworks. Finite Element Analysis, Stress analysis, Fatigue analysis, Thermal analysis,

Frequency, and Vibration Analysis were done in Solidworks.

• Alternative Energy Project

Designing, building and testing of EV (Electric Vehicle) charging station at CSUN was

done for Charging Electric Vehicles. This project aimed to build the electric vehicle

charging station at various locations in Cal State University Northridge. The charging

stations will be powered by sun using solar panels, and a WINSmartEVTM (Wireless

Internet Smartgrid-enabled Electric Vehicle Platform) which has been developed at

UCLA was used as the control center. This system should allow smart charging of EV’s

and intelligent schedule managemet for vehicles in parking structures providing guidance

to the parking facilities management
