Robert Baca

Summary

I acquired an internship at a wind energy company in which I received real-world experience under the guidance of a knowledgeable senior engineer. I learned valuable aspects of being a successful engineer from my employer. Along with working, I studied mechanical engineering at West Texas A&M University as it best complimented my proficiency in math and enjoyment of design. I worked with both individuals and teams to design and implement projects into functioning systems. During my free time, I designed, built, and sold tile/wood items.

School Experience

Senior Design Course: Four Wheeler Conversion Kit

Designed and implemented a hydrogen conversion kit for a 1-cylinder, 4-stroke, carbureted four wheeler. Majority of the theory was based on combustion which required experimental performance data and outside research.

Thermo-Fluid Design Course: Heat Exchanger System

Appointed group leader for my senior thermo-fluid design which consisted of building a system to test the performance of a tube-fin heat exchanger using water with and without nanoparticles. My professor expressed I had the dedication, knowledge, and leadership skills to guide the class.

Machine Design Course: Rotating Target System

Consisted of designing and constructing a rotating target system for the Canyon Police Department. A linear electric actuator allowed the target to rotate and timed relays controlled the time duration the target faced the shooter.

Organizations

American Society of Mechanical Engineers, Kappa Alpha Order

Interests and Achievements

Attributes

I have always had an interest in how things work. Over the years, I have excelled in Math, Science, and English more so than any other subjects. I enjoy undertaking difficult projects to learn more and further improve myself. I tutored both college and high school students in math and science throughout my time in college.

I am familiar and experienced with drafting/mathematical software such as AutoCAD, ANSYS, and MATLAB. I am excellent with hands-on and detailed oriented tasks. Honesty and integrity are very important to me. I work well with groups and have experience in completing projects within a specified time frame.

Volunteer Experience

Every Tuesday, during my time in school, I volunteered my time and effort to Evelyn Rivers’ Christmas Charity for kids who don’t receive gifts during Christmas. Also, I helped plan and execute a weight-lifting competition to raise money for the MDA.
