Dear Hiring management,

It is with great enthusiasm that I submit my resume and cover letter and resume to you. As a student who is going to graduate soon in electrical engineering at Ryerson University, and has the motivation to work within my field, I hope my diverse skills and qualifications will make me a wonderful candidate. I have developed most of my skills, not only from what I have learned from University, but also from the activities and volunteer work I have done. Over the years within the IEEE Ryerson University Student Branch, I have learned that communication is a key skill that any engineer can and should have. Not only within that student group, with volunteer positions such as the logistics crew at Pan Am games back in 2015, I was able to apply that skill effectively with the team I was working with and always get the task done effectively. I am a hardworking, committed and passionate person who always ensures that his tasks are done in a timely manner. I can work both independently and with a team effectively, regardless of the challenge ahead. In closing, I am thrilled at the possibility of getting to know you better and I appreciate your consideration. I am very interested in the position and I also look forward to hearing from you. If you wish to contact me, you can contact me to this number: 416-***-**** or through email at Sincerely,

Arunan Bavananthan

Money Flows-Personal Project May 17-May 19, 2019

Created an online website for people to calculate the minimum monthly repayment needed to pay back a student loan during a hackathon with three other students; the hackathon was called RU Hacks

Used HTML to create the layout and inputs for the user; this was frontend focus

Used JavaScript to preform the calculations for the user to know how much they need to pay each month; this was backend focus (object oriented)

Used CSS a way to make the website look clean and appealing

This helped me learn how to use HTML, JavaScript and CSS to make a website.

Energy from the Wall-Academic Project October 2018-April 2019

Collaborated with two other fellow electrical engineering students to design, test and finally create a smart home device that could detect and collect environmental changes and then relay the information to the user’s laptop.

I focused on the wireless communication portion of the project by using two Xbee transceiver modules and the Arduino

o Xbee transceivers were used to communicate data collected with each other, by forming a mesh network of their own to use. This mesh network is started up with the XCTU software. o One transceiver was placed in one point of the room with the Arduino and sensors (which held and collected the data respectively). It sent the data to the transceiver connected on a laptop, thereby allowing a full view of the collected data on the XCTU software. Arunan Bavananthan
