Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering May 2020 PROJECTS

UCF Senior Design Project Aug. 2019 – April 2020

• Improved performance of a computer program by modifying a 3D model of a switchgear from ABB to be put in a virtual reality headset, which requires reducing the model while maintaining satisfactory surface quality

• Responsible for the preliminary model reduction in SolidWorks which includes simplifying and organizing the model by its compartments

• Listened to customer to generate requirements and follow a schedule to meet a strict project deadline IEEE SoutheastCon Student Hardware Competition 2020 Aug. 2019 – Mar. 2020

• Autonomous robots compete by stacking colored duplo blocks and pressing a set of buttons in specific orders

• Uses Arduino Mini 05 for the programming of the button pusher bot, along with photoresistors, micro servos and micro metal gearmotors from Pololu

• Lead the entire mechanical design of the button pusher robot in SolidWorks, as well as the chassis design of the block stacking robot.

• Button pusher bot put in motion simulations in SolidWorks to test physical movement feasibility

• Parts mainly fabricated with the use of 3D printed PLA or laser cut acrylic and plywood UCF Engineering Design Practice Projects Spring 2019

• Modeled a robot arm with six degrees of freedom and underwent a motion simulation using SolidWorks.

• Reference geometry was taken from a PDF file of an existing FANUC CR-7iA robot arm

• Modeled a simple needle valve for a flow study in SolidWorks to find changes in velocity and pressure inside the valve at various plug heights.

IEEE SoutheastCon Student Hardware Competition 2019 Jan. 2019 – Apr. 2019

• Autonomous robots compete by collecting colored objects and roaming a color-coded playing field

• Responsible for the design of the robot’s chassis, drive and intake system for the objects

• Entire robot modeled and assembled in SolidWorks

• Stock parts selected and machined through the UCF machine shop and laser cut in the UCF Innovation lab 2017 Student Design Competition (SDC) Oct. 2016 – Apr. 2017

• Objective was to construct a robot that could perform five different functions in a Robot Pentathlon

• Placed on a team and took part in the planning, design and construction, as well as played a significant role in the testing and troubleshooting of the robot

• Assembled the 3D model in SolidWorks using existing part models for sponsorship pamphlets AFFILIATIONS

Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Jan. 2019 – May 2020 American Society of Mechanical Engineers Oct. 2016 – Aug. 2018 TECHNICAL SKILLS

• Certified SOLIDWORKS Associate – Academic certification

• 4 years of experience in SolidWorks in various projects that include part modeling, assembly, and motion simulation

• Have prepared 3D models for 3D printing or laser cutting

• 3 years of experience in utilizing Microsoft Word to generate many project reports and Microsoft Excel to tabulate large amounts of experimental data

• Attended 2 classes for manufacturing processes, including sand/die casting, extruding, forging and 3D printing processes
