Making and working on personal engineering projects has been a massive part of my life and education for the better part of a decade.
In order to help you in vetting my application, I have compiled a list of five different projects (in chronological order) that I believe accurately represent different, unique aspects of what I make. For each project I have written a single page overview document that includes a concise one paragraph overview of the accomplishment as well as two other sections that each provide a more detailed overview of a skill I learned. This is by no means an exhaustive list of things I have made, however I do think, together, they accurately reflect my depth and breadth of knowledge.
- Automotive Predictive Maintenance
- 2.4 GHz Radar System
- WiFi Tracking System
- Real-time Linux Quadcopter
- Vulkan 3D Renderer
Despite this being outside of the application, if at all possible, please take the time to glance over these documents. I believe that the experience I gained working on these projects truly sets me apart as a candidate.
If you would like to see a larger (but still not complete) list of projects and read my long, rambling descriptions of them feel free to visit the projects page of my website here.
