Benjamin Hubbard

Mechanical Engineer in love with controls, sound, woodworking, and helping the world keep spinning (and artisanal waffles).

Benjamin Hubbard is a Mechanical Engineering student at Michigan Technological University. He has pursued interests in Electrical Engineering through an EE minor and electronics hobby projects, and an interest in the Spanish language and cultures through a Spanish minor, as well as travelling to Costa Rica, Peru, and Chile through programs during his education. Having completed a Bachelor's of Science in Mechanical Engineering, Ben is currently pursuing graduate research in Open Source Hardware/Software with J.M.Pearce as a member of MTU's Michigan Open Sustainability Technology Group. He is was introduced to the world of Open Source Hardware and Software through MSE4777 at Michigan Tech. During this experience he constructed an AthenaII Delta-style 3D printer, developed skills using open source CAD software including OpenSCAD, FreeCAD, and Blender. Ben's work focuses on digitally replicable scientific instruments such as Laboratory Mass Balances and extensible, flexible firmware to back such equipment.
