Biography[edit]

My name is Morgan O'Brien and I am currently an undergraduate student at Michigan Technological University. I am majoring in the field of Mechanical Engineering with a Minor in Alternative Energy. I have a goal to enter into the field of solar specifically Photovoltaic. My undergrad classes have prepared me for a career in renewables as well as my work experience in 3D modeling and FEA software. A lot of my experience has come from working at the Keweenaw Research Center located in Calumet Michigan. The past two years I have been mentored by engineers with a century worth of experience between them all.


Goals[edit]

My goal is to complete my undergraduate in the Fall of 2019 and start a career in renewable energy. There is a huge need for sustainable practices and new forms of energy for the earth to survive the changes that have already started. I believe it is in my best interest to focus on the advancement of these new energy forms such as PV cell efficiencies and micro grid technologies. With determination I believe that I will be able to achieve a knowledge and understanding of renewable energy to be able to create a business that has my ideals and passion in achieving a goal of a sustainable future.
