I am currently pursuing masters at MTU in Mechanical Engineering with the specialization in design, analysis and testing areas. At MTU, I was enrolled with the following courses such as Finite element methods, Design for reliability, Continuum mechanics, Vehicle Dynamics, Design of Experiments, Lean manufacturing, Advanced production planning, and Machine Learning. Now, I am looking forward to learning more about open source hardware or 3D printing where I could implement all my skills from the design and analysis field and learn more opportunities.

Professional Experience

Recently, I have finished my internships with Altair and Ansys. I was working with Altair as a CAE Validation Intern last summer, where I was working with HyperWorks products such as HperMesh, HyperView, HyperGraph and performed testing of newly added features. I also created automated tests with Tcl/Tk language to maintain the quality of software on windows and Linux platforms.

After my experience with Altair, I started working with Ansys as an R & D Verification Intern. I had the opportunity to work with software called Discovery (Simulation software) and SpaceClaim (CAD software). Along with it, we interns had the opportunity to work on a UI automation project, where we used an open source library called to build in house tools which will help to validate all present UI from software. My project work involved working with different features from CAD, simulation and additive manufacturing areas.

Before I started with my master's degree, I was working as Design engineer with Sigma Electric manufacturing Ltd. I was responsible for designing products and required a feed system to manufacture industrial castings. My responsibilities were to understand material specification and melting temperature and design feed system to avoid issues such as porosity, blisters etc.
