|Current Mechanical Engineering Graduate student at Michigan Technological University. I like to learn new things everyday. Hobbies include sketching portraits, singing, watching TEDTalks.|
Master's student at Michigan Technological University, majoring in Mechanical Engineering and minoring in Design & Manufacturing.
Currently (January 2020 - August 2020), I'm working as a Manufacturing co-op at Whirlpool Corporation, Amana Operations. This role has been great so far with lots of training in Quality principles like Kaizen, 3G/5G, 5S, etc. Its been an amazing experience working with senior engineers and assembly line operators.
I've been a Quality Engineering Intern at Indian Railways for 2 months in summer of 2018 where I explored the diesel locomotives at the Diesel Loco Shed, Pune(IND). I got the opportunity of studying the engine failure reports and after drawing Pareto charts and fishbone diagrams, I suggested changes to the design of the engine head to mitigate the overheating issue in 70% of the cases.
I also worked at my uncle's workshop in summers of 2016 & 2017. This workshop had a CNC Router machine which was used to make decorative designs on MDF and acryclic sheets for architects and other clients. Making designs in AutoCAD or CoralDRAW, programming a 3-axes machine in MasterCAM for tool path generation, negotiating with customers, etc. were some of the skills I got from this internship.
I was a member of the Student Formula SAE Enterprise - Team VAMOS Autocross - for 3 years during my Bachelor's where I worked at different positions on the design team. My primary role was to design and manufacture the chassis and the bodyworks while also managing the car ergonomics. I first of all tried to lower the Center of Gravity by placing the engine a bit lower than what had been tried before. I was successful in bringing down the chassis weight to 23 kgs during my time at VAMOS by changing the tubing material from AISI 1018 to 4130 Chromoly Steel which maintained the rigidity for reduced weight. This helped in eliminating some frame members and thus helped make the space frame lighter. I also got the chance to represent my university as well as my country in an FSAE event in Japan. Here, I got to interact with many international students and some of the best FSAE teams. Over the 3 year journey, the team had managed to get awarded in CAE & Acceleration events.
