A little about yourself – name, geography, anything you’re comfortable with.
I’m currently an aerospace engineering student at the University of Colorado Boulder, graduating in May 2021. I joined CU’s Engineers without Borders team two years ago, and I’m now the design team lead for our project in Mulas, Puerto Rico.
What skills and perspectives can you share with this community that are appropriate and could add value?
As one of the project managers that started this Puerto Rico team, I’m hoping to share knowledge about starting small projects and finding a strong balance between team dynamics, supporting the community, and actual project work. I also hope to be an example of how any student, regardless of skill set, can make a difference on a community project like ours!
What would you like to learn most from this community?
As an aerospace engineer, I’m hoping to learn directly from engineering professionals like @joshua on the best practices for designing small scale water systems. Our team will run into a number of challenges, and we would love the support of anyone interested to helping our team learn and grow!
What is the next step on your professional journey? Learning more? Doing more? Please share with us!
Systems engineering, team based project dynamics, and teaching are all important for any engineer. I hope to apply the broad skills I’ve learned from CECorp into my professional work in the aerospace industry, and also help train the next batch of students with a global engineering mindset.
