My undergraduate years as a mechanical major had successfully provided me a solid foundation in technical areas and quantitative methods. I wish to further develop my skills and broaden my knowledge in Industrial Engineering, particularly in the advanced studies based on Operations Research & Information Systems. By applying cross-disciplinary approach in solving complex engineering problems with specific technical aspects and through analysis of managerial and economic factors, I will prepare myself to serve as an efficient industrial engineer or manager for business in the global arena.
The courses during my undergraduate studies taught me the basic engineering concepts in theory and practice. I chose an assortment of courses which …show more content…
Kiran D Mali enhanced my knowledge in experiments. Working in a laboratory environment has strengthened my concepts in engineering statistics and optimization. Evaluating of Risk & Reliability of a system, Using Analysis-of-Variance techniques to optimize the system performance has been a strong value-addition to me through this experience. I got a chance to intern with TATA Johnson Controls Ltd, Pune an auto-ancillary company which is into manufacturing seating systems. It was during this six-month internship period I gained invaluable exposure to industrial processes. I have led projects in Supply Chain Management under the guidance of General Manager-Operations. Rigorous study and efforts in this direction with the application of optimization techniques enabled me to put forward proposals using Value Analysis/Value Engineering process.. By using the data from SAP ERP and thorough analysis using spreadsheets, I have arrived at both long-term and short-term proposals to make sure maximum productivity and cost-efficiency are achieved. The implementation culminated with an overall reduction in the shift-load besides significant cost saving.
The internship experience in a way further motivated me to work on industrial processes. After graduation, I began working as a Business Analyst serving in Automotive Retail Industry (Hyundai). This industry presented a huge operations challenge in addition to the enormous complexity of the economic and market

In addition to these multiple self studied courses, I chose to take Honors Engineering Physics. However, the teacher understood that I had completed a higher level physics course and allowed me to use his class as time to research and experiment whatever I want. At the moment, I am currently applying what I have learned about electricity and circuits to a broken down golf cart and noticing how real life application of physics works. I am realizing how numbers and equations work out nicely on paper, but real life application hardly ever work
My internship experience proved to be valuable in terms of exposure and knowledge. Attending the M-1 Rail Community Advisory Council meetings were very rewarding. I was able to observe and interact with the public on their thoughts about M-1 Rail. The internship has taught me that it is important to learn how to demonstrate professionalism but courteous behavior at all times. My internship has definitely given me a better understanding of my skill, but most importantly, I’ve come to learn that I am not alone. This job has taught me that almost everybody is in my same position. Thanks to my I know that if I continue to work hard things will fall into place. Being my first position in an office atmosphere, I didn’t know exactly what to expect.
I have been interested in science and math since I was a young girl. When high school began, I had the opportunity to take PLTW Intro Engineering Design. While I enjoyed the content of the course, I was disappointed in the lack of interest and engagement many of my classmates had. Applying math and science skills to solve, or at least have a deeper understanding of everyday or technical problems, intrigues me, because I enjoy hands-on problem solving. I plan to study engineering in college, however, I realize that I need more exposure to how science, technology, engineering and math function together in the professional workplace before I determine my major of study. I expect to gain exposure and hand-on experience through the TARGET program
In this report I will describe the type of work I did in my placement at Asda, one of the largest retail stores in the UK. I will tell the objectives I set before starting my internship and how I developed my skill set throughout the whole period. I will also show examples of the work I did and how they developed relevant and practical skills that are related to my degree. I will also describe how I was able to expand my understanding of the company I was working for and the processes in the organisation. I will also apply the theoretical knowledge learned throughout MDP and my degree to the working environment at my placement.
Engineering was applied by having to have precise calculations. We had to plan out the plane before even creating it. We had to use rulers and calculators in order to measure the lengths of each side on the plane and then get the area of the plane. This honed our skills
Ever since elementary school, I have been a big fan of engineering. My inspiration came from the likes of Graham Bell and Albert Einstein with the invention of the telephone and the mass-energy equivalence equation, respectively. With the aim to join them in the wall of fame, I participated actively in my science and math classes, and clubs related to the field. As I grew older and had the fortunate chance of working at various retail stores, I began to develop an interest in business and how it worked. It was only a matter of time before this interest was strengthened and I began contemplating whether to major in engineering or business. This unfortunately left me indecisive in my choice of major for a while in college. But after a visit to a Texas A and M prospective student center, I was informed about the Industrial Distribution program and at that moment, I was certain of what I wanted to study.
Staring at engine components of a car as well as holding a smartphone with almost unbelievable thickness fascinated me in many ways indirectly leaded me into getting to know more through different sources about machines ranging from transportation to communication devices. Two years of A-level preparation, further solidified my interest in this area as I found myself very fond of learning mathematics, physics and mechanics in particular. In addition, my curiosity in the operation and dynamics of objects naturally influences my choice of degree, leading me towards Engineering as it is a discipline which satisfy my own interest and most probably bring out the best of me.
My education and work experience have been great preparation for a career in this field. Engineering, by nature, requires strong analytical and problem solving skills. Even outside the classroom, I have learned to look at a situation and break it down systematically. Sometimes when a direct solution is not possible, an optimal alternative or repurpose is appropriate. For example, I worked
Throughout high school, I challenged myself by taking Advanced Placement math and science courses, such as chemistry, physics, and calculus. These classes jump started my interest in pursuing a STEM related career. I also had the opportunity to take an Introduction into Engineering and an Engineering
I have always been interested in engineering ever since I was a little kid in science club. How people build such great feats of science such as rockets cars buildings or even a simple bridge has always been a major question to me. Searching for answers, I joined honors physics in my junior year in high school. We started learning about forces and motion and eventually the largest grade we would receive throughout the entire year, the model bridge.
The “ENGR (Engineering)” sequence was one which showed the best picture of potential paths one would take in an engineering career. ENGR 100 is a class that requires students to utilize a Computer Aided Design software package for assignments and exams throughout the term. This class taught me how to use different features in such software packages to create 3D models of typical
I have successfully earned a master’s degree in Industrial Engineering from SUNY, University at Buffalo in September 2013, which opened avenues for me and led me to my first full-time job. Since graduation, I’ve been on a ceaseless path of learning from working as a Quality Engineer for a small manufacturing company called HDM Hydraulics to where I am now as an R&D Quality Engineer for New Product Development at Medtronic. My academic pursuits continued even after starting
The boundless possibilities and prompt outcomes are what I find most energizing and alluring about Industrial Engineering. I have a great interest towards the industrial environment and this is the reason I am looking to pursue Master’s in Industrial Engineering. The factor in the recent times is that there have been huge changes in Design Engineering and Global Industrialization making the position of an Industrial Engineer a very essential one. Being part of this rapidly flourishing community has been my ultimate desire.
For this experience I obtained through my final year project, in which I need to design and manufacture a simple device. I may need to use some tools I had never use before such as the electric drill. That project is basically about wave energy converter. This experience broaden my knowledge about engineering as general and allows me to learn things that I cannot obtained in class such as real engineering design experience where I need to planed, drew and even manufactured my own design with the help of workshop during my final year project, while in this internship I experience firsthand how to manage and checking an ongoing project in such a huge scale and also how a team should work in big group compared to a small group of 4-5 people in class.
