Work History
06/2012 to 04/2013 FEA Engineer Cnh Industrial | Mount Vernon, IN,
  • Conducted finite element modeling to analyze steering columns for structural strength.
  • Assisted drafters in developing the structural design of products using drafting tools or computer-assisted design (CAD) or drafting equipment and software.
  • Used lean manufacturing principles to develop, evaluate and improve manufacturing methods.
  • Translated the actual problem to Finite Element Analysis (FEA) model, interpreted analysis results and selected the best solution.
  • Elucidated the analysis results and converted them to design suggestions and with lab testing results.
  • Handled the delegation of FEA support during deficiencies of local resources.
  • Investigated opportunities to limit the required testing and reduced development costs with FEA analysis.

11/2011 to 01/2012 Mechanical Engineering Intern Olsson Associates | Fort Worth, TX,
  • Worked on the high speed single face paper corrugation machine and vertical type single face paper corrugation machine under the supervision of the company authorities.
  • Conducted a research using NASTRAN/PATRAN to observe the behavior of stresses for different materials including composite combinations.    
  • Was part of the Quality team where we inspected the final product against our quality standards and filtered the rejected pieces to the shop floor for rework.

05/2015 to 11/2015 Engineering Management Intern Visa Inc | City, STATE,
  • Collaborated with a team consisting of 8 Onsite/Offshore in the development of the software project, 'Data Quality'.
  • Developed project schedules from 'Requirement Analysis' phase to 'Deployment' phase.
  • Worked on an Agile Environment and participated in daily Scrum meetings. 
  • Efficiently performed troubleshooting on all scheduling issues.
  • Created documentation to migrate the 'Microstrategy' objects from Development to QA, and QA to Deployment environment.
  • Monitored project lifecycle and events and identified milestones.
  • Conducted Cost analysis study on projects and determining appropriate. business contracts with clients and contractors. 

Expected in Dec - 15' to to Master of Science | Engineering Management University of Dayton, Dayton, OH GPA:
  • 3.3 GPA
  • Coursework in Operations Research, Project Management, System Simulation, Production Engineering, Systems Engineering, Reliability Engineering. 
  • Senior Capstone Project:
  • Addressed the issue of Congestion at a cafeteria during its peak hours 
  • Identified the bottleneck areas and simulated a real-time scenario using with the help of SIMIO Developed Probability Distributions of the raw data by using Stat::Fit.
  • Conducted observation and analysis of personnel and work procedures to determine Time-and-Motion requirements and Line Balancing of job duties 
  • Provided recommendations with the help of an improvised model which increased the utilization by 30%. 
Expected in Jun - 13' to to Bachelors of Engineering | Mechanical Engineering Visweshwaraiah Technological University, Bangalore, India GPA:
  • 3.5 GPA
  • Member of Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE): Lead a team to build a 600CC formula one car to participate in an international competition organized by SAE.
  • Coursework in Drafting, Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM), Finite Element Analysis (FEA), ANSYS, CAED Modelling and Analysis, Catia V5, Machine Design 1, Advanced Machine Design, Basic Thermodynamics, Advanced Thermodynamics, Fluid Mechanics, Mechanics and Kinematics of Machines.
  • Academic Projects:

      1. Thermal and structural Analysis of a Piston:  Conducted thermal and         structural analysis on piston of an army truck. After the design process, it was imported to ANSYS where certain parameters were set and values of each result was tabulated to provide efficient feedback.

      2.  Helmholtz Resonator to determine its effectiveness in minimizing induction noise: Modeled a simple Helmholtz Resonator using CATIA and meshed by using HYPERMESH. The transmission loss achieved due to the inclusion of this resonator in an induction system was determined using the Acoustic Analysis Function in ANSYS.  Pre processing data and conditions were applied for FEA analysis by using PATRAN.

      3.  Facilities planning and design:  Redesigning the material handling system & facility for warehouse operations with constraints. Performed the ABC inventory analysis on the products and place them according to their size, movement and demand. Design is developed to achieve smooth material flow, reduced material handling and increased throughput.

  • CERTIFIED in Systems Engineering.
  • Trained in ANSYS, CATIA and HYPERMESH.
  • Member of Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and ASME.
  • Academic International PeerOrientation Leader (IPOL) for graduate students August 2014 – November 2014.
