Students and Mentor in Lab at MIT for 2.009 Product Design and Processes

My role

For the past several years, I have served as an industry mentor to the class.  I help the students learn the product design process from ideation to realization of the product by participating in lab meetings and working with them in the machine shop.  I enjoy helping the students make remarkable product under tight timelines.
