I started working as a newspaper delivery boy, then a dishwasher, then a mechanic, and now an engineer!
SPICE Instrument for the Solar Orbiter
I design parts to be used on satellites or for the ground testing of these parts.
My Typical Day
I design parts based on what other groups (optical, thermal) need to either perform a task or to test a component/instrument
What I'd do with the money
Try to start a Robotics team!
I was inspired to become an engineer by FIRST Robotics (http://www.usfirst.org/) and I would really like to start one of these teams around here so I can give others the same experience I had!
