Capstone & IED-PD1
I am a senior project engineer for the Design Lab's Capstone program and I am the coordinator for the Design Lab's Introduction to Engineering with Professional Development 1 program (ENGR2050).
I have office hours every day! All office hours are by appointment please, so that you can be sure I'll be there for you!
My goal is to help students make the transition from academics to either graduate school or to the work world by helping them connect their classroom learning to solve real world problems. Students to Engineers!
To my students - I will do my best to:
respect your time by making sure class ends at the scheduled time
share my experiences in the working world to help connect your theoretical skills to problem solving
help you understand the course syllabus so that you can better plan your time throughout the entire semester
help you participate in and out of class
encourage you to develop your technical and professional skills
understand that you are balancing time for my course with other courses and a life beyond academics
encourage you to keep your work up to date so that you reduce the end of semester crunch
be respectful of your cultural and religion and to graciously accept your help when I don't understand
help you learn to productively work within a group setting even in that is not your personal preference
help you deliver value to your project
help you develop the skills to make the transition from being an undergraduate to graduate school or work
Please let me know if I need to do more, less or different! I am here to help you!
I am available on a limited basis to provide support for
LabVIEW on an appointment basis.
Cypress PSoC Support
I am available on a limited basis to provide support for the Cypress PSoC family of products, specifically the PSoC4 and PsoC5 families. These powerful devices are used in industry for various embedded control features. They feature configurable I/O such that analog or digital functions can be assigned to almost any of the device's pins providing great flexibility!
We have a small supply of these on hand for IED students to sign out for their team project. Please see the TA in the shop to obtain one.
In addition to my teaching duties I am also a professional photographer! You
can see my work at: MJAndersonPhotography.com
I do individual portraits, head shots for publicity / PR, catalog & promotional
photos, family portraits, bar and bat mitzvahs, sports, and weddings!
