As an intern at Precision, I took on the role of Assistant Project Manager. I assisted with MEPS Design, and utilized AutoCAD in drafting of all designs. Most projects consisted of plumbing design, including extensive work on backflow prevention. I interpreted job site sketches and pictures, surveys and tax maps to prepare site plans and layouts. I prepared DEP/DOB submittals for all jobs I worked on. I prepared and edited proposals, invoices, as well as providing administrative support to the lead engineer and others in the office.
My time spent at N.E.A. Construction was some of the most valuable experienced I’ve gained. Here I managed a seven member team working on various commercial and residential projects throughout New York. I organizated and coordinated the hardware and materials at each site as well as maintained a daily punch list of completed tasks and delegated tasks.
This taught me things that aren’t learned in school, such as job site structure, time management and coordination of skills.
For this design project, I designed the Air System and the Hydronic System for a building on campus, Anna Rubin Hall. This included the calculation of R-Values for varying sections of the building, and calculating the total building and individual room heat loss with infiltration and ventilation. Once this section of the project was completed I moved on to the cooling loads, both total building and individual . Being that the class is only a semester long, all students were assigned different times of the day for which they would calculate their cooling loads, I was assigned 5pm. When all of this was completed, the Hydronic system and Air system were designed.
This project was divided into several parts. The first was to establishes design conditions for a basic turbojet engine. The second looks at the turbofans conditions and parameters. The last part evaluates both engines – turbojet and turbofan – at takeoff.
These projects demonstrate what is taken into consideration when designing Co-Generation energy facilities. Below are descriptions of what both projects entailed, including heat exchanger sizing, exergy analysis, and producing system layouts utilizing AutoCAD.
Project 1. 40 MW Steam CoGen Plant; prepare heat/mass balances for closed F.W.H.’s, all subsystem sizing, as well prepare an exergy (2nd Law) analysis and flow diagram for the entire system.
Project 2. 669 kW Diesel CoGen Plant; prepare system layout (floor and elevation plans) and detailed mechanical interconnection to existing CHP and fuel supply, address heat exchangers, emergency cooling, exhaust, ventilation, noise criteria, etc.
NYIT Department of Engineering and Computing Sciences - Environmental Technology
As an assistant at NYIT’s Department of Engineering, I Assisted department chairperson with administrative needs. This taught me how larger organizations work and the procedure that is needed to get things done properly.
I have extensive experience with AutoCAD, through real world MEP & Architectural applications. I have experience with AutoCAD 2004, 2011 and currently utilize AutoCAD MEP 2012, as well as other programs from the Building Design Suite. I’m also familiar with Revit MEP, CATIA V5, SolidWorks, and Inventor.
As finalists, our mission was to design a sustainable pavilion on the deck of the U.S.S. Intrepid to shelter aircraft and restoration personnel, as well as providing a space fore visitors to learn about the restoration process. As a Mechanical Engineering Team member, my specific tasks included design of fire suppression system, assisting in solar PV and solar thermal system designs, and presentation creation. Here you can see a rendering of the building that we created.
The Solar Decathlon is a competition held by the US Department of Energy for schools to design, build, and operate the most attractive and energy-efficient solar-powered house. For the NYIT team, my specific tasks included assisting in design of mechanical systems, interconnections, and plumbing systems.
American Society of Mechanical Engineers, NYIT Chapter.
As Vice President, I helped to reestablish the ASME Chapter at NYIT. Which fosters the students and advances student interests in specific areas of engineering. Tasks included meeting organization, presenting topics and subjects at meetings, organizing public school events, such as the Engineering Forum. Other tasks included professionally maintaining an online social networks for the club and creating the club logo seen here utilizing Photoshop, to give the club a presence on campus.
EWB-NYIT provides an atmosphere to participate in EWB projects, which design and implement sustainable engineering projects. As Treasurer, I managed all club finances and fundraising, production of bi-annual budget, and regularly attending budget meetings. Other tasks included creating the club logo seen here utilizing Photoshop, to give the club a professional presence.
