Hi I’m Zachariah Severn, and I am an undergraduate student studying manufacturing engineering technology. I Began my project of because there were several fields I would be exploring through it that I have wanted mastery over for years. I was particularly passionate about the ability to merge education and personal exploration, ultimately gaining a hands-on skill I could take away with me. Following graduation, I want to find a design position in a manufacturing company where I can express creativity and produce functional products. This independent study has furthered me in my goal, by allowing personal exploration with real-world technology.
