I am a recent graduate from Tennessee Technological University, and I am seeking full-time work as an Energy Engineer. I have pursued engineering as it is a perfect blend of scientific theory and economic pragmatism. My passion has always been in energy, particularly its creation and transformation.
In my educational experience, I had the opportunity to travel to Germany to study as a guest masters student. I studied under guest professors from the Forschungszentrum Jülich ( Jülich Research Center). I studied photovoltaics, hydro power, solar concentrated heat, and materials of energy systems directly from those who were pioneering the field.
As a sophomore, I was the youngest student to join the Industrial Assessment Center. My work with I.A.C. has given me experience with multiple areas of a manufacturing plant including compressed air systems, furnace insulation, heat recovery, boilers, chillers, pumps, variable speed motor retrofits, cooling towers, exhaust systems, capacitor banks, nitrogen consumption, HVAC cooling, lighting retrofits and occupancy sensors, and programmable logic control systems. The majority of my proposed recommendations were implemented by the facilities we visited. Continued correspondence found that those facilities who implemented my recommendations averaged over $10,000 in annual savings and frequently had a payback period of less than two years.
Having graduated, I am pursuing opportunities which allow me to use this skill set I have developed. I am looking for a field that resides on the front wave of the energy industry, that focuses on energy efficiency, energy services, facility management, plant engineering, environmental compliance and alternative energy technologies.
