I have seen a number of posts recently with different people saying that they were mechanical engineers (students or those working). So I wanted to start a new thread to see how many meche's there are here at MR. Also, I am curious to what you do and why you love apple products. So I'll start it off! Currently, I am a graduate student in mechanical and aerospace engineering at UVA. I am writing my thesis right now and will be done in November. My research is on morphing structures, epecially for AUVs (autonomous underwater vehicles). I am currently looking for a job when I graduate, hopefully doing similar work in aerospace or automotive industry. I love my ibook and ipod photo. I enjoy using my ibook for presentations and word documents (especially my huge thesis). I even run some matlab code from time to time at home when I dont feel like going to the lab! I have drooled over apple products since i was in college (started in '99). Currently, Im drooling over a new imac lol. I look forward to other posts!
