Featured MakerSpace TA: Varun Mehra

Varun Mehra studied Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Aeronautical Engineering (Class of 2017). He was the President of Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers (Jan 2016 – May 2017) and a member of the Theta Tau Engineering Society (Spring 2017).  At the MakerSpace, he has facilitated events such as Resume building and Networking workshops.

In the past Varun has worked on senior design project, which used the electrodynamic shaker, whose test video was featured earlier in the blog. Apart from this, has also assisted many other project teams with his skills in SolidWorks.

Varun is an excellent technician and could be found in the MakerSpace, fixing broken machines. He is one of the few TAs who actually know how to use, operate, and overhaul the water jet cutter present within the heavy machines area in the lower level of the MakerSpace.
