Major: Aerospace Engineering A, Second
April 2006, Ryan graduated from a four-year
program at Fanshawe College and now holds
a diploma for Mechanical Engineering with
a specialization in mobile equipment. During
this time, Ryan gained experience working
at three major engineering companies
Honeywell CPG, Accuride and Dyna-MIG. This
included working as a lab technician, gaining
product testing and QA experience, working
in drafting and design developing his skills,
and finally coordinating several projects
in the field of manufacturing process engineering.
He also has experience with basic robot
operations and PLC troubleshooting.
Ryan's design insights have been invaluable
in the development of Moonbuggy-01.
His role is to use this experience to provide
guidance to students for the many new and
interesting projects CuSEDS will take on
in the upcoming years.
Ryan believes that the fact that there is
so little known about space is what
makes it truly interesting. Once the
capability for human space flight develops
beyond just getting to the moon, we can
open up a whole new world of discoveries.
He believes this is what space travel is
about - fulfilling the human need to learn.
