My name is Miles Hyman. I am a sophomore pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering at Harvard and I believe I am a strong candidate for your freelance job.
As a second year student at Harvard I have successfully managed a rigorous course load in math, science and engineering designed to enhance my skills in science and technology. Over the past two years I have successfully completed courses in Computer Science, Multivariable Calculus, Linear Algebra, Computer-Aided Machine Design, Mechanical Systems, Physics, Solid Mechanics and Electronics.. Through my academic projects I have completed a variety of challenging assignments related to science and engineering. In my Computer Aided design course I developed skills in 3-D design, rapid prototyping, manufacturing and studied machine loading. This culminated in a final project in which I and two other teammates designed an all terrain rover to maneuver a course and overcome several obstacles. Our team designed the entire rover in Solidworks and calculated the torque, motor speeds and gear ratio required to make it through the track. We then used our model to manufacture and assemble the components while fulfilling the design requirements, budget and deadlines.
I have also participated in projects which have helped me develop skills in computer analysis and mathematical models. In my Physical Sciences classes my partners and I experimentally calculated drag coefficient on a baseball. We developed code using Matlab to interpret our data and predicted the flight path of a baseball being launched from a pitching machine. In addition we modeled more complex systems such as light refraction, magnetic fields, and Boltzmann’s distributions.
In addition to my engineering skills I have also worked extensively with photo editing; creating many of the flyers and publications for organizations I am involved with.
Throughout all my experiences I have utilized my dedication to efficient and creative problem solving and my ability to prioritize and effectively manage multiple projects in a timely manner. I look forward to applying the academic knowledge I have gained to your project as I continue to refine my capabilities. I am reliable, hard working, and available to work on short notice. Please feel free to contact me at your convenience. Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
