Hi all, my name is Mikhail (pronounced Me – ha – eel), and I’m excited to be part of your TA team this semester! I’m a sophomore mechanical engineering student in SEAS, where I spend most of my time on Formula SAE, which is a student team, open to the entire Columbia community, that designs and builds a small single-seater racecar every year. I focus on mechanical design and manufacturing, and this year I’m in charge of the chassis (frame). My interest in mechanical engineering stemmed from my involvement in FIRST robotics, and in high school I was on a FRC team, where I learned a lot about mechanical design and simple manufacturing techniques. Now, I’m experienced in all stages of small scale manufacture, from 3D models through 3D printing and to CNC mills and lathes, and I look forward to sharing my expertise with you.
