This technical role requires skills that I acquired over time. My day-to-day work touches on mechanics, electronics, software and management: it's a multifaceted role, and I'm learning more every day.
My work mainly deals with systems modeling in SysML (Systems Modeling Language). Systems modeling takes the functions created by system architects and formats their consistencies (and inconsistencies) on the computer. Basically, my job is to express and validate the work of system architects. I need to be able to manage our modeling software and also the overall performance of the model.
The challenges that come up in my job are exactly the kind that a young engineer like me, fresh out of school, hopes to take on. My office environment is friendly and supportive, too."
