Erin Winick


Erin, a mechanical engineering major, grew her professional skills during her work at Solar Turbines, where she worked on a project using 3D printing in tool design. She chose her own specific project, researched the background by speaking with internal and external contacts, and made a testable prototype. Erin credits SWE with providing a community that helps her thrive in engineering, and she gives back by serving as chapter president and participating in a wide variety of outreach efforts. Those efforts allow her to show girls that engineering is a creative process, with so much variety in what it can accomplish.
