I wanted to see what life could be like living in the Big Apple, and I was excited for new experiences and a fun life transition. However, after living in NYC for only a few months, I quickly realized how naive I was about adapting to city life and learned a lot of things that I wish I had known before making the big move.
Please note that the interview has not been edited nor does it represent a "perfect" transcript.
It does, however, provide insight into the interview process. The interview was conducted at 3: Professor has been my professor for two classes. I have also spoken with him privately regarding attending graduate school and areas of study.
Start of Interview Interviewer: Particularly in regard to design and development, what are your duties as a mechanical engineer? Do you mean before I took this position or in this position. In my position I have now, about half of my time is devoted to counseling and registration and other issues like that.
About thirty to forty percent of my time is involved with teaching, doing preparation, helping out in the labs, and helping students. About five to ten percent of my time is spent being involved in academic committees and working with administrative items. Do you do any research?
Most of my research is education-related. What types of research did you do before when you were an associate professor? I worked primarily with acoustics and noise control, with my emphasis being in active noise and vibration control. I worked with the aircraft fuselage and all of the vibrations and noises created in there and limiting their effects on the cockpit.
Of course, automobile engines are also very noisy being so close to the driver. I also worked with compressors.
I worked with really small compressors to really big compressors. I worked on small refrigeration units using passive and active control techniques. I also worked with huge engine compressors of up to sixty horsepower.
I also worked with reciprocating compressors, screw compressors, scroll compressors, and rotary compressors. Most of your current grants are education-related though, correct?
I feel that I need to teach with this job, because I need to have that link to the curriculum and the students.
How much contact have you had with industry? I had quite a bit of contact when I worked as an associate professor. I spent quite a bit of time at the Herrick Labs. I worked with a couple of United Technologies companies, Sikorkey Helicopter and Carrier Corporation, who does refrigeration, Aspera, which is an Italian company that makes compressors, General Motors, and some governmental work.
Did you ever work out in industry before you became a professor? I also received an educational grant about a year ago to work the summer at Boeing. I worked in Philadelphia with the rotorcraft division. They make all levels of military aircraft. They make the Belle Boeingwhich is a lot like a V It takes off like a helicopter, straight up, and then the wings turn over and it flies.
They also work on CH, which is a very old helicopter, in a support mode. They also do some work with the commanche attack helicopter. As you can tell, they work at a lot of different levels in the design.
