Introduction

Hi, my name is Winston Wijangco. I’m a young engineer, born and raised in Chicagoland. In high school I had a talent for the sciences as well as drafting and a love for all things high-tech and automotive, in addition to art and design. So naturally I eventually found myself in college seeking a degree in mechanical engineering. Through the many years I spent working towards this degree I obtained and honed the analytical and problem solving skills necessary for all engineers to be successful and to contribute to their company’s goals. In particular I utilized these skills during my time studying interdisciplinary product development, a special senior design course I took before graduating from the University of Illinois at Chicago. In this special setting I was taught how to use the skills I had acquired as an engineer and apply them towards product development and innovation alongside other students that had been groomed in other fields such as industrial design and business administration.

Business Card

Teamwork played an important part in the success of that IPD project. Thoughout my college career I did my best to participate in the collegiate enviroment as much as possible. Through the years I joined several chapters of ASME and SAE as well as serving as an officer in the Engineering Club at the College of DuPage and also serving my community as President of the South Apartment Council at UIC. My time as a student leader hit its climax when I became a Resident Assistant at UIC. Through these challenges I was able to build my skills as a leader and truly understand the value of teamwork in the workplace as well as in life. Because of all of these wonderful experiences my goal now is to find myself as a design engineer at a great company, doing product development alongside a team of diverse professionals and helping to lead that team to a successful future. If you are reading this I hope that this portfolio proves that I am capable of this goal.

Drafting

My passion for computer-aided drafting and design began in high school starting with making simple architectural drawings in AutoCAD to learning how to hand draw gears and machinery in mechanical drafting and eventually evolving to designing one-off complex moving products in Pro Engineer. CADD has been one of the cornerstones of my education and continues to be one of my specialties. Between 2006 - 2007 I recieved awards for mechanical drafting from the Illinois Drafting Educators Association (IDEA) and the University of Illinois’ Worldwide Youth in Science and Engineering (WYSE) competitions. My highest proficieny is in PTC’s CAD program, Pro Engineer where I have designed several objects for previous employers that have go one to be rapid prototyped. I am also familiar with other cartesian based drafting programs such as: Solid Edge, SolidWorks and of course AutoCAD.

Project II - Compass Design

-- Second major 3D CAD project -- Project called for a re-design of a pre-existing product and improving that design -- My design is a modified HelixŠ Brand Drawing compass -- In the original design (see below) the compass’ legs are made up of two separate pieces, including a blue section that pivots and allows for a more unique range of motion -- My design removes this rarely used feature and redesigns the legs as a single stronger piece made of aluminum -- Upper blue handle section that holds the two legs I chose to keep as a plastic polymer material to save weight and keep costs down -- Stress analysis run through ABAQUS and ANSYS, the high stress areas were in the blue/polymer piece as expected as well as the lead needle -- As it would take considerable force to cause failure in these sections, the design is considered a success

Interdisciplinary Product Development

The Interdisciplinary Product Development course at UIC is a special senior-level final course where Cross-functional teams research and develop new product concepts with a focus on the identification of technologically appropriate product design problems.These teams consist of students originating from different majors including engineering, graphic design, industrial design and masters in business administration. Each class section is given a corporate sponsor from whom a problem statement is assigned and which the team must provide a new product solution by the end of the school year. For my class session we were given the opportunity of working for Cricket Communications, famous for their low-cost Cricket Wireless Mobile Carrier Brand. Teams were also required to brand themselves names to differentiate teams more clearly and create a more competitive and corporate nature. Our team was called: Scorpion Solutions. Over the course of two semesters class would meet once a week to learn more about the aspects of modern product development and innovation such as ideation, conceptualization, prototyping, marketing and more. These lectures would better provide the different teams the knowledge they would need to satisfy the problems offered by our corporate sponsor Cricket. Through the next few months teams would slowly explore the challenges given and develop multiple ways to satisfy the needs of Cricket. Slowly ideas and concepts would dwindle down and evolve especially after the many presentations given to Cricket on each team’s progress. Eventually in April all teams make their final presentation, exhibiting their final product after countless prototypes. It is then at the discretion of the sponsor to choose which intellectual properties would move on for further development at the corporate level.

Through the year our team developed many ideas and scribed them in “Concept Cards.” By the end of the project we had gone through fifteen plus cards before settling on one idea to satisfy Cricket’s problem statement.

By the end, Scorpion Solutions was meeting several times a week including online to finalize our solutions and final presentation. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY All the content provided describes a project and concept that was developed by University of Illinois at Chicago students for Cricket Wireless. Through extensive market research, customer, non-customer, and employee interviews, the team has developed a concept that presents a strong opportunity for Cricket to capture additional value in their market. The concept is

The marketing plan will provide an in depth description of the and benefits. A brief analysis of Cricket Wireless as a company along with an analysis of the competitive environment will also be presented to describe the market opportunity and the feasibility of the In addition, the plan will discuss how the concept will be consistent with Cricket’s current brand image, but also present an opportunity to adapt the brand of Cricket Wireless to fit within their current structure and take advantage of available market opportunities into the future to ensure continued growth for the company. Additionally, a slide deck presentation has been provided that outlines the key points and process of . The slides cover the problem statement, our solution, in-depth description of the design, key marketing metrics, and important information regarding the implementation of the concept. This result of this concept will be an increase in brand awareness and customer loyalty for Cricket Wireless that will drive three key metrics that we have determined will ultimately measure the success of this service; an increase in customer retention rates, increase in market share, and an overall decrease in promotional expenditures relative to annual company revenue.

Doing my part for the final solution by programming many lines of code.

To legitimize our problem solutions even more, MBAs for each team created executive summaries.

Wilo USA

After graduating from UIC my first job as an engineer was at Wilo USA LLC, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of pumps and pump systems for heating, ventilation and air conditioning as well as water supply, sewage disposal and wastewater treatment. As a member of the Building Services Group I joined the Product Development Dept. as Product Engineer. My responsibilities in this position included: -- Creation & maintenance of bills of material of product lines such as the IL and the NL Pumps -- Researched competitor products and also created spreadsheets for production and marketing purposes -- Assisted in the creation of many submittals for brand new yet-to-be released products as well as the creation of training documents for new employees -- Designed custom prototype products using CAD, many of which went on to prototyping and fabrication

Wilo - IL - Inline Centrifugal Circulator

Though my time at Wilo USA was relatively short, I very much enjoyed my time working there. I worked alongside many great people who taught me much and who I enjoyed being around. Wilo was the place where I really began to use the skills I had acquired in school and completely validated my decision to become a mechanical engineer.

Leadership

My time in college changed me in more ways than just academically. When I started at UIC I became heavily involved in student affairs through the local community. I joined the South Apartment Council initially to meet new people and to also get involved in my community. I had no idea that this would be the first step in a life changing series of events. As President of SAC our goal was to assist the UIC Campus Housing Department in building our community and creating a safe, fun environment that encouraged academics and made the buildings simply more than any usual university dormitory. Through my two years as a member of SAC I led the group and started many initiatives for community service and organized many programs and events for our residents to help them learn and grow but also for them to have fun. After two years of giving back to my studentcommunity I wanted to continue my work but in a greater capacity. So in my final year at UIC I was hired as a Resident Assistant for Campus Housing. It was in this position that my leadership qualities truly flourished. I became responisble for a community of over 500 residents and served as their resource to the university. I continued to do the work I had started with SAC but on a larger scale. I also attended statewide conferences to increase my knowledge of teamwork and leadership, and also to sure what I had learned with other student affairs professionals. Much of my success can be attributed to the great staff I was blessed to work with. As a small team of student leaders, we worked closely to build our community, keep them safe and ensure that they succeeded in school. After a year our staff became somewhat of a family, an outcome that my supervisor placed credit on me. Because of my experiences here, I gained an appreciation for the value of good teamwork and strong leadership in the workplace. Through many difficult situations I was able to become a leader I never thought possible for myself, and these are lessons and qualities that I will continue to carry through the rest of my life.

14


Leadership

Through South Apartment Council I led many initiatives to build community including throwing food programs and selling t-shirts to raise money for the American Heart Association. In 2012 I was recognized by UIC Chancellor Paula Allen-Meares for my community service efforts.

I continued my work through SAC by attending conferences and winning awards for UIC by teaching workshops to students from other schools about engineering and teamwork.

My time as a resident assistant allowed me to meet so many different people and offered many unique challenges.

15


Leadership

As an RA I led many different initiatives including leading students all over the City of Chicago and even leading an intramural basketball team so residents could meet other like-minded individuals and learn about campus recreational resources.

I helped in the creation and running of many successful programs including saturday-morning newspaper and breakfast discussions and open-mic nights. I also made many informative bulletin boards while in this position.

As a transfer student myself I know all too well the difficulties in moving to a new community. So one program I lead was a BBQ to welcome new transfer students to the community and teach them how to adapt to UIC life.

16


Leadership

Living in an urban enviroment can be dangerous if not prepared. To help residents prepare for life in the city I helped run a series of Self-Defense Classes that taught our attendees how to avoid danger and how to properly fend off an attacker.

As engineering is such a big part of my life I shared my love for this with other residents through programs such as the Marshmallow Challenge, an event I learned about through TED.

17


Leadership

During my time as a resident assistant I hosted a large variety of events and programs.

As an RA I continued to attend conferences and learned more about leadership and team dynamics from Student Affairs professionals from all over Illinois. I did my part in this exchange as well by presenting my engineering workshops on leadership and teamwork at conferences and recieved more awards and recognition for my work.

18


StrengthQuest

While an RA I was fortunate to be able to take the StrengthsQuest test, a detailed online assessment that allows takers to discover their traits and talents and help them develop professionally. After taking the test the system gives a customized report that lists your top five talent themes, along with action items for development and suggestions about how you can use your talents to achieve academic, career, and personal success. Here are my five talents:

Harmony You look for areas of agreement. In your view there is little to be gained from conflict and friction, so you seek to hold them to a minimum.

Relator The Relator theme pulls you toward people you already know. You do not necessarily shy away from meeting new people, but you do derive a great deal of pleasure and strength from being around your close friends.

Arranger You are a conductor. When faced with a complex situation involving many factors, you enjoy managing all of the variables, aligning and realigning them until you are sure you have arranged them in the most productive configuration possible. You are simply trying to figure out the best way to get things done.

Deliberative For you, life is not a popularity contest. Life is something of a minefield. Others can run through it recklessly if they so choose, but you take a different approach. You identify the dangers, weigh their relative impact, and then place your feet deliberately. You walk with care.

Consistency In direct contrast to this world of special favors, you believe that people function best in a consistent environment where the rules are clear and are applied to everyone equally. It is predictable and evenhanded. It is fair. Here each person has an even chance to show his or her worth.

19


Conclusion

Why should you hire me? -- Sharp mind and intellect that can quickly learn new systems -- Engineering background with strong analytical skills, CADD and a knack for problem solving -- Experience in development of many different products -- Strong sense of community and loyalty who can assemble and lead a strong and diverse team of people and lead that team to success There’s no shortage of experienced, intelligent mechanical engineers on the market. However I can guarantee that very few of those engineers come close to matching the unique combination of skills and traits that I possess. Plenty of engineers go on to be leaders in their fields, but it takes them many years to acquire the experience and knowledge of leadership needed to lead their companies to success. I’ve spent the past few years continuously challenging myself and developing the skills needed to be a great engineering leader all before I graduated. I’m a young and eager engineering graduate looking to find my place in the world and hoping to find a place where I can let my talents shine. I hope that the skills and experience that I have shared in this portfolio have proven my competence and capabilites. If you do find me worthy of joining your team I welcome the opportunity to meet and further show how I can help your company succeed.
