  • Xavier had a lot of ideas, but he needed to focus on the most important components that would go into his design paper.

Matched professor:

A mechanical engineering professor from Columbia University who teaches courses in thermal-fluids engineering and aerospace propulsion.

How did our program help him?

  • We provided support to Xavier in revising and improving his design paper writing.
  • Xavier learned to improve his patent application paper for his product design.
  • Xavier produced a design paper that defines the wearable device’s purpose, function, and dimensional parameters.
  • The mentor helped Xavier reviewed and improved his patent design application
  • Through the program, a final evaluation was written, identifying Xavier’s strengths and weaknesses.
