Alison Alexsy Mechanical & Aerospace Engineer

My Expertise

Hi! My name is Alison Alexsy. I am from the Metro Detroit Area and currently reside in Madison, Wisconsin. I am a recent graduate from Michigan Tech University located in the snowy and beautiful Houghton, Michigan. I earned my BS degree in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Aerospace Engineering. I am employed as an Applications Engineer for a web guiding and visual inspection company in the printing industry. This site showcases my proficencies and the many projects I have worked on so far in my engineering career. Below you can preview my selected technical and computer software skills in addition to some recent projects I have worked on. To view a full list of my skills you can check out my resume here!.

Design

solidworks nx autocad

I specialize in several computer aided design softwares including Solidworks and Siemens NX. Furthermore, I have taken extensive coursework in geometric dimension and tolerancing (GD&T) and advanced CAD/CAM methods.

Tools

Aerospace Clean Room Recertification

  • Circuit board fabrication, IoT platform integration, Visio integration maps

A clean room's goal is to reduce particulate contamination by controlling environmental parameters such as humidity, temperature and pressure. If excess debris ends up in a clean room where critical flight hardware is present, satellite equipment can be damaged leading to extended timelines and loss of money. In order to confirm Michigan Tech's Aerospace Enterprise's clean room met Class ISO 8 standards, I designed a continually monitoring sensor system. This involved tasks such as creating circuit boards and system integration maps.

Asteroid Retrieval Mission

  • MatLab, Hohmann Transfers, Lunar Fly-by

In order to conduct research on early solar system life, my project group was tasked to calculate a rendezvous mission to a local asteroid within a 2-year timeline. We were told to incoporate a lunar fly-by and to also end our mission in lunar orbit after the rendezvous.
