Quanser recently welcomed a new addition to the engineering team: Adam Mitlyng joined us on a position of Mechanical Design Engineer.
Adam decided to be part of the engineering world as a teenager, in part because he was always curious about "how things work". His career path was set after visiting North Dakota State University, where he met with a number of professors and was intrigued by their labs.
After graduating from North Dakota State with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, Adam joined MTS Systems Corporation, a leading supplier of servo-hydraulic test systems. While there, he spent most of his time focused on designing and building friction stir welding machinery.
When Adam decided to relocate to Canada, he was excited to find an opening at Quanser. The job seemed a perfect fit for his experience and interests. "The systems described on Quanser's website seemed exciting, fun and complex. I thought the team behind them must be very gifted and professional, and I wanted to be a part of it," he says.
As a member of the Mechatronics Group, Adam will be heavily involved with a new systems design, as well as with improving existing systems. One of his first tasks at Quanser was to make balance and assembly improvements to the 3 DOF Gyroscope.
In his free time, Adam listens to alternative rock music and enjoys traveling. He's visited Germany, Scotland and the Bahamas and would love to get to Ireland in the near future.
