Integrated Engineering is a cross disciplinary engineering curriculum with broad scope.

I learned to apply engineering principles and find solutions in structural, mechanical, and electrical design.

My education enables me to engage directly with my team by understanding the project from the perspectives of the other members.
Metalcraft Technologies Inc. - Aerospace Manufacturing
Cedar City, Utah
July 2007-Dec. 2010
I designed and proposed an alternative layup procedure that would eliminate the need for batching, minimize in process inventory, and reduce lead time.
I created a traveler document template with quality assurance checks at each value added process.

Other Work Experience
I'm not afraid to work hard and get my hands dirty!
My name is Levi Nelson, and I’m currently looking for a job in manufacturing or design.
I have a bachelor’s degree in engineering and 7 years of engineering experience in manufacturing settings.
I create plans, procedures, and tools that improve work flow and reduce errors. I have direct experience with a variety of fabrication tools and processes.
My employers value me for my versatility, attention to detail, and ability to see the big picture.
I am creative and learn quickly.
After only 6 months I was entrusted with managing the Boeing Military account consisting of over 1300 part numbers mainly for the F-22.
