Story: 
I developed a Windows version of an existing Unix-based software package to simulate a radial forging process using finite element analysis. This assignment included creating a graphical user interface using Visual Basic that allows the user to specify input parameters, run the simulations, inspect, and plot the results. The original finite element-based solver was updated to meet FORTRAN90 language requirements. This internship program allowed me to gain valuable experience relating to both my MS curriculum at UNC Charlotte and my future career goals. It also helped me to develop my problem solving and project management skills.
