Meet the Team
Calvin College Engineering Senior Design Team 3 consists of four senior Electrical & Computer Concentration engineering students with interests in video processing, sensor tracking, data acquisition, and software development.
Arnold is an Engineering student in the Electrical and Computer Engineering concentration. His favorite part of the Engineering program has been the analog oriented classes from his junior year. He likes to work with transfer functions, filters, and amplifiers. Outside of the Engineering program, Arnold also works on music production and composition. He is also the president of the Calvin student chapter of IEEE. Arnold currently works part time at Dematic and plans to work there full time after graduation. At Dematic, he programs programmable logic controllers and drafts using AutoCAD. For this project, Arnold’s main goal is to design the sensor circuit and the data acquisition unit.
Dan is a senior Engineering student in the Electrical and Computer Engineering concentration at Calvin College. Along with his engineering degree, he is planning on graduating with a minor in mathematics. Dan is currently working part time at Johnson Controls where he has been an intern for the past two summers. Dan is also a member of Calvin College Wind Ensemble, where he plays the euphonium (which can be described as a small tuba). In his free time, Dan enjoys running (mainly road racing), reading, and playing video games. He is not sure what his plans are after graduation, but is applying to a variety of engineering positions, graduate schools, and urban education programs (such as Teach for America or Memphis Teacher Residency).
Walter is a senior Engineering student in the Electrical and Computer Engineering concentration at Calvin College. Walter has worked for Johnson Controls in Holland, MI designing functional testers for automotive electronics. In addition, Walter has professional experience as a network analyst in healthcare as well as professional experience in audio and video production. Walter brings to the team a technical background in video systems and signal flow, as well as organizational and communication skills. In his free time, Walter enjoys working on late model muscle cars, listening to country music, and helping others with technical problems. Upon graduation, Walter will be taking a position in applications engineering with Texas Instruments in Dallas.
Dan is a senior Engineering student in the Electrical and Computer Engineering concentration Calvin College. He currently works as an intern at Dematic doing CAD design, automation software design, and data collection software. He also enjoys playing and modifying video games as a hobby. He brings varied experience with software design and virtual environment programming to the project. His section of the project is the virtual environment and the hardware-software interfaces.
