About Colin Dottor:

Hi my Name is Colin Dottor and am currently a second-semester junior attending Merrimack College while majoring in Mechanical Engineering. I am intrigued to potentially work for a future company, as I am striving to find a full-fledged opportunity for career growth. My ability to grasp new concepts quickly and drive for modernization will be assets that complement the company’s goal in finding technology-enabled solutions. I believe I am starting to gain traction in my knowledge of engineering principles in my time at Merrimack. I am searching to be a contributing member in brainstorming and problem-solving at a given workplace. This last summer I interned for Contech Medical, a company now under UFP Technologies. In this environment, I worked with a team which was composed of many different disciplines. This position allowed me to work on CAD-based projects for the company with programs including Solidworks, Autodesk Fusion 360, and Python. In addition, I got to construct electronic drawings for various manufacturing machines, work on time studies, and got hands-on experience with different machines. I feel these experiences can be practical in contributing to projects and troubleshooting problems. I believe I have a strong work ethic, eagerness to learn, and can multitask effectively. Asking the right questions for the incentive in putting my best effort in is what I strive to do. As a strong candidate eager for experience and to deepen my understanding of mechanical design, I am interested in finding landing spot in a future career in engineering.
