August 2023 | Inspired by Yasmin, Manufacturing Engineer
Yasmin holds a BS in Mechanical Engineering from The University of Southern California and a MS in Mechanical Engineering with emphasis in Manufacturing from University of California, Los Angeles. In her current position as Manufacturing Engineer Manager at FMH Ametek, she works in aerospace, figuring out how to bring engineering drawings/blueprints to life by bringing multiple disciplines (quality, design, operations, supply chain) together to define the best solution.
When asked what she would say to young girls to inspire them today to pursue a STEM degree program or future career, Yasmin said: "Careers in STEM are creative. I think there is the idea that STEM jobs are only analytical and maybe even rigid and that is the opposite of my experience. There hasn’t been a day that has gone by where I haven’t used the creative side of my brain to define the build process for a product or to find a solution to a tricky assembly problem. We need all the diversity of thought in the STEM arena to develop solutions.”
Process Improvement pairs well with Manufacturing Engineer, also inspired by Yasmin.
