Hi! I'm Eu Jin. I have a Masters of Engineering degree from University of Toronto, graduated with the highest distinction.

I have designed numerous printed circuit boards in university as a researcher and a student, and in startup communities based in Toronto. I'm passionate in engineering and I have extensive knowledge and hands-on experience in Mechatronics and Electromechanical Systems.

I recently took a dive and formed my own business as I was not contented with a strict 9AM - 5PM job. I provide consulting services to businesses which includes design data migration, integration between design data and external ERP/PLM software and implementation of Altium Designer.

I have great interpersonal skills, and extensive commitment and passion in the field of engineering.
