Felix Ban

I graduated University of Michigan with a MS in Aerospace Engineering in April 2017 in addition to my MS and BS in Mechanical Engineering from Arts et Métiers Paristech.

I came to the US in August 2017 for my MS at University of Michigan. To study in the US you have to be much more autonomous than in France due to their schooling system.

I am now working at Exa Corporation – Dassault Systèmes in Brisbane, CA, as an Aeroacoustics Engineer Intern.

As an intern at Exa Corporation I design fluid systems on CATIA such as engine parts, exhaust bodies, HVAC systems, cooling packages, etc... and then I set up CFD simulations of PowerFLOW in order to study their acoustics and heating performances. Being a Gadzarts has brought me organizational skills as well as technical skills such as using CATIA, for example.

My internship ends on February 28, 2018 and I am looking for a full-time position as an Aerospace/Mechanical Design Engineer in the US as I want to continue my American experience. I hope that Gadzarts network might be helpful to me in my work search.

One of my favorite ways to spend my free time is going out with my friends exploring the city (San Francisco where I live now) and the state of California.
