Student Profile: Dominic Jaworski
Mechatronics System Engineering doctoral student in the Faculty of Applied Sciences
I have been apart of Mechatronics Systems Engineering at SFU since undergrad and continued my academic studies with a master's degree and currently pursuing a PhD. I have been apart of the Mechatronics for a long time at SFU and have enjoyed my experience and everything I learned a long the way.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO COME TO SFU?
As I was graduating from high school, I came to SFU for one of the open houses and introduced to the idea of Mechatronics Engineering and was instantly excited. I chose to come to SFU after being impressed as to what the Mechatronics program had to offer and have stayed on through an undergraduate and graduate degree. The Mechatronics Systems Engineering program at SFU has let me learn a lot and apply my knowledge for practical solutions and that is what excited me most about SFU and Mechatronics.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR RESEARCH OR YOUR PROGRAM TO A FAMILY MEMBER?
My research focuses on biomedical engineering by measuring sleep quality with non-invasive devices. By using hardware and sensors to evaluate signals with software systems, sleep quality can be analyzed in a more convenient manner that could help medical professionals treat patients with various sleep disorders.
WHAT ARE YOU PARTICULARLY ENJOYING ABOUT YOUR STUDIES/RESEARCH AT SFU?
Throughout all of my studies, I have enjoyed the opportunity to both learn the theory and apply it to practical problems. I have always enjoyed working on technical personal projects and my studies at SFU and Mechatronics has allowed me to expand my knowledge and understanding in various fields associated with Mechatronics. All my friends, colleagues and supervisors I have met throughout my studies have all been great and supportive of my continuing education.
