Hello, my name is Gage Coprivnicar. I am a student at Boise State University, graduation date 2022. I am majoring in Electrical Engineering and am interested in renewable energy and automation in possible future careers.
I am able to put together webservers, REST APIs, automated systems, and embedded system applications and machine learning. Examples of these are showcased in various forms on my Github.
I also have my Associates in Solidworks and have AutoCAD and other 3D modeling software experience.
At ECCO Safety Group, based in Boise ID, I was tasked with designing and programming a light engine tester. This assisted me in understanding how the automobile standard Control Area Network (CAN) communication works. I used an Arduino with a CAN attachment to send and receive signals to and from the CAN bus. ECCO Safety Group
Royal Jay is a healthcare software company based in Boise ID. I was tasked with looking into the feasibility of Machine Learning in their software applications. This was done using anonymized test data set where I ran different regressions to see what fit the best and could be used to most effectively predict healthcare outcomes. This has resulted in a division of their business being focused on machine learning applications in healthcare. Royal Jay
Second semester of Sophomore year at Colorado School of Mines I participated in an entrepreneurship challenge where my team was tasked with improving the efficiency of mining operations for Newmont Mining Company. This project was a challenge as no individual in my team had mining experience or were mining engineers. As a Computer Science major, I worked with my team to research and develop a techology that a mining company would find useful. In the end, we decided on using blockchain technology to improve inter-company file storage which, according to a 2018 Ernst & Young report, was the number one issue facing mining companies.
I am intersted in an Electrical Engineering degree so I can get into the renewable energy field. I would like to establish renewable energy bases as well as more sustainable methods of creating the resources required to build renewable energy sources like photovoltaic cells and the like.
As robotics and automation takes over the work field, it becomes more important to have a way of ensuring I am relevant in my field. Being the person that creates the machines, and having the ability to create machines to accomplish tasks on a high level. I enjoy seeing how self-driving cars, and every day tasks are simplified and imagining a future where I am involved in that field is exciting.
