Justin Perera, Mechanical Process Engineering Intern

“Over the past year at Xaar, I have had the opportunity to develop my skills and knowledge as an engineer, becoming proficient in Solidworks (CAD) and additive manufacturing. My time here has been thoroughly enjoyable, being granted the freedom to work on projects of great significance with established engineers who have taught me more than I could have ever hoped for. On these projects, I have been able to contribute my ideas and suggestions that would best benefit the team.”
