A successful entrepreneur and a Stevens Institute grad, Sigma's newest member,
Nicholas Faust, who began as an intern in January 2011, was hired full time in May 2011 and has settled nicely into the Sigma team.
Nick's success with helping to launch a successful skateboard start-up company that relies on human energy dovetails nicely with one of his first assignments at Sigma - a renewable energy project to prototype a vehicle energy harvesting device.
Nick is excited by such green technology/renewable energy projects and also aspires to be involved with industrial automation technologies. Nick earned both a Masters of Engineering in Product- Architecture and Engineering (May 2011) and Bachelor's of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering (2009) from Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, New Jersey.
When asked what he most enjoys about Sigma, Nick shared: "I think the breadth of projects at Sigma Design Company - from consumer products to medical devices to renewable energy projects, keeps it interesting and challenging. I've learned a great deal about the challenges of manufacturability. It has been a great transition from the academic to the professional world."
