production. The suspension system on this vehicle is particular, mostly
because of the vehicle's low floor and center-mounted battery packs,
leaving very little space for the suspension. It has dynamically adaptive
ride behavior, while also allowing the vehicle to lower itself to help
people in and out easily.
Who most influenced you on your journey to becoming an engineer?

My father was the only person to really know and understand my
dedication to the Formula Student project. He was the only one who
knew I was putting all my time designing and building a racecar instead
of studying or even showing up to class. I mention Formula Student
before "professional engineer" because I truly believe that this project
gave me a purpose in life, and in engineering. I always knew I wanted
to be an engineer, but when I visited ETS for the first time as a "precollege" student and saw the Formula prototype car, I really knew that
was what I wanted to do.
For how long have you been involved in SAE?

I was a member of the Formula Student team at my school, ETS
Montreal, mostly involved in powertrain and drivetrain, but helping in
pretty much every aspect of the project. From team management and
treasury to mechanical design, through composite manufacturing and
shop work, I've touched pretty much every aspect of my "future-tobe-engineer-life" with the Formula ETS team. Having to deal with team
partners, suppliers, sponsors, deadlines, budgets, and learning stuff
you don't see in class to manage to design, build, and compete with
a vehicle, all this in one year, is a pretty extreme but effective way of
learning to be an engineer.
Why did you decide to continue your SAE Membership beyond college?

I became an SAE Professional Member mostly because of the
advantages, especially for books and technical papers.

The ETS Formula Student team placed first in the Design Event at
Formula North 2015.
What is your favorite thing to do outside of work?

Watchmaking is my new favorite hobby, as it involves
mechanics, on a much smaller scale, lots of precision, and
an incredible amount of engineering/technical problems
to solve. I've been designing a diver's watch in my spare
time, and the technicality of the project is pushing me
to design other watches afterwards, maybe even start a
business later on if I want.
