About me

Greetings, I am Karthik Selvam S D. I am an Aerospace Engineer with strong Research, Presentation and Analytical skills demonstrated by 4+ years experience in the Aerospace Industry. I am a Master's graduate in Aerospace Structures & Composites from McGill - Concordia joint Aerospace program in Canada. I am currently working as a Structures Engineer in the Aircraft Certification Engineering (ACE) Department at FLYHT Aerospace.

I have demonstrated research experience from India and Canada, Few of my research projects include,

Developing a low-cost novel subsonic Ramjet engine design using CFD, Fabricating the engine setup and Testing it with an alternate biofuel, Designing and Developing a natural composite plate using coconut Fibre and natural resin, Various graduate level projects involving stress analysis and vibrational analysis of composite structures.

My long term goal is to develop a Research organisation that could provide innovative solutions to improve and economize Aircraft Structures & Gas Turbines.

Apart from being an Aerospace Engineer and doing awesome stuff. I started volunteering from November 2015. I had started applying for my Master's in Canada in the month of June 2015, By September I was already aware of the complete application process by researching through websites and reaching out to professors and students in Canada. Few of my college juniors came to know that, I had applied for Canadian Universities and they got in contact with me to have a evaluation on their profile so that I could suggest/classify universities for them. I started doing this for some 5 to 10 people, after initial calls with them they all had some similar questions so I create a WhatsApp group and added all 10 to respond to their questions. The WhatsApp group reached its limit in 4 days and then I had to create 2 more groups to fit in others. Then in the month of January 2016 I had received admits from all the 4 universities that I had applied for my Master's and the group count went to 5 already. It was difficult to answer same question again and again that's when I founded this group Master's in Canada - Students Association (MEng / MASc / PhD / PGD).

Now the group has 6.5k members in it and I would happily say I should have helped more than 4k people in the past 4 years.

I am always passionate about research and developing new stuff in science. My research project that I did during my bachelor's thesis is my best work till date and seeing that my undergrad professors pass on my contact info to every final year student who is trying to do something innovative. I have been guiding a lot of students in their final year and have also collaborated with few to help them to achieve in their research work.
