Default Where do you work related to composites and what do you do?

Post the companies you work for related to composites and what is it that you do? what type of schooling do you have?

I hope this isnt a repost but I will start first. I am currently enrolled at the DATC for composites. but i plan on making my own products for the automotive world.

Research Associate at University of Delaware - Center for Composite Materials (www.ccm.udel.edu)
I am more of a technical and processing person compared to the other more scientific and indepth researchers. Mostly because I do not have schooling in engineering, and suck at math. This just happens to be my hobby I tend to make and test material characteristics, and figure out how to process it. I work closely with other consortium members on new projects and grants they have to get it done.

I own PolyTube Cycles and repair damaged CF bike frames. I am also currently preparing the first prototypes for formal testing and assuming positive results will offer custom sized CF road frames in the future.

Currently I'm working at a small car factory, where I do the composites. From prototyping to production setup.
I'm trained as a composite yacht builder, no formal education, lots of reading and experimenting

I'm the production manager at Rivers Carbon. We make composite equipment for the mining industry. But we also produce bespoke composite parts for all the other sectors.

I've got a bachelor of mechanical engineering, and don't use anything taught in the composite paper.

About to graduate with Mechanical Engineering degree. I got into composites through research grants and used those skills to help various clubs around campus. Currently a professional videogame player (read unemployed)

I would LOVE to work in the automotive field, especially in manufacturing or research.

Also this thread is a great idea! I hope you don't mind me moving it to the introductions forum and stickying it.

Own a company that builds composite parts for the automotive, geophysical survey industry and industrial related composite applications. Automotive is the most fun and actually most stressful, but a lot of satisfaction when you see a clients face and how happy they are with the product.

Formal education is accounting, also a chem degree but really just liked doing composites and learned what I know the hard way.
