About Me

Learn More

My name is Thomas (TJ) Watson, and I am a mechanical engineer designing computers and liquid cooling systems for autonomous vehicles. I'm always learning on the job, and spend my free time on side projects that earn me new skills. I am always working to better myself as an engineer and person.

I am currently a full-time Mechanical Engineer. I graduated with High Honors from Worcester Polytechnic Institute with Bachelor of Science degrees in Robotics Engineering and Mechanical Engineering in the spring of 2015.
