Director of Engineering Projects and EHS
Jesus Carrillo is manager of engineering projects at the Medical Center of the Americas (MCA) Foundation. Prior to the MCA, he worked as a junior engineer at a natural gas company where he redesigned their calibration and maintenance internal processes. He also collected the information from 245 tools, equipment and machinery and programmed calibrations for each item using corporate software. Eventually, the system was designed to create work orders and notify managers of cases of non-compliance.
His most recent research work took place in Montreal during the summer of 2014, when he developed programming skills using 3D computer models to simulate electrical activity within the human heart. This experience was possible thanks to the Mitacs Globalink Award. He also worked as a research assistant at the Tec de Monterrey for the head of the biomedical engineering program, and later worked as a technician at Hospital Angeles in Juárez, Mexico.
During his first year in college, he was an intern at Bosch Automotive, gaining a valuable perspective and understanding of the manufacturing industry in Juárez. Jesus graduated from the Tec de Monterrey in Chihuahua, Mexico with a degree in biomedical engineering.
