Who Am I?

My name is Matthew Holden and I am a mature student pursuing a Bachelor of Engineering Science in Software Engineering at Western University. I have previously worked as a computer technician, and have an interest in logo and web design. I am a lifelong Colorado Avalanche fan, enjoy keeping fit, and love to play video games.

If you need someone to carry you to and then plateau at Platinum III in Rocket League, feel free to send me a friend invite on steam!

Education & Experience

Bachelor of Engineering Science

Western University - London, ON

September 2017 - Present

I recently finished the common first year of engineering at Western as a mature student. This was spread out over two years due to starting as a part-time student, though I also picked up four second year courses applicable to my discipline. I will begin my academic career in Software Engineering in the fall of 2019.

One of the first year design projects tasked my design group with sorting three different types of balls. We decided to use the weight difference between the balls as the defining feature to base our sorting method on. A motor was used to slowly introduce and separate the balls onto a ramp which lead to a high CFM PC fan blowing in the opposite direction to the motion of the balls. Combined with the weight-dependent speed gained from the ramp, the fan exerted the force necessary to change the paths of the balls into their three corresponding collection areas. Both devices were supplied power from the 12V rail of a PC power supply.

Computer Technician

Superior Computers - Lambeth, ON

August 2007 - July 2015

I began working at Superior Computers in the builds department, putting together systems and preparing them for customers after they had been ordered. My responsibilities grew to include working in the service department: helping customers at the front desk or on the phone, and diagnosing or repairing issues with customers' systems. I wrote batch scripts to help myself and co-workers automate software installation process for new and old systems. To further automate things, I implemented a network deployment system for PXE installations of Windows.
