Alex Radulescu

I graduated Spring 2019 with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from the University of Florida, where I specialized in Electronic Circuits, Digital Logic & Computer Design, and Bioelectrical Systems. I have 3 years’ work experience in the field of electronics, in applications such as: signal generators for medical and scientific uses; automated license plate recognition software and hardware; and repair and test of surgical pumps. My most recent achievement was to pass the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam on my first sitting. I am currently seeking an entry-level position in electrical power, medical devices, computer hardware design, or technical sales. My core values are integrity, compassion, and perseverance. I believe that habits form us and thus strive for excellence in all that I do.
