Daniel Levy

Daniel Levy is studying mechanical engineering at the University of Florida and will graduate Spring 2021. During his time in undergrad, Daniel was fortunate to have opportunities for both engineering and leadership experience. He has collaborated with two local engineering startups where he worked on everything from internal passion projects to hourly client contract work. Daniel also has a summer of machine shop experience, spending dozens of hours manufacturing parts on mills, lathes, and other machine shop equipment. In addition to his engineering endeavors, Daniel has been highly involved in his fraternity during his undergraduate experience, having served as recruitment chair, vice president, and president. Daniel hopes to use his education and experience to build a better world than the one he came into with efficient, sustainable, and ethical engineering.
