MJ McMillen - creator, student, robotics engineer.
Creating, designing, learning
My name is Miranda J McMillen and I am currently studying Robotics at Olin College of Engineering in Needham, MA. I love to create not only robots but sew, draw, and write as well. My background is a mix of creativity, robots, and statistical analytics. Olin has not only taught me much about engineering but allowed me to explore soft robotics, navigation, and machining.
For the past three summers, I have worked at PJM the electrical grid operator for the Mid-Atlantic and have analyzed natural gas markets, reserve capacity loads, and updating locations for natural gas depots.
I grew up in Downingtown, PA and attended the Downingtown STEM Academy. There. I was competitive in Vex Robotics and had an experiment go to the International Space Station.
Olin College of Engineering
Where I study. Olin is a completely innovative school which is small in size but big on changing engineering education.
Downingtown STEM Academy
Where I am from. STEM focus and the IB program stacked on top of each other made for a very rigorous education.
