[EAST LANSING, Michigan] 3DFoundri, a high-tech startup in Michigan’s Capitol Region, is pleased to announce the hiring of Winston Wei this month as a full-time Project Engineer dedicated to the MAF and 3D metal printing projects at 3DFoundri.
Winston graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Eastern Michigan University this year. Before working at 3DFoundri, he worked in the automotive industry for three summers as an intern in Materials and Research Engineering and in Materials and Benchmarking Engineering.
