Support from his Teammates, Faculty and Staff Sets Hunter Goodwin ‘24 (Mechanical Engineering) Up for Success


Leading up to Spring Commencement, we’re asking some of our graduates to tell us about their experience as Greyhounds and what they have planned for the next step in their journey. Meet Hunter Goodwin, who will receive his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in mathematics, this May! 

Why did you pursue mechanical engineering?

I love to build and design things!

Why did you choose to study at UIndy?

I chose UIndy because of the small class sizes and soccer!

Are you a part of any extracurriculars (RSOs, societies, student leadership, teams, volunteerism, etc.) on or off campus? If so, what are they and what is your role?

I am a part of the UIndy Men’s soccer team!

Are there any faculty or staff members who have significantly impacted your time at UIndy? If so, who are they and how did they influence you?

All of the engineering faculty have helped me tremendously, but specifically Dr. Suranga Dharmarathne helped me a lot through my time at UIndy.

During your time at UIndy, did you have the opportunity to complete an internship or earn part-/full-time employment with an organization in your field? If so, what was it and how did it help you professionally?

I had two internships at ADM (Archer-Daniels-Midland). “At ADM, I worked as a reliability engineer in both New Orleans, LA and Jackson, TN. The engineering courses that I have taken really set me up for these internships and I did really well in my position.”

What are your plans after graduation?

After graduation, I plan to start my career at NSK in Franklin, Ind. in May.

What is one of your favorite memories from your time at UIndy? 

“The after-game celebration after beating Marian with the soccer team!”
