Michael Mira

Principal, Global Director of Product Engineering

Working in the Mechanical Design and Thermal Management field since he was 15 years old, Michael has been put in charge of everyday technical communication between Heatscape and its customers. With many years of experience using 3D CAD, and software for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), Michael provides Heatscape’s customers with end-to-end thermal solutions. This means mechanical and thermal support from the design, analysis and prototyping phase, into hard-tooling and production. In order to be better polished in the everyday world of manufacturing, Michael received his Bachelors in Manufacturing Engineering from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, and has used the practical skills learned from his education to help propel his career.
