Eric Chang
Mechanical Engineer

Legos, K'nex, and Erector sets fueled Eric's fascination with building while he was growing up.

Play also taught him about not cutting corners — and how the maximal return on effort is gained with adequate research and planning. He still likes working with his hands and making prototypes. Today, his satisfaction comes from seeing a completed project working as designed in the real world. 

At Bresslergroup, Eric works on ideation, mechanical design, manufacturing support, and engineering analysis. He believes products should incorporate the simplest and most beautiful designs possible without sacrificing function or durability. His ultimate goal for each project? To make the end user happy.

Before joining the team, Eric — who has a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Rutgers University — was a project engineer at Stryker Orthopaedics where he designed deformity correction implants and surgical trauma instruments. His top areas of expertise include electro-mechanical ideation, medical device development, and biomechanical systems. 

Even outside of work Eric spends most of his time on design — his personal projects are catalogued at fourbardesign.com. When he’s not designing, he’s thrill-seeking outdoors, building FPV racing drones, or making music, photographs, and videos.
