Michael Ciurylo is a Technical Advisor at the Haley Guiliano San Jose Office.
Before joining the Haley Guiliano team, Michael spent the last several years working in the Metro Detroit Area as a system engineer for automotive companies. His foundation for automotive system engineering was built at the University of Connecticut through the annual Society of Automotive Engineers Formula SAE team competition. After being accepted into an exchange program in Stuttgart, Germany, between the University of Connecticut and Universität Stuttgart, Michael took Master’s in Engineering courses which led to an offer to work at the BMW Group Forschung und Innovationszentrum in Munich, Germany, to assist with the development of now current production motorcycle and automobile design concepts.
After returning to the United States to finish a BS Mechanical Engineering Degree from the UConn School of Engineering and a BA German Language Degree from the UConn College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Michael started his engineering career as a project engineer for a small engineering firm that specialized in equipment and implants for spinal surgery. Soon after, Ford Motor Company brought Michael to the Metro Detroit Area with an offer to work on a team which created the framework for an autonomous vehicle operating network by developing actuation modules which rely on sensor data and calibrated algorithms. Michael continued his engineering career by working on projects at Robert Bosch AS and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles to bring into serial production improved vehicle systems across multiple vehicle platforms that are being sold in markets around the world.
Michael cultivated an understanding of material analysis, circuit performance, touch screen development, graphics generation, the sensitivity of vehicle dynamics to build deviations, and the integration of multiple modules into a cohesive system during his career as an engineer. His involvement with the launches of various projects also allowed Michael to be involved in industrial process and manufacturing troubleshooting. Through these investigations, Michael and the teams he worked on were able to develop production line improvements through both software and hardware changes that were implemented in multiple production locations.
