Meet The Officers

Harry Koos

President

Hello! My name is Harry Koos and I am a fourth-year industrial engineering major from Penngrove, California. As president of the QL+ Student Association, it is my job to oversee all aspects of the program, maintain our partnerships, and look for ways to expand upon our mission. QL+ has provided me with so many opportunities to gain meaningful hands-on engineering experience in my first three years of college, and now I’m excited to be able to create those opportunities for other students. I believe everyone deserves a life without limits, which is why I choose to dedicate my time to this organization. Within QL+ I hope to develop a culture that encourages learning, collaboration, and innovation. When I’m not living in the QL+ lab, I enjoy staying active with sports like soccer and rock climbing. Please feel free to contact me with any questions about our student association.

Gage Vogtlin

Senior Vice President

Hello, my name is Gage Vogtlin. I am a third-year biomedical engineering major from Sacramento California. My job ensures the smooth operation and organization of the lab while providing overall assistance in the Technical Core responsibilities such as 3D printing and workshops. The QL+ Student Association has allowed me to gain irreplaceable firsthand experience through club events and as leader of a Lab Development Project my first year. QL+ is a special place because it lets me fuse my passions of creation and helping others. While I’m not in the QL+ lab, I pursue other interests such as assisting in research experiments at the Biomedical Engineering Department, barbequing, and playing guitar in local jam sessions. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, especially regarding 3D printing or manufacturing resources on campus.

I joined QL+ SA for the unique experience offered to members to positively impact the lives of community members by engineering a better quality of life. I look forward to contributing to the growth and success of this association, and I appreciate the opportunity to participate in such an amazing organization.

Noah Thompson

Treasurer

Hi! My name is Noah Thompson and I am a fourth year Mechanical Engineer from Orange County, California. As Treasurer of the QL+ Student Association, I oversee all financial aspects of our association. This includes managing funds to best promote the growth and learning of our student body and most importantly, positively impact the lives of others with an immediate physical need. I’ve been a sports guy my whole life including: football, baseball, snowboarding, and mountain biking. Due to my experience in sports, I have been exposed to countless injuries, both personally and with teammates. Through this, I have developed such gratitude for the doctors and technology that allow people to continue doing the activities they love; this is why I am so excited to be a part of this organization that helps others in the same way that I have been helped. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about QL+SA, or myself in general. Thanks!

Bradley Kwan

Technical Director

Hi! My name is Bradley Kwan and I am a fourth year mechanical engineering major concentrating in mechatronics from Foster City, California. During my first year at Cal Poly, QL+ offered a great learning space and community, bringing me up to speed on all the basic engineering software and principles. As technical director, I hope to continue the tradition of creating a safe learning space, providing members with the resources necessary to flourish and positively impact their peers and the community of San Luis Obispo. I will bring members up to speed on multiple rapid prototyping techniques, engineering principles, and engineering programs. My interests include powered prosthetics, animatronics, and robotics applications for the medical, manufacturing, and entertainment industries. Outside of the classroom, I play the keyboard at a local church and I rock climb or cook in my free time.

Austin Conrad

Manufacturing Director

Austin is a 4th year Mechanical Engineering transfer student here at Cal Poly. He has extensive work experience in automotive repair, manufacturing and last year worked on one of our most daunting QL+ projects, Hands for Julian.
