STUDENT ASSISTANT-R&D - STUDENT ENGINEER - SYSTEMS AND SENSORS
Collaborate with experienced engineers on instrumentation, control, test, and monitoring systems for government and commercial customers. Use design tools for mechanical engineering and solid modeling, schematic capture, analysis, automation and control, and machine learning applied to projects that support aircraft and turbine engine systems; primarily for the US DoD. Collaborate with project engineers to accomplish technical tasks on projects associated with aircraft propulsion and control. Tasks include different analysis, such as thermodynamic and mechanical stress, instrumentation setup and development of custom LabVIEW software. In addition, the student will be working on aircraft component test systems and the implementation of new test procedures while applying mechanical engineering concepts to accomplish project completion.
