Digital Design Engineers are responsible for design, analysis, development, and test of wide range of Digital hardware including processors, demodulators, routers, ASICs/FPGAs, for space and airborne applications.
Responsibilities: Perform circuit/schematic/PCB design and analysis, develop/test/troubleshoot prototype hardware, perform data reduction and analysis, develop and flow down requirements, perform architectural trade studies, implement/verify/integrate/test final designs.
Coursework: Digital circuit design, FPGA/Microcontroller design
Power Electronics Engineer are responsible for design, analysis, development, and test of advanced power electronics for space and airborne applications.
Responsibilities: Design, analysis, and manufacturing of high-reliability, high-efficiency power converters for spacecraft applications. The selected candidate will perform circuit design, magnetic development, feedback control loop analysis, circuit modeling & simulation, laboratory test and troubleshooting; and production support. Must be familiar with circuit analysis tools and techniques (e.g., PSpice, MathCAD) and have some experience working with electronic instruments (e.g., voltmeters, oscilloscopes, signal generators, etc.) in a laboratory environment.
Coursework: Analog circuit design, power electronics/power conversion
RF and Mixed Signal Design Engineers are responsible for design, analysis, development, and test of advanced RF electronics for space and airborne applications. Responsibilities: Perform circuit/schematic/IC and module design and analysis, develop/test/troubleshoot prototype hardware, perform data reduction and analysis, develop and flow down requirements, perform architectural trade studies, implement/verify/integrate/test final designs.
Coursework: RF and analog circuit design, Custom IC design
System Design Engineers are responsible for design, analysis, development, and test of wide range of RF, Digital, Analog hardware and systems for space and airborne applications.
Responsibilities: Perform circuit/schematic/PCB/unit design and analysis, develop/test/troubleshoot prototype hardware, perform data reduction and analysis, develop and flow down requirements, perform architectural trade studies, implement/verify/integrate/test final designs.
Coursework: Digital/RF/Analog design, communication system theory
Test Engineers are responsible for providing manufacturing test support for a wide range of RF, Digital, Analog hardware and systems for space and airborne applications.
Responsibilities: Support and provide inputs to test set design and development activities, provide guidance in the development of test sequences, requirements, and procedures, thus enabling efficient test-to-cost objectives are met. The test engineering candidate will also provide manufacturability/ testability assessments during design reviews to ensure that efficient/ low cost testing methods are applied. During the production phase, the test engineer will maintain and update the test set, test tooling, test procedures, and software that they will be responsible for. The test engineer will also be expected to support test technicians during test setups and troubleshooting when required.
Coursework: Digital/RF/Analog design
- Candidate must be enrolled in a Bachelor of Science, Master of Science, or PhD degree program, majoring in Electrical or Electronics Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering, Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Math, Physics or a related STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering or Math) discipline
- Ability to obtain a U.S. Government security clearance (U.S. citizenship is a prerequisite)
- Available to work full-time (40 hours per week) for a minimum of 10 weeks during the summer 2016 semester
- Have at least a 3.7/4.0 overall GPA
- Relevant academic projects and/or previous internship experience in a related field
