A mentorship experience that gives students an opportunity to apply classroom knowledge to a new product development and manufacturing environment. This co-op will gain practical experience to develop engineering judgment, with increasing independent control over design decisions, processes, adaptations, and/or modifications. Functions may include, but not limited to, performing tests, process changes using 3D modeling and Oracle, gathering and preparing data, and giving presentations. Depending on experience level, they will be given opportunities to lead their own projects.
Conduct research in an effort to develop new products, as well as improve existing processes and/or product design.
Gain an understanding of the new product development process by participating on cross-functional teams, including mechanical, software, industrial, tooling, and supply chain development.
Assist in the design and analysis of complex parts and controls systems to applicable standards.
Develop control and component test specifications.
Actively involved in all phases of the design, analysis of design, testing of design, and qualification of the design for production and sale to the public.
Create documents related to the electrical engineering function. Documents include, flow charts, wiring schematics, electronic schematics, source code, hazard analysis, validation test plans, and Bill of Materials, Engineering Change Orders and design records.
Introduction to a design process compliant with FDA, Good Manufacturing Processes, ISO 9001, Underwriters Laboratories Standards, Canadian Standards, IEC-60601 and any future regulations that may affect product design.
Complete engineering change orders.
Write test protocols and reports.
Use a variety of software toolsets, such as 3D modeling, Microsoft Office.
Conduct report-outs and formal presentations on work conducted.
EDUCATION and/or EXPERIENCE:
Enrollment in a 4 year accredited degree program, working towards a BS in Mechanical, Manufacturing, and Electrical, Software Engineering or other applicable degree.
Must be a sophomore, junior or senior status.
Must possess working knowledge and experience with design of experiments, problem solving, Excel and 3D Modeling.
Ability to relate technical knowledge to job-related duties.
Demonstrated ability to solve problems and make decisions independently.
Excellent written and oral communication skills.
