Internship Opportunity

Reference no: 2022.64E

Location: Holden Hill, SA

Engineering areas: Electrical/Electronics, Industrial/Manufacturing, Mechatronics, Mechanical, Software, Systems and Quality

Business description:

We service the needs of defence, mining, autonomous vehicles and motor sport industries requiring specialised engineering services. We specialise in Advanced engineering, performance vehicle design, analysis and multi body and motion simulation in the fields of vehicle dynamics and suspension design.  The systems we design and manufacture significantly improve the safety and performance of vehicles.   Our highly regarded work integrated learning program offers undergraduate engineering students experience in innovative world leading technologies that are applied across a range of sectors from Defence to high performance racing.  This is one of a few places in Australia operating across a vast range of sectors, as such its work experience program is highly sought after, and highly regarded within the industry.

Projects / tasks:

  • Automated Load Handling System – both control systems and mechanical opportunities as well as fabrication
  • Autonomous systems development – both control systems and mechanical design opportunities on a commercial vehicle project
  • Various Mechanical Engineering Design projects
  • Defence Mechanical projects
  • Quality Engineering projects

Technical skills:

  1. Dynamic Engineering Solutions – Advanced component design – Advanced component analysis – Kinematic analysis – Vehicle Suspension design – Aerodynamic design
  2. Simulation – Full articulated – rigid vehicle simulation – Terrain analysis – Vehicle driver training simulation – Race strategy simulation
  3. Manufacturing – CNC Machining / CAD programming  – 11 Axis CNC – 9 Axis CNC – 7 Axis CNC – 5 Axis CNC
  4. Quality – CMM up to 2 microns
  5. Computer Aided Design (CAD) – Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM)
  6. Analysis – Vehicle data logging and analysis – Fully integrated HUMS devices (Health Monitoring Systems)  – Through life support – NDT and NDI facilities

Intern interpersonal qualities:

The intern’s interpersonal skills are as critical as are the technical elements relating to Mechanical / Electrical / Control Systems Engineering. The intern’s personal attributes should be aligned with our organisational values – passion, integrity, respect for others, innovative, and determination.  They should have well developed verbal and written communication skills, conflict resolution skills, “can do attitude”, self-motivated, friendly and personable and have an ability to connect to people.
