Internship Opportunity

Reference no: 2023.78T

Location: Glebe, NSW

Engineering areas: Robotics, Software and Systems

Business description:

Our company is building the next generation of advanced robotic arms. We design, test, and manufacture advanced robotic arm solutions for harsh environments such as underwater, nuclear, and land. Our high quality, state-of-the-art robotic manipulators help operators push the boundaries of inspection and intervention. Our customers include military organisations, service providers for the oil and gas industry conducting pipe and tank inspections, marine scientists, and the autonomous robotics research community.

Projects / tasks:

During an internship with our company, you will get exposure to the most advanced robotic arms in the world and be given opportunities to understand them further from a mechanical, electrical, software, or mechatronics perspective, depending on your engineering discipline and interests. Tasks in the internship will include:

  • Mechanical Design of new components in CAD Software, Software Design of new Interface Features, Electrical Design of new circuitry
  • Manufacturing prototypes via 3D printing and machining.
  • Testing these prototypes against your assumptions.
  • Production verification of our product range
  • Real-world testing. Deploy and test our robotic arms on real vehicles.
  • Ad hoc engineering for design modifications and other activities
  • Presentation of ideas to the wider team

Participation in weekly team catch-ups, communicating your current work including trials and triumphs.

Technical skills:

  • Skill/Discipline Options:
  • Mechanical (Solidworks or similar CAD knowledge)
  • Electrical (Altium or similar PCB software)
  • Software (Python and/or C++)
  • Mechatronics (Control Theory etc.)

Intern interpersonal qualities:

A sense of real passion, usually demonstrated through a portfolio or example home project outside of their university degree. Proactive Critical Thinking Creativity.
