Part time / Full time
In line with Safran's vision for the More Electric Aircraft, SAFRAN Electric & Power division is responsible for becoming a world-class developer and manufacturer of Ram Air Turbine (RAT) Systems for use in aerospace emergency power generation, in addition to continuing our legacy as a premier supplier of electric power generation systems.
We are looking for co-ops in the Winter/Spring 2018 terms in addition to the Summer 2018. Please indicate on your resume or application which term you would be available.
Safran recently developed a new product line of ram air turbines. After several years of work, many tools were created to facilitate design and analysis of this system. This wide range of tools includes in-house developed Excel spreadsheets and macros, Python codes, Matlab codes and batch scripts for SolidWorks and Ansys. Most of these tools have been developed with automation in mind and the ability to run Design of Experiments. However, these tools were not developed by Computer Engineers and therefore lack in efficiency, performance, upgradability and user-friendliness.
A number of tools are still in development, such as an in-house Wi-Fi telemetry system for high speed rotating machinery as well as parametric models for CAD and Power Electronic simulations.
In order to fully be able to take advantage of these tools there is a need to harmonize, optimize and integrate these tools together. The Ram Air Turbine team is innovating in terms of tool creation and automation, which lead to the need of having a more structured framework for their development and expertise in software engineering.
2. Scope of work:
• Support the development, upgrade and clean-up of the numerous engineering tools available in the RAT Team.
• Provide guidance on best practices and implement procedures for the development of engineering tools.
• Understand the needs of the team and imagine and develop new tools to improve efficiency and throughput of the RAT team (automation, added capabilities).
• Support the creation of tool related documentation (technical notes and user interface documentation)
• Apply continuous improvement principles to increase efficiency and product innovation.
• Regular, predictable attendance is required
