Internship Job Title: Reliability Intern
What is special about this team: I&S Process & Reliability is a function responsible to ensure products are designed for reliability through the product’s life expectancy. In order to guarantee a robust design, this team designs accelerated lifecycle test procedures and equipment to evaluate product performance before it truly experiences the expected product lifespan.
How would an intern contribute to the team’s success? Design for Reliability is a key factor in the development of high quality electro-mechanical products. Candidates will have the opportunity to work directly with design & reliability engineers on a project that will impact our products. Engineers determine and collect the right data to answer the right questions. This project will give the candidate an understanding of Accelerated Life Testing fundamentals. Good test & data planning, a thorough understanding of the difference between Qualitative vs Quantitative data and how to analyze each.
The reliability intern will be challenged to convert attribute techniques (pass/fail) with variable data collection systems in order to better predict design feature robustness. The equipment and the designs will require innovation and allow freedom to try outside the box methods.
An example of a typical project is: Our Interns work on a real-world opportunity with a project tailored to both our needs and the Intern’s skills. Projects may include a more data focused approach where you will develop an Accelerated Life Test (ALT) test method or Design of Experiments (DOE) to decrease testing time and collect appropriate data to be analyzed and draw conclusions. Another project may include a more equipment focused development of a test stand; utilizing LabVIEW to collect data and analyze. While other projects may focus on Machine Learning techniques to classify various waveshapes to analyze large datasets.
What skills and background will be important to be successful in this internship?
Desired Skills: data analytics, equipment design, board design, an Electrical Engineer candidate with demonstrated Leadership experience within a Student Org. or Sport. Bonus skills would include LabVIEW programming language, SQL language, MiniTAB
Desired Degree: Bachelors in Engineering, Sciences, Reliability or similar Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineer, or equivalent.
