Carnegie Robotics seeks outstanding students for our internships and co-ops. We view internships as excellent opportunities for us to learn about future potential full-time hires while also contributing to students' education and their understanding of work practices in an engineering setting. Many of our interns return annually and take on ever more challenging tasks.
We accept college sophomore, junior, senior, masters and PhD level students. In all cases we expect to see excellent grades, work ethic and a strong desire to accomplish goals. We pay well and will push you well beyond your comfort zone.
Mechanical Engineering Interns will be treated as junior engineers on development teams and will assist and work on the following aspects of development projects:
Conduct ground-up design of production tooling emphasizing speed and ease-of-use
Conduct thermal, shock, vibration, and optical testing on new designs and recommend redesign based on test results
Test off-the-shelf components (adhesives, thermal interface materials, optical filters, etc) for performance, and present test results to staff engineers and customers
Design internal camera components for manufacturability and functionality
Conceptualize new product designs
Perform stress analysis and thermal analysis on new designs
Provide staff engineers with feedback on designs during internal design reviews
Participate in customer-facing design reviews
Redesign current components for a new design goal, e.g. strong and lightweight, or high thermal stability, or repeatability of installation
Perform statistical analysis to assess whether tolerance stack-ups are acceptable.
