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.
