Singapore (SIN), Singapore

Description

Dyson opened its new Singapore Technology Centre earlier this year. In this ambitious, top secret centre, some of the world’s brightest engineering minds continually push the boundaries of science & technology.


Dyson Overview


Things move quickly at Dyson. In twenty years, what began with one man and one idea has grown into a global technology company, with 6,000 people and a presence in over 70 countries. From Malmesbury to Malaysia to the US to Australasia and many countries in between, we’ve sold over 80 million machines.

And it’s just the start. From 2016 our Malmesbury HQ is doubling its footprint. The US, our biggest market, is doubling their sales scope. And new frontiers are opening up across South East Asia and beyond. More people, more ideas and more space for more invention. The next four years will be our biggest and busiest yet.

Market Overview

Our Singapore story began in 2004 and today we have more than 1000 people working here. At the beginning of 2017 we opened our new, state of the art, Singapore Technology Centre in Science Park I, minutes from Singapore’s technology and start-up community. This new Technology Centre houses some of Dyson’s most advanced facilities including Robotics and Sensors laboratories and Smart Home, Connectivity & Mobile Applications laboratories as well as an Advanced Control Tower with the latest technology to develop its analytics-driven activities.

Not too far away is West Park, our flagship advanced motor manufacturing facility where we develop our autonomous robotic manufacturing capabilities – more than 300 robots assemble our Dyson Digital Motor (DDM) here. It is here that we develop our next generation of motor technology. 


Function Overview

RDD is the heart of Dyson. It’s where we invent technology that solves problems. Our engineers challenge convention, build, test, fail, refine, fail again. To be different takes courage as well as creativity.

Based in  SIngapore, you’ll be part of a 1,700-strong global team of engineers and scientists. From day one you’ll be working on top secret projects using cutting edge machinery. Whichever area you join we’ll support your development, helping you understand the business and grow into the role. And the rest is up to you. You can help shape the next generation of Dyson technology.


Accountabilities


Having launched the Supersonic recently, there is a requirement to improve the efficiency and accuracy of the temperature mapping test method in order to cater to growing demands of the test. One area that can be improved is the processing of thermal images, automation and the removal of the “human factor” in this analysis will increase robustness and throughput of this test, not to mention the strain relief on the eyes from scanning hundreds of thermal images.


Goals:

  • Understanding how thermal imagery works

  • Determining parameters that will affect accuracy of test result (experiments should be carried out to determine accuracy)

  • Writing a labview code to reduce time required for processing thermal images


The candidate will be expected to write a labview code to reduce time used to sort & process thermal images generated during the test. The candidate must also design and perform experiments to verify hypothesis made through research, with opportunities to present hers/his findings at group meetings. At the end of the internship, a report summarizing his/her findings should be generated.




Skills


  • Mechanical engineering background
  • Labview proficiency: Key project involves writing a code to process thermal images taken using the thermal camera
  • Proactive and self-motivated





Benefits Overview

Professional growth, leadership development and new opportunities abound, driven by regular reviews and dynamic workshops. And with a vibrant culture, the latest devices and a relaxed dress code reflecting our engineering spirit, it’s an exciting team environment geared to fuelling and realising ambition.
