Internship - Mechatronics

Competitive

senai, Johor, Malaysia

Description

    The Mechatronics Engineer will work with our world class product designers, electronics engineers and software specialists to design and develop mechatronic systems in our R&D projects. The role of the Mechatronics Engineer will be top secret, interesting and varied but he/she will typically be assigned to a development project and they’ll be responsible for specifying, developing, testing, analysing and improving important electro-mechanical systems within our new consumer products.

      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.

      Not many global technology companies can say they’re still led by the founder. But we can. The same man who invented the first bagless vacuum, who persevered for 15 years to sell his idea, then took on Hoover when they stole it. And the same man who, as our Chief Engineer, has personally overseen every Dyson invention since.

      James Dyson still defines the spirit of Dyson today. His entrepreneurial edge and tenacity guide our fighting spirit. Still family owned, we’re fiercely independent. Who we are and what we invent is down to us, and us alone. And we remain committed to keeping it this way.

      Much has changed since James Dyson launched the bagless vacuum that started our business. In the time since, Dyson engineers have invented heat-free hand dryers, bladeless fans, long-life LED lighting and even our own digital motor.

      Today, vacuums represent just half of our sales. And Dyson has even broader ambitions still. With a future technology pipeline spanning 25 years, the next few are set to be our busiest yet. 3,000 new people. 100 new machines. And four brand new product categories by 2020. So get ready for the next big thing.

      Why put up with vacuum bags that diminish suction? Why labour drying hands with slow, energy-hungry machines? Why should fans use blades or lightbulbs fail so fast? There’s always a better way. And at Dyson, our mission is to find it. Solving old problems with new thinking, to invent machines that work better.

      But innovation isn’t easy. Our engineers experiment relentlessly, persevere through failure, and search for answers in unlikely places. And, to put the technology they invent into our owners’ hands, Dyson commercial people do exactly the same. Defying convention. From source, to shop.

      Market Overview

      In 2000, Dyson moved production from Malmesbury to Malaysia to be closer to our supply chains and open up international growth. The small team of 10 has now grown to almost 1,200 – forming Dyson’s second biggest global hub. Located in the exhilarating industrial heart of Johor, it’s also home to RDD, IT, operations,  finance, creative and HR.
      The RDD facility is central to our plans to launch 100 new machines in the next four years. To meet these ambitions, we recently expanded the site to 30,000m², with 50 advanced technology labs and 700 new engineers. In the Dyson world, there’s no more exciting place to be.

      Function Overview

      Ambition, inventiveness, tenacity, courage. Some of the traits we look for can’t be learnt in a university lecture hall. If you’ve got them, we don’t need to wait for a degree. Dyson’s Early Talent programmes are for people ready for the real world. Earning while you learn, free of student debt, doing real work not theoretical exercises, you’ll achieve industry-recognized qualifications and priceless work experience. As an engineering apprentice, you’ll work in our manufacturing team, supporting over 1,000 Dyson engineers turning ideas into ground-breaking technology. You’ll help build prototype parts that lead to better, more cost-effective products. And further down the line, you’ll be given more responsibility to help us invent the technology of the future.

      Accountabilities

      Specify, develop, test, analyse and improve new mechatronic systems in our R&D projects
      Use common signal acquisition, data analysis and simulation techniques to measure a design’s performance
      Creating diagram model of given products, describing their requirement / functions / systems and working closely with the respective technical experts in engineering. You will work with various interconnected functions in engineering and enjoy solving engineering problems. Main functions areas you will influence include Fluid Dynamics, Acoustic, Thermodynamics, Structural mechanics, Motors, Filtrations and Pick up.

      Skills

      A smart, intelligent 3rd or 4th year student in mechatronics, mechanical or electronics engineering – CGPA equal to or greater than 3.5.
      You have analytical and hands on approach to problem solving, an interest in all aspects of engineering and a desire to broaden your skill set.
      You possess excellent communication skills and ability to present technical information to higher management.
      You have good planning and workload management skills and ability to work autonomously.
      Experience of using electronics, software and electro-mechanical sensors, actuators, and signal acquisition/analysis techniques in the academic project.
      Able to specify experimental programmes and effectively analyse results, summaries findings and make recommendations

       

      Benefits Overview
