A good understanding of some of the disciplines listed below will be required.

  • Experience and the application of the generic and client specific design process' from concept through to detailed design and manufacture support
  • Proficient in 3D CAD, preferably Siemens NX, but also others are equally suitable.
  • Producing design justification through the use of analytical skills (hand calculations and/or FEA)
  • Excellent Report writing and communication skills

Experience in or knowledge of the following would be an advantage:

  • Nuclear power generation systems and equipment
  • Bespoke equipment design
  • Test facility design (static or rotating rigs)
  • Gas turbine engine or test facility design
