This Pathways Intern position is for an engineering student trainee in the Mechanical Systems Design and Integration Branch located in the Materials and Structures Division of the Research and Engineering Directorate at the NASA Glenn Research Center (GRC). The Branch develops mechanical and structural designs for space flight hardware, aerospace research hardware, conceptual definition studies, and ground
support equipment. Key functions include providing computer aided design (CAD) and mechanical engineering to develop mechanical and structural systems from concepts to deliverable hardware, conducting preliminary analysis of design options and providing mechanical engineering expertise over a product life cycle to deliver a final, integrated product to a customer. Products include: integrated, mechanical/structural design solutions, solids models, first order stress analyses, detail, assembly and installation drawings, mechanical specification development, fluid schematics, tolerance stack-ups and geometric dimensioning and tolerance assessments.
The individual will be assigned tasks supporting the development of mechanical/structural designs for aerospace research hardware and should have an understanding of electrical design. The position will involve design engineering using CAD to develop both solid models and drawings for space flight and/or aeronautic research hardware. In addition, basic mechanical/structural analysis may be employed to validate initial concepts.
