Fall 2021 (August – December) / 40 hours per week
Housing allowance available to eligible candidates
Please note: Due to the hands-on nature of this co-op, we expect the selected student to be working on-site all scheduled hours of the assignment. However, remote work requirements could be implemented at any time based on future pandemic developments.
As an Electrical Systems Engineering Co-Op, you will be treated as a self-sufficient entry-level engineer with an assigned mentor for support. You will be innovative and given the opportunity to design, analyze, and test more efficient and cost effective electrical systems for various models of fork trucks. You will be assigned projects requiring you to work with various teams within the organization in order to gain a better understanding of how the work you accomplish impacts other divisions of the business.
Your Key Skills & Qualifications:
- Currently pursuing a BS or MS in Electrical (Electronics) or Computer Science Engineering / Technology
- A strong desire to be hands-on and spend time in the development and test lab
- Ability to research electrical components and create circuit designs with senior engineering support
- Ability to successfully interface with a diverse group (i.e. electrical and software engineering and test lab staff)
- Analytical with a strong orientation towards research and problem-solving
- A working knowledge of CAD for schematic entry and simulation (SPICE, CREO schematic)
- A working knowledge of ARM processors and embedded C programming language and tools (16 & 32 bit)
- Strong communication skills – comfortable working with and presenting to a diverse audience
- Willingness to ask questions & be curious
- Research and design experiments (example: creating test fixture for key pads)
- Prototype electronic circuits and/or systems
- Design and develop prototype software for embedded micro-controllers
- Prototype hardware and software for circuit evaluation test equipment
Electrical Systems Engineering is a team that is responsible for the design of new products, options and features. Our department leads the research of emerging technologies (Energy, Telematics, Forklift Control Systems and Interfaces) and determines feasibility for application in Raymond products. These emerging technologies parallel typical circuits and systems found in automotive and commercial products. Design and development in the Electrical Systems group is accomplished using state-of-the-art lab equipment and software working with leading partners in the industry.
