Knowledge

  • CAE software

    The software to perform computer-aided engineering (CAE) analysis tasks such as Finite Element Analysis and Computional Fluid Dynamics.

  • Engineering processes

    The systematic approach to the development and maintenance of engineering systems.

  • Engineering principles

    The engineering elements like functionality, replicability, and costs in relation to the design and how they are applied in the completion of engineering projects.

  • Pneumatics

    The application of pressurised gas to produce mechanical motion.

Skills

  • Read engineering drawings

    Read the technical drawings of a product made by the engineer in order to suggest improvements, make models of the product or operate it.

  • Create solutions to problems

    Solve problems which arise in planning, prioritising, organising, directing/facilitating action and evaluating performance. Use systematic processes of collecting, analysing, and synthesising information to evaluate current practice and generate new understandings about practice.

  • Adjust engineering designs

    Adjust designs of products or parts of products so that they meet requirements.

  • Liaise with engineers

    Collaborate with engineers to ensure common understanding and discuss product design, development and improvement.

  • Record test data

    Record data which has been identified specifically during preceding tests in order to verify that outputs of the test produce specific results or to review the reaction of the subject under exceptional or unusual input.

  • Conduct routine machinery checks

    Check machinery and equipment to ensure reliable performance during use and operations in worksites.

  • Perform maintenance on installed equipment

    Perform the maintenance on installed equipment on-site. Follow procedures to avoid uninstalling equipment from machinery or vehicles.
