Job Description

Job Statement

The Design Engineer (DE) Aero-Structures develops solutions to a wide range of complex technical problems, requiring ingenuity and innovation. The DE is expected to be a principal contributor and/or leader in structural design efforts to include concept generation through final detailed design, substantiating the design through classical analytical techniques. The DE's primary deliverable will be detailed 3D models and 2D blueprints using Computer Aided Design (CAD) tools such as CATIA V5. The DE works in a Integrated Product Team (IPT) environment working with both external and internal customers.

Essential Functions

The following is a list of duties, tasks, work activities and/or functions the Design Engineer will/may be required to perform:

The DE will be responsible to read, assimilate, decompose and track compliance to requirements defining the design (geometry, interfaces, envelope, function, features, stress, materials, processes, environment, etc).

The DE will be responsible to model, detail, dimension and release detailed blueprints, using CATIA V4/5 or similar CAD tools, that adhere to company standards and satisfy the customer requirements. Design responsibility will include conceptual design through final released design.

The DE will be responsible to perform detailed tolerance stacks, basic stress analyses, select materials and define appropriate processes in support of defining and substantiating an end item that meets the customer requirements.

The Design Engineer (DE) will be responsible to work in an IPT environment including customers, internal team members and suppliers. A DE must be able to work collaboratively and communicate effectively to achieve the program goals.

The DE will participate in or lead reviews providing status and details of the design. The reviews will include Preliminary Design (PDR), Final Design (FDR/CDR), brainstorming and component level reviews. The DE may be required to formally present reviews to the customer, management, the IPT or peers.

The DE is expected to work closely with manufacturing engineering in developing processes, technologies or products.

Must perform other reasonable duties as assigned by supervision.


The following is a list of skills, abilities, training, education, experience, values, interests and /or talent the Design Engineer will be expected to posses and demonstrate:

A Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Engineering with a strong curriculum emphasis on structural design, analysis and mechanics of materials is required for the performance of the DE functions. An equivalent number of years of experience performing the essential job functions may be considered.

Five years of work experience in an aerospace structural airframe design environment is preferred but not required for the performance of many DE functions. However, understanding of aerospace design principles, specifications and processes as they apply to structural design is required.

Proficiency in the use of CATIA, Unigraphics and/or ProE CAD software is required for the performance of the DE functions.

Proficiency with Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GDT) and performing tolerance stack calculations is required.

Good understanding of manufacturing techniques including machining of materials and post machining processing is preferred.

The ability to estimate scope/size of a task, manage multiple tasks and work to a schedule is required

Must possess strong interpersonal and communication skills necessary to effectively interface with all levels of the IPT, including the ability to exchange detailed written and verbal information communicated in English

Must be proficient in the use of personal computers

Training and experience in Design for Six Sigma is considered to be highly advantageous in this role.

Must be willing to travel occasionally.
