  • You have a practical knowledge of mechanisms, materials, coatings and manufacturing techniques, and can support your designs with basic functional, structural, and thermal analysis.
  • You are a team player and like to take initiative, you see a problem as challenges.
  • Having experience in 3D modelling (Pro/e) is an asset.
