Aircraft Protection Systems Hardware/Systems Engineering Co-Op Fall 2020- ELSYS
Type: Students: Co-op
Location: Smyrna, GA
GTRI’s Co-operative Education (“co-op”) program offers you extensive opportunities to participate in diverse scientific and technological endeavors, use state of-the-art equipment and rapidly improve your technical and leadership skills. The program allows you to alternate three semesters of full-time work at GTRI with semesters of full-time school.
TEN researches next generation Aircraft Protection systems used to shield US and coalition aircraft from adversary radar and missile systems. These complex systems provide advance detection of adversary systems which enable aircraft to avoid or counter these systems and return home safely.
The Electronic Systems Laboratory (ELSYS) seeks Co-ops in the Test Engineering Division (TEN) for the Fall of 2020.
This broad range of research will provide a solid foundation for the student as a future hardware engineer. The students will work under the guidance of GTRI researchers performing research in one of the following areas:
• Sensing and processing broad bands of the electromagnetic spectrum
• Creating a complex electromagnetic environment used to test Aircraft Protection systems
• Using Machine Learning for data analysis applications
Student Researchers will perform one or more of the following activities:
• Digital, analog, and embedded hardware design
• System engineering
• Hardware fabrication, test and debug for Hardware in the Loop (HITL) systems
Required Minimum Qualifications
• Pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering or related field
• Must have a 3.0 or higher GPA
• Must be registered for co-op credit with your university
• Must be eligible to be approved by your college/university to participate in a co-op program and register for co-op credit with your university during work terms. The first work term will begin in August 2020.
