Mechanical Intern (Fall Internship: Aug - Dec 2024 OR Industrial Attachment/Internship: Jan - May 2025)


Graduates, Interns and Apprentices
Singapore - Advanced Manufacturing

About us

We are looking for Intern Mechanical Engineer to join Dyson Digital Motor (DDM) mechanical team, which is under Dyson Global Power Systems group, to deliver our next generation motors on time, on cost and on quality/reliability, and also continuous improvements of "in-production" motors to maximize category profit to support Dyson business excellence.

About the role

  • Best practice on design for DDM mechanical reliability and quality - Responsible for DDM mechanical robustness from component level, sub-assembly level to final assembly and also related processes from prototype to mass production. Well practice closed-loop reliability process, which including design, development, verification/validation, field performance and feeding back into next iteration of design.

  • Conduct physical mechanical verifications (motor life test, vibration, impact, environmental…) and other investigations to support project delivery on specifications.

  • Responsible for FRACAS (Failure Reporting, Analysis and Corrective Action System) – lead/support failure analysis, failure mechanism and root cause identification, and work with other teams (electronics team, operations quality team and engineering team etc) on design change, process improvement, quality control and corrective action implementation.

Our internship programme connects academic theory with practical experience. Gain valuable insights into professional applications through mentorships with our industry-leading experts and exposure to cutting-edge practices. Join us for a transformative journey where theory meets application, guided by the industry’s best minds!

About you

Technical skills

  • A well-rounded mix of experimental, theoretical and design skills. Use of ad-hoc hand calculations and investigative experiments to evaluate the concepts/ideas and to support engineering solutions/ decisions.

  • Solid knowledge of mechanical properties, failure mechanisms and processing of engineering materials (such as steel, aluminium, zinc, copper, thermoplastic, thermoset and carbon fibre composite).

  • Knowledge and experience of precision machinery design or complex mechanical assembly (such as HDD, brushless motors, turbochargers, turbines, compressors or related) in areas of vibration, noise, rotor balancing/dynamics, thermal and wear/ tear are advantageous.

  • Basic Six Sigma concepts, methodologies and tools (DMAIC/DMADV/MSA/DOE/FMEA etc) and have some data analysis skills.

  • Knowledge and hands-on experience of using Matlab and Labview for signal processing are advantageous.

  • Experience on ball bearing quality control and bearing related vibration/noise/reliability analysis and fault diagnosis is a plus.

  • Analytical skills with engineering software/tools, e.g. ANSYS, for structure / vibration / impact and other virtual verifications is a plus.

Soft skills

  • Strong “can-do” attitude and passion on taking challenges as opportunities.

  • Ability to manage multiple tasks and prioritize key activities according to project deliveries.

  • Able to work in a self-motivated way as well as in a team.
