Technology Development (Haircare) Internships - Malaysia


Graduates, Interns and Apprentices
Malaysia - Development Centre

About us

The SEA Materials team in Dyson supports Research, Design and Development (RDD) to define the plastic parts requirements (PRS), identify and source the most appropriate material grade to meet those requirements and then verify/validate those parts together with RDD, Tooling and Test. 

Join us as an intern and from day one, you’ll be assigned to support a live project that will enable you to go through the material specification development process and how it interacts with other teams to define/verify/optimize the parts performances requirements meeting the Dyson final product specification.

As part of the Malaysia Development Centre (MDC) Technology Development Materials team, you will experience the fast-paced project development process, including working together with other teams from across the business as well as material suppliers to ensure the project material readiness deliverables are closed in a timely manner and reported to stakeholders.

About the role

When you join us as a Material intern, you’ll be assigned to support a live project under the lead Material engineer in-charge of that project.

You’ll be expected to participate in all meetings with the RDD team to go through the PRS review process and to understand how the material specification development process works. Working as part of a larger Material team projects, you’ll have your own set of material project deliverables and the chance to take ownership on how these material deliverables are achieved.

Some of your tasks could include:

  • Conceptualizing, developing and proposing multiple criterion material search scenarios to optimize material selections

  • Developing an analytic and critical thinking mindset in the material datasheet review process

  • Using multiple criterion material search tools and data analysis to help to make the right material selection to address critical part requirements precisely

  • Exposure to many material test methods to verify material performance both in plaques and parts/assembled level

  • Conducting material tests, analysing the data and proposing appropriate material grades which meet the PRS requirements

  • Identifying materials that address particular material related problems from Production or Markets

  • Integrate into the day-to-day operation of the team

About you

Working at the forefront of technology is tough so standards and expectations are high. You’ll be contributing to live projects from the start so you’ll need to be curious, hungry to learn and ready to get stuck in. But it’s not just about technical expertise. Our internships are competitive and delivering the next generation of Dyson technology is tough, so you’ll need to:

  • On track for 2nd upper class honors or above and be studying towards a bachelor's degree in Chemistry, Polymeric Material Science or Engineering, Chemical Engineering or related discipline

  • Able to commit for at least 12 weeks and graduating in August 2023

  • Be passionate about Material chemical/mechanical analysis and understand fundamental principles in injection molding process, ASTM/ISO Material testing standards and Material Failure analysis.

  • Able to evidence how you have applied your technical knowledge to solve problems, either through your university projects or as part of your extra-curricular activities

  • Happy to build your own networks to learn from the technical expertise around you

  • Creative in your approach to problem solving to ensure our machines are better

  • Passionate about Dyson and our technology to help us meet our ambitious future plans


Please upload your (1) detailed resume and (2) latest academic transcript (all semesters inclusive) in a single file together with your online application.

Please note that you should only apply to one internship position as multiple applications will delay the selection process. We will consider you for another internship role should you have the relevant skillset or experience.


Professional growth, leadership development and new opportunities abound, driven by regular reviews and dynamic workshops.
