Technology Development (Test Systems) Internship - Malaysia


Mechanical Engineering
Johor Bahru - Malaysia

About us

Research, Design and Development (RDD) is Dyson's engine room. It’s where our engineers challenge convention, build, test, fail, refine, and then fail again - all to invent technology that solves problems that others ignore. Join us as an intern and from day one you’ll be assigned to a project of your own with the chance to have a meaningful impact on the evolution of Dyson technology.

About the role

As an intern in the Test Systems team, you’ll be at the frontlines of problem solving. The Test Systems team is a unique team that employs a blend of Mechanical, Electronics, and Software knowledge to design and develop automated systems that enhance Dyson’s test and measurement capabilities. You’ll have the opportunity to apply the knowledge you’ve learnt in university, as well as grow and learn from experienced mentor(s) along the way. You’ll have your own set of project deliverables and the chance to take ownership of how these are achieved.

Some of your tasks could include:  

·       Conceptualising and developing automated test systems involving a blend of mechanical, electronics and software design

·       Integrating, installing and commissioning test systems in R&D and manufacturing environments

·       Creating analytic tools and/or models that could help to make analysis lean or solve specific problems 

·       Exposure to different test methods to verify product’s performance and systems engineering approach used in technology development team 

·       Gathering available data and analyse to find out root cause of problems and solve the problem 

·       Integrating 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 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 honours or above and be studying towards a Mechanical, Aerospace, Mechatronics, Electronics or related discipline 

·       Able to commit for at least 12 weeks  and graduating in August 2022

·       Be passionate about design and problem solving

·       Have knowledge or skills in any of the following (more would be an advantage):

·       Mechanical design using CAD

·       Electrical system design, custom PCBA design

·       Control engineering or electronic control systems

·       Programming using Python, Arduino, LabVIEW or other relevant languages

·       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 

·       Good interpersonal skills and able to present

·       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
