Department Overview

The Compression Systems Engineering (CSE) Advanced Engine Programs (AEP) Mechanical Design team is seeking mechanical engineering professionals to join our team. Knowledge or Experience in gas turbine engineering is preferred, but any with complex machinery and assemblies may be acceptable.

Advanced Engine Programs is a dynamic and exciting environment. Unlike most other groups in the organization AEP covers all Fan & Compressor hardware nosecone/spinner to diffuser. Tasks are both Commercial and Military/Government in origin and work involves leveraging both forms for overall PW improvements.

Today’s best and newest processes are utilized, while improving them. Current year tasks have involved use of RAPID tool set and Agile operation methods, in advanced studies for many customers. A key skill is the ability to perform a task with limited input and willingness to perform again and again as new input and options are defined. During iterations work will require leveraging prior results and refining process to improve.

If you have ever wondered why a Concept Design or Configuration appears the way it is, this assignment will help you understand the considerations, trades and complexities that go into it. It will also provide the opportunity to shape the engine architecture of the future. Studies and discussions of new technologies for extension of existing applications as well as future flight configurations are likely to form a part of your assignments.

This is a Technology group, whereby definition, new ESW is explored and defined. Assignments are challenging but open for innovation and creativity. Most engineers in this role sponsor or are involved in generation of Intellectual Property (IP). Tasks include establishing new concepts and the defining of rigs and applications to validate and utilize them.
