  • A working culture based on a philosophy that balances the individual's success and growth on an equal footing to that of the company
  • A long history of providing the U.S. Navy with elite engines that have propelled it forward for decades, built by generations of veterans.

As an Analytical Engineer at Fairbanks Morse, you will utilize your knowledge and skills to help solve problems related to the design of new hardware, failure investigations of existing hardware, concept evaluations, and more. You will be working on pistons, connecting rods, crankshafts, bearings and anything that is inside an engine, ensuring the materials last the lifetime of the engine. Using computer aided engineering (CAE) software packages and calculation tools, you will analyze medium speed internal combustion engine systems and hardware. Looking at the data, you will understand the forces and stresses on the components and be able to design for longevity of the equipment.

Within this position, you will focus on a variety of tasks, including:
  • Partnering with the design engineers to create new parts of systems, run stress tests, and understand how they will perform through the life of the engine
  • Evaluating mechanical design of various engine components and systems using advanced engineering methods
  • Utilizing commercial 1D and 3D software packages to analyze mechanical systems and components, and providing guidance and recommendations that fit program constraints
  • Leading seismic qualification of engine components, auxiliary equipment, and piping to meet the requirements of nuclear and commercial genset installations
  • Leading shock qualification of engine and auxiliary equipment to meet US Navy shock requirements
  • Participating in shock and vibration testing by writing test procedures, witnessing tests and writing test reports
  • Helping coordinate analysis projects that are executed outside of FM, and evaluating external results for validity
  • Building and maintaining centrally located analysis reports and models (from both internal and external sources)
  • Standardizing and coordinating application of best-practice analysis guidelines
  • Helping develop roadmap for hardware and software infrastructure needs for current and future analysis plans

What are we looking for?
  • Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering, or a related field such as Biological Systems Engineering or Engineering Mechanics and Aeronautics
  • 1+ years of experience in an engineering analysis role solving problems in solid mechanics, dynamics, or thermal-fluids systems, including
    • Stress analysis experience using Finite Element Modeling (FEM) and hand calculations
    • The use of 1D and 3D Finite Element Analysis (FEA) tools such as ANSYS or Siemens
    • Working with 3D modeling design tools such as SolidWorks, Pro-E, Unigraphics, or Catia
  • Proficiency with the Microsoft Office Suite
  • The ability to work independently and think creatively
  • Excellent organizational, interpersonal and communication skills both written and verbal

What would make you stand out?
  • Master of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering or a Professional Engineering certification (EIT or FE)
  • 1+ years of experience with MATLAB, MathCAD or Maple
  • An understanding of complex mechanic engineering systems and components with diesel engine design or development

This position requires access or potential access to Unclassified Naval Nuclear Propulsion Information, which is Not Releasable to Foreign Nationals (NOFORN) data.
