Job Description

Systems Engineer – Winter/Spring Co-Op

The System Architecture Design and Integration Directorate (SADID) in Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems (IDS) is seeking candidates for January 2018 systems engineering co-op positions at Massachusetts sites (Andover, Tewksbury and Woburn). The exact work location will be determined during the interview process. The positions offer an opportunity for students from technical disciplines to gain work experience in the defense industry by contributing to the design and development of tactical defense systems at Raytheon. The ideal candidate has a declared engineering, math or science major, possesses strong analytical skills, and is interested in a career in the design of large scale electromechanical or software systems with defense applications.

Selected candidates would be hired for a paid co-op position starting in January 2018, with exact dates based on the candidate’s academic calendar.


Job Description

Specific job responsibilities will be designed to match the candidate’s technical interest and academic background, but will likely include algorithm development, performance assessment trade studies, and technical analysis of sensor signal and data processing subsystems. Co_op participants would join a team of Raytheon system engineers to become acclimated with Raytheon Engineering practices and processes. The candidate would develop and exercise engineering skills through Raytheon sponsored technical training, and by making individual technical contributions to one of IDS’s tactical defense programs or internal research and design initiatives.


All assignments will focus on developing the candidate’s competency and contribution to program requirements definition, model based systems engineering, sub-system integration and test, and systems architecture. Systems Engineers use MATLAB regularly to conduct data analyses, and are expected to document and present technical results using standard Microsoft Office tools. The engineer should be comfortable working independently and in a team environment.


Organization


The Systems Architecture Design and Integration Directorate (SADID) is the central focus for Mission Systems Integration activities within IDS. SADID provides system level design through requirements definition for complex, large scale defense applications. To support this activity, SADID employees are responsible for modeling and simulation efforts, system effectiveness and operational analysis, radar systems design, signal processing algorithm development, tracking, and discrimination.


SADID's core capabilities encompass a wide range of the key systems engineering competencies required for successful technical development and program execution. Our capabilities cover the entire lifecycle, including business capture, proposal development, system requirements development and technical design, as well as system integration and test support


Our general systems engineering expertise comprises architecting, requirements development, flow down and design, algorithm development, modeling and simulation, operations analysis and integration and test support. Areas of expertise are radar, sensor, battle management solutions, command and control, and cyber security.

What does a Systems Engineer do?

A Systems Engineer uses engineering and math skills to define the architecture of the system (the “pieces” and how they interact), the performance and functional requirements of the system (what the system must be capable of doing and how well), the subsystem design and requirements (what components are needed and how they must perform), and the integration of the components into the overall system. At Raytheon, Systems Engineers contribute to programs throughout the entire product development lifecycle, from inception to completion, and are applying model based systems engineering and architecture methods on many of today's most advanced-technology systems.

In support of design and requirements generation, the Systems Engineers also analyze the system’s operational capabilities through modeling and simulation tools. Systems Engineers are also involved in integration, string testing, fielding and operational tests.


U.S. Citizenship status is required as this position will need a U.S. Security Clearance within 1 year of start date.

Basic Qualifications:

Candidates must be currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate degree program with an emphasis in Systems Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Aerospace, Computer Science or Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Applied Mathematics, Physics or related technical field.

U.S. Citizenship is required.


Desired Qualifications:
  • Leadership or participation in college campus organizations, athletic teams, or community service groups
  • Strong analytical skills
  • Minimum 3.0 GPA
  • Relevant work or project experience in algorithm design, requirements development, software/hardware integration and configuration management
  • Familiarity with Microsoft Office toolset (Word, Powerpoint, Excel)
  • MATLAB experience
  • Programming experience in modern computer programming languages (JAVA, C++, C)
  • Engineering project, internship or co-op experience
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills
  • Educational background or interest in the following areas:
    • Signal Processing and Control theory
    • Model based engineering and architecture
    • Statistics, random processes and detection methods
    • Imaging / pattern recognition
    • Data filtering and processing techniques (e.g. Kalman, batch, optimal)
  • Ability to pursue information (“self-starter”)
  • Ability to work in a collaborative team environment
  • Authored Technical Papers and / or Technical Presentations

Become a key contributor to our SADID team!

All these job responsibilities are to be executed in harmony with Raytheon's Code of Business Ethics and Conduct policy which sets the standard by which we operate and how we treat others.

KEYWORDS:

Systems, cyber, algorithms, electrical engineering, Aerospace engineering, computer engineering, design, architecture, physics, sensor systems, software engineering, methods, MATLAB, computer programming, C++, Radar, algorithm, signal processing, control, random processes, detection methods, Pattern recognition, Imaging recognition, Kalman Filtering, Cyber, numerical methods, model based, scrum, sprint
