Created in 2018 by bringing together Rockwell Collins and UTC Aerospace Systems, Collins Aerospace has the capabilities, comprehensive portfolio and expertise to solve customers' toughest challenges and to meet the demands of a rapidly evolving global market.

Collins Aerospace makes modern flight possible. Of course, that wouldn't be possible without the capabilities and technologies of our organization, as well as our engineers - a highly skilled, accomplished network that spans more than 180 sites, 24 countries and 6 Strategic Business Units (SBUs).

United Technologies Aerospace Systems is looking for a Mechanical Engineering Analyst to perform professional technical work which is complex in nature and requires in-depth knowledge and diversified application of mechanical engineering principles, theories, concepts, practices and techniques generally used to solve problems within a defined field of technology.

Primary duties may include:

1. Perform Mechanical Analyses. Analyze mechanical components and subsystems using both common application programs and more advanced programs such as NASTRAN, Thermal Desktop and PATRAN or Femap. Performs kinematic, dynamic, heat transfer and/or vibration analyses on one or more complex materials, structural components or functional systems. Perform trade studies and document results for presentation to senior program staff. Types of hardware analyzed will include aerospace structures, optomechanical assemblies and other electronics boxes and structures.

2. Provide Design Input. Provide design guidance for optomechanical and other structures based on experience as well as analysis results. Inputs should take into account program technical requirements as well as program cost, schedule and technical risk appetite.

3. Guide Test of Hardware. Provide input to optomechanical hardware test plans with particular focus on achieving correlation between test and analysis.

4. Maintain and Continuously Improve Group Optomechanical Analysis Knowledge Base. Plan and execute process for maintaining best practices and lessons learned for optomechanical specific analysis information. Coordinate and direct the work efforts of lower level engineers and support personnel, if assigned. Maintain up-to-date knowledge of developments in the analysis discipline. Suggest and plan initiatives to grow capability and knowledge when needed.

5. Document the Product Development. Generate, review and approve written reports supporting the design, analyses, and test of the product design including drawings, engineering specifications, and other associated documentation. Report on project status and progress measured against specific plans. Prepare design review packages and present data to both internal and external customers.

6. Implement Continuous Improvement. Implement the Mechanical Design Process in work plans, and adhere to our Quality System. Provide feedback to improve the process, and work to meet engineering objectives. Maintain up-to-date knowledge of developments in the mechanical engineering disciplines. Ensure cost effectiveness and manufacturability of design.

7. Perform Other Duties. Coordinate and direct the work efforts of lower level engineers and support personnel, if assigned. Assignments may include development of new techniques as a result of independent study, materials development and support of proposal efforts. Perform other duties and responsibilities as required.
