MITRE- Systems / Mechanical / Aerospace Engineering and Physics Intern and New Grad
MITRE’s mission-driven teams are dedicated to solving problems for a safer world. Through our public-private partnerships and federally funded R&D centers, we work across government and in partnership with industry to tackle challenges to the safety, stability, and well-being of our nation.
Our inclusive and diverse workforce takes advantage of this collaborative environment to approach the toughest challenges with creativity and technical rigor. While MITRE hires interns and graduates from a variety of STEM backgrounds, we are also interested in hiring skilled critical and alternative thinkers with majors and experiences outside of STEM, in particular the behavioral sciences, business strategy and data-driven health fields.
What do Systems / Mechanical / Aerospace Engineering and Physics Interns do?
As a Systems, Mechanical, or Aerospace Intern, you will work with a multidisciplinary team of experienced engineers on the development of a complex ground, airborne, or shipboard electronic systems. Working with a mentor, our interns participate in projects performing research, analysis, synthesis of data, trade studies, requirements development, concept of operations, prototyping, and risk reductions.
What are some examples of tasks?
·Identify operational or technical gaps in current systems and recommend mitigations for fielded or new systems in development
·Identify opportunities to apply emerging technology to the current domain
·Develop and present prototypes and system models to help customers frame emerging technology trends to increase affordability, efficiency, and effectiveness
·Engage in system concept development, requirements engineering, system architecture development and evaluation, and test strategy development
·Use modeling and simulation tools to independently assess performance of techniques and architectures
·Present technical recommendations to government program office customers
What does MITRE look for in their early career Systems / Mechanical / Aerospace Engineering and Physics Intern?
·Currently pursuing a Bachelors, Masters or PhD degree in Systems Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Physics, or similar field. In some cases, high school students may be considered
·Systems Modeling Language (SysML) and/or Unified Modeling Language (UML)
·Experience with Digital Engineering
·Experience with Model-based Systems Engineering (MBSE)
·Science & Technology (S&T) capability assessments, trade studies, and analysis of alternatives
·Sustained excellence in academic performance
·Ability to work collaboratively in a team environment
·Effective written and verbal communication skills
·Demonstrates the characteristics of a continuous learner
·Desire to help our nation solve its most critical problems
We are seeking Software Engineering candidates at our main campuses in Bedford, MA and McLean, VA, and also at a variety of site locations including, but not limited to Colorado Springs, CO; San Diego, CA; Aberdeen, MD; Eatontown, NJ; Hampton Roads, VA; and Tampa, FL.
Due to the nature of our work, MITRE can only hire those authorized to work permanently in the U.S. and who do not require employer sponsorship either now or in the future.
