Job Summary

This engineering intern will be responsible for providing System Safety support to Collins Aerospace Government Systems new development programs, including functional and intrinsic hazard analysis and review of engineering change requests for safety impact. All under the supervision and mentorship of a subject matter expert (SME) in this field of engineering.

Initially, this intern would be dedicated to performing limited hazard analysis tasks. The objective of hazard analysis is to identify potential undesired events and manage the associated safety risks to acceptable levels. Functional hazard analysis systematically identifies system functions, ways those functions can fail and the consequences of the failure. It then scores safety risk based on estimated failure rates and fault tree analysis. Where unacceptable risks exist, additional hazard mitigations are introduced. Intrinsic hazard analysis identifies hazards inherent to the equipment hardware itself, such as electrical, mechanical, radiation, or hazardous materials. These hazards are primarily managed via design compliance to applicable safety design standards.
