Part-Time Student-Dynamic Systems Modeling Engineer-Ames IA

Your Responsibilities

This job posting will fill multiple part-time student positions within the John Deere Engineering organization.  The work will entail modeling physical systems such as hydraulics, electrical circuits, and controls systems in Matlab/Simulink/SimScape.  In this role you will work with design engineers, embedded engineers, and control engineers to tackle some of the most challenging problems at John Deere.  You will use simulation to architect, optimize and develop the very best design possible for our customers.  If you are interested in a challenging role that will provide you with an opportunity to directly work on the products that feed the world this would be a position for you.  The work location will primarily be in Ames, IA but will collaborate with platform teams from various locations and product lines (such as Crop Harvesting, Crop Care, Tractors, and Intelligent Solutions Group-ISG).

  • Effectively communicate and work in a team environment
  • Propose or evaluate design solutions to improve cost, quality, and performance
  • Develop dynamic performance specifications using simulation. (MATLAB, Simscape, Simulink)
  • Apply technical knowledge to identify and resolve design weaknesses and issues
  • Assess lab and field event data for impact on product reliability
  • Contribute to enterprise-wide activities and strategies related to Dynamic Systems Modeling (DSM) and analysis

What Skills You Need

  • Ideally you will be pursuing a degree in Mechanical, Electrical, Computer/Software, Industrial, or Agricultural Engineering, or equivalent; others may apply
  • Must be registered as a full-time student at Iowa State University (ISU)
  • Graduation date of May 2023 or later
  • Cumulative GPA of 3.4 or above
  • Available to work 10-20 hours/week during the academic year
  • Available to work 40 hours/week during the summer
  • Available to commute to the work location in Ames, Iowa, year-round
  • Strong understanding and intuition for physics and dynamics
  • Effective communication skills both oral and written
  • Strong problem-solving skills and inquisitive nature for resolving complex problems
