Work for the undisputed leader in the Marine Industry! Mercury Marine, a Division of Brunswick Corporation based in Fond du Lac, WI, is a unique, fun and rewarding place to work. Our fast-paced, high-energy environment fosters professional growth and satisfaction while recognizing and valuing individual performance. If we can move boats through the water at record speeds, imagine what we can do for your career! The Design Analysis Group at Mercury Marine is looking for individuals with a strong interest in the following areas: (1) Fluid Dynamics / Heat Transfer, (2) Solid Mechanics / Mechanics of Materials / Vibrations, (3) Internal Combustion Engines / Engine Performance Prediction, (4) Electrical Systems. The scope of the co-op will be tailored to meet the interests of the candidate and it is possible to get exposure to multiple areas over the duration of the co-op term. Design Analysis co-ops will work on multiple projects, and it is typical for an analyst to complete 12-15 projects covering varying aspects of the engine during their co-op assignment. You will:
Individuals with a strong interest in electrical systems will use simulation software to drive development of electric components (motors, batteries, circuit boards, etc.) Simulation software utilized consists of 3D and 1D models, hybrid/co-simulation, and custom codes to create component and system level models.
Individuals with a strong interest in structures will learn to use FEA (Finite Element Analysis) software (Abaqus) to improve the strength and durability of marine engines and drive systems. Typical assignments will involve optimizing structural components of internal combustion engines and marine drive systems to reduce stress, maximize fatigue life, and minimize vibration.
