Title:  Thermal Engineer

Job duties:

  • Participate in meetings with clients to identify thermal design requirements and to propose work necessary to address customer needs.
  • Complete thermal design and analysis work for customers who design equipment for telecommunication environments and data centers as well as for consumer products.
  • Perform computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis using FloTHERM, FloTHERM XT, and Ansys ICEPAK for complicated thermal systems to guide design.
  • Design and implementation of test plans for specific customer designs.
  • Carry out thermal testing using an airflow bench, thermocouples, pressure gauges, flow meters, data acquisition tools and other lab equipment.
  • Generation of test reports according to customer requirements.
  • Review and conduct mechanical design using PTC Creo and Dassault Systemes SolidWorks.
  • Participate in generating material that will be presented at technical conferences and forums.


Minimum Requirements:

Master’s degree or foreign equivalent degree in Mechanical Engineering or Aerospace Engineering and 6 months as Thermal Engineer, Research Assistant, Teaching Assistant, Mechanical Engineer, or a related occupation required. 3 graduate-level mechanical engineering courses in thermal science required. Employer accepts full-time or equivalent part-time experience (including academic research experience) gained before, after or during graduate studies.

The required experience must include 6 months of experience in thermal science with the following:

  • Building computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations using FloTHERM, FloTHERM XT, and Ansys ICEPAK to perform thermal analysis to guide design;
  • Thermal testing methodologies including use of lab equipment, power meters, data acquisition tools such as the Keysight 34970A Data Logger and the National Instruments LabVIEW;
  • Using thermocouples, pressure gauges and flow meters;
  • Using airflow benches to measure volumetric air flow; and
  • Using mechanical design tools (PTC Creo and Dassault Systemes SolidWorks) to conduct mechanical design.
