Specific tasks may include requirements development and comprehension.
concept development, trade study evaluation
3D modeling support, free body diagram generation, first order structural and thermal analysis
gear analysis, material assessment and selection
datum selection and application of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, tolerance analysis, margin analysis
support of drawing development, support of manufacturing process and build tooling development
support of test process and test equipment development and participation in design reviews.
Day-to-day activities are highly collaborative, both internally across disciplines as well as externally with suppliers.

Hands-on opportunity is plentiful, as great emphasis is put on exposing designers to the hardware through participation in prototype building and verification testing, thus enabling firsthand knowledge of system performance.
