Aerojet Rocketdyne is a world:recognized aerospace and defense leader providing propulsion and energetics to its space, missile defense, strategic, tactical missile and armaments customers throughout domestic and international markets. We offer a complete line of propulsion products for launch vehicles, missile defense, and advanced hypersonic propulsion. Aerojet Rocketdyne seeks an Associate Mechanical Design Engineer to join our engineering design team in Canoga Park, CA (Los Angeles area).This position starts in May/June 2017. In this role, you will utilize mechanical design skills that will be applied in designing and solving issues in the development of valves, injectors, preburner and gas generators, chambers or nozzles for large liquid rocket engines. Working under the guidance of senior staff, the candidate will support component design and integration of large liquid rocket engine components used in high pressure, extreme environment applications, such as valves, injectors, preburner and gas generators, chambers and nozzles.Under close supervision, the Associate Engineer will perform mechanical design engineering assignments requiring application of advanced principles, theories and concepts to develop propulsion hardware for spacecraft and missile programs. 50 : Perform design tasks that contribute to the development of component systems for high pressure and extreme environment applications. Interpret engineering models and drawings and perform tolerance studies. Evaluate technical input from hardware suppliers and work with a cross functional team on producibility improvements and cost savings. Candidate will participate in trade studies and preliminary design using 3D CAD models. 20 : Perform or coordinate thermal and structural analysis for predicting component and system level performance in the design of the products. Interacts with manufacturing to assure hardware is producible. 20 : Prepare engineering drawings with associated geometric dimensioning and tolerancing in accordance with ASME Y14.5 standards. Actively participate in team meetings to assure design content for new or modified engineering designs. Prepares CAD files for team approval and monitors design release. 10 : Prepare presentations for internal and external customers. Responsible for preparing engineering reports to support tolerance studies, engineering analyses, or failure investigations, including technical close:out reports.Requires a Bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering or an appropriate discipline (or an equivalent combination of education and experience). Must be able to obtain and maintain a U.S. Security Clearance at the appropriate level (US Citizenship required). Additional Requirements and Preferred Qualifications:General understanding of manufacturing processes (welding, brazing, machining, heat treating) is necessary.Proficient with Microsoft Office products (Word, Excel and PowerPoint) is also needed.Strong mechanical engineering background with knowledge and understanding of fluid flow principles.An advanced degree or coursework toward an advanced degree is a plus.Working knowledge of CREO Pro:Engineer CAD geometry:based modeling is desired.Experience in the design and development of mechanical systems and working knowledge of ANSI Y14.5 is desired.Experience with aerospace valves, injectors, preburner and gas generators, chambers or nozzles is beneficial.General component and system level knowledge of rocket propulsion hardware is desirable.Work Environment/Physical Requirements:Employees in these positions must possess mobility to work in a standard office setting and to use standard office equipment, including a computer; stamina to sit or stand and maintain attention to detail despite interruptions; may occasionally lift/carry/push/pull up to 25 pounds; may require occasional walking, climbing, stooping, crouching, and/or bending; and vision to read printed materials and a computer screen, and hearing and speech
