Are you an experienced structural engineer looking to make a meaningful impact that you just can’t find in legacy aerospace companies? Have you ever dreamed of crafting a clean-sheet aerial vehicle system? Would you like to deliver a significant percentage of key structural elements for a new product design? If so, you might be a good fit for the team in a Structural Engineer role here at Okulo Aerospace!
Perform structural analysis using standard FEA packages. Optimise designs based on the results from FEA analysis.
Conduct hand calculations of basic aircraft structures (wings, spars, etc.).
Work with the manufacturing team to realise designed structural elements.
Devise testing methodologies to validate and verify the results obtained.
Basic Qualifications and Experience Required:
Masters/PhD in Aerospace or Mechanical Engineering (or) bachelor’s in aerospace/mechanical with experience of a minimum of 3 years.
Proved experience in FEA model preparation (GFEM/DFEM) and stress analysis.
Composite FEA knowledge and experience.
Fatigue analysis and/or aeroelastic analysis (optional)
Knowledge of structural design as per aviation certification standards (optional).
Ability to work collaboratively in interdisciplinary teams, to ambitious deadlines, and under minimal supervision.
A highly motivated and focused individual with excellent communication skills.
Possess excellent technical writing skills and create documentation for design reviews and company records.
Should have strong fundamentals in:
Aircraft structures: Hand calculations of aircraft structural components such as spars and ribs. Best practices for optimising aircraft structures.
