APL offers new college graduates a range of career opportunities in mechanical and aerospace engineering. As a new team member, you will work alongside the best and brightest in your field and make critical contributions to our nation's most critical challenges, right from the start.
Entry level opportunities exist in a number of technical areas including, but not limited to, the following:
Provide system engineering and technical support to ongoing programs involving military aviation systems, spacecraft, and unmanned aerial vehicles. Conduct propulsion RD to advance aeronautics technology and help design future systems.
Develop working models of mechanical and electronic systems for applications in nearly every frequency region. Applications may include control systems, microprocessor and computer systems, antennas, circuits, advanced radars, and flight-model satellites.
Provide signal processing and image analysis expertise. Analyze sensor design and requirements. Process recorded sensor signals from various systems and develop new processing techniques.
System Engineering and AnalysisDevelop mathematical models for system-level evaluation and parametric definition. Develop and conduct experiments with prototype components, subsystems, and total systems.
Modeling and Simulation
Perform physics-based modeling of complex thermal-fluidic and mechanical systems. Design high-fidelity, object-oriented system simulations and prototype decision support systems.
- BS, MS, or PhD in mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering or related field.
- GPA of 3.0 or higher (on 4.0 scale).
- Less than one year of full-time professional experience.
- U.S. citizenship will be required for most positions. Because government security clearance is required for most positions, selected applicants must meet eligibility requirements, which include U.S. citizenship.
