Mechanical Design Engineer

Posted 6 February by Manufacturing Futures
Deep Sea Oil Rigs, The Shard, The Gherkin, The Eiffel Tower (renovations) all modern miracles of construction made possible by advances in structural components and the way they are held together. The joint components look simple enough but the engineering behind them is complex involving stress calculations and Finite Element Analysis. Right now we are looking for a Design Engineer who can develop new components to support future ambitious projects both offshore and in more traditional construction settings.
