Hunter Engineering

  • Electrical Engineering/Computer Engineering/Computer Science Co-op - Spring 2019

  • Overview

    Hunter Engineering Company is a global leader in the development and manufacturing of computer based automotive service equipment. We are in search of enthusiastic and self-motivated sophomores, juniors, or seniors with a major or minor in a field of study cohesive with Electrical Engineering and/or Computer Engineering.


    EE/CE Co-Ops gain experience in:

    Product Testing
    Execute a test plan under the direction of a project engineer, format the results in a useable and effective manner, analyze the results against stated objectives and write a report of the findings


    Computations and Calculations
    Perform engineering computations and calculations at the direction and review of a project engineer to include any of the following: analog circuits, low frequency through RF, digital timing, system analysis


    Assist in a building of a prototype by operating the various electronic hand and possibly machine tools and performing basic functions of that equipment


    Equipment Evaluation
    Assemble/tear down equipment (competitor’s and Hunter’s) for hands-on experience and for assisting the project engineer in competitor analysis and/or equipment operation


    Liaison Engineering
    Observe review meetings
    Discuss the concept and principles of manufacturability/producibility with the project engineer and the manufacturing engineer
    Assist and follow through to completion of an E.C.O.
    Discuss the concept and principles of cost estimating with a manufacturing engineer
    Assist and discuss an M.O.S.; review and observe, where possible, fabrication and assembly
    Discuss the liaison role and requirements of getting a design out of engineering into manufacturing


    Vendor Interface
    Observe a meeting between a project engineer and a vendor
    Source a part or material at the direction of a project engineer


    Quality Assurance
    Discuss the concept and principles of designing quality into a product
    Discuss/contrast the concept of quality assurance versus quality control
    Review some quality data and records on a given product or process
    Review our quality standards and procedures


    Engineering Documentation
    Review our standards manual and summarize the main principles in a brief written report
    Assist a project leader in preparing some portion of a final engineering specification
    Assist in preparing a bill of materials


    The individual will be involved in a variety of projects which may include:

    Electronic prototype construction and evaluation
    Software distribution, installation and configuration
    Test and evaluate prototypes
    Electronics and mechanical shop projects; real world experience
    Minor analysis and engineering calculations

    It will be our intent and purpose to provide the individual with real world experience, which includes assisting in the progression of a product from concept stage to production. This position will focus on exposing an aspiring electronic design engineer to the total product evolution process, including a first-hand, practical exposure to the manufacturing floor. Our goal is to provide an experience that will be an important, effective first step in the career of a future project engineer.


    Minimum 3.0 GPA
    Major studies in Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering
    Working knowledge of Microsoft Excel and PowerPoint
    Excellent communication skills.
