Mechanical Engineering Fall Co-op Opportunity with Emerson Industrial Automotive
Kop-Flex, operating since 1926, is a division of the Emerson Electric Co. which manufactures flexible rotating couplings for industrial applications. Located just 9 miles from UMBC near BWI, Kop-Flex offers students the opportunity to gain experience in mechanical design and manufacturing. Kop-Flex offers excellent opportunities for advancement, currently 7 of 13 engineers are former co-ops.
Co-ops will work closely with Product Engineers & mentors in the design of mechanical couplings. They will apply engineering knowledge to perform stress analysis, calculate coupling mass elastic data, produce coupling drawings, develop new and innovative products, and manage engineering projects. Project management may provide opportunities to interact with VP’s, managers, and customers. They will have the opportunity to interact with global employees and customers.
Preferably co-ops have an understanding of mechanical design, stress analysis, materials, and vibration analysis. Individuals should posses and demonstrate proficiency with Microsoft Office and CAD software (AutoCAD is preferred).
Schedule: Preferably a full-time co-op during the Fall semester. Students able to commit at least 25 hours/week will be considered. Please indicate your availability in your resume objective.
