General Electric Lead Engineer - Control Systems Engineering in Remote, Massachusetts

Job Description Summary

GE Aviation is investing in the next generation of turbofan engine and engine system technologies. The Lead Engineer will be the Controls integration lead for an engine program from technology maturation phase through conceptual design and beyond. The engineer will interact with internal and external customers to define architecture, design systems, and plan and execute subsystem and system tests.

Systems engineering is a cross-functional engineering discipline centered on an approach, mindset, and process. All activities consider both the business and the technical needs of the customers with the goal of providing a quality product that meets the users needs. The discipline executes a robust process of design, creation, and optimization of systems, consisting of identification and quantification of system requirements, creation of alternate system design concepts, performance of design trade studies, selection and implementation of the best designs and verification that the design is properly integrated and executed.

This role is focused on execution of professional activities within a the Controls discipline, which includes logic and software as well as fluid and electrical hardware. The role functions with some autonomy but guided by established policies and review of end results. The job allows modification of procedures and practices covering work as long as the end results meet standards of acceptability (quality, volume, timeliness etc.).

Job Description

Roles and Responsibilities

  • Define and manage program plan for engine control system and software

  • Collaborate with internal and external customers to develop and manage requirements for engine control compatible with the overall system needs of the engine vehicle

  • Integrate with fluid and electrical systems leads to optimize control system design

  • Establish clear baseline configurations and conduct trade studies against those baselines to improve system design

  • Contribute to the development of system models. Integrate control system models in an effective manner to co-develop the plant and control.

  • Execute on program deliverables, including design reviews, formal control system documentation, proposals, etc.

  • Identify system prognostics and diagnostics to manage reliability for increasingly complex systems

  • Identify, develop, evaluate, introduce, and manage engineering solutions for product control and control system technology needs.
