Mechanical engineers in the petrochemical industry provide engineering design and guidance, working with other engineers and production personnel to develop and maintain work processes. You prepare and present technical status reviews, analyze equipment performance and recommend solutions that improve on-stream time and repair costs. You have the opportunity to solve complex problems requiring situational analysis and in-depth data evaluation. You review equipment failures in the field and create solutions that improve performance and reduce downtime. Strong math and science skills required.
Bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering. Prior related summer intern or co-op experience such as commissioning of instrument/electrical control systems, wiring/schematic designs, control/production relaying, etc. is a plus. Equivalent years of military service may be acceptable, in lieu of experience.
