  • Requirements formulation and technical documentation
  • Both system-level and detailed engineering
  • Product development
  • Prototyping and testing


A day in the life of a Mechanical R&D Engineer:

Your day kicks off with a cup of coffee, giving you the caffeine fix you need to get started. You check your email/messages for any updates and then check in with the project leader Jules Frints . You and your team are working on designing the integral inner components of the battery pack based on the client's needs. When the design is complete, you'll move on to prototyping and building the components. But, first thing's first! 


Yesterday you found some issues with the design. You brainstorm with your fellow engineers on how to solve this issue, which leads to a jam-sesh of ideas and designs for how to fix it. 


Next, it's time for lunch. If it's a nice, sunny day you head outside to catch some rays with your teammates on a lunch walk.


Full and happy, you hop back in and improvise a set-up to test your initial designs and improvise a set-up to test your ideas. Success! Concept 2 seems promising! You head back to your laptop to finish up the designs so you can order a prototype. 


You wrap up your work and it's time to go home! You had an awesome, productive day and got a ton of great work done with your team. Enjoy your evening, and see you tomorrow!
