2015 PDP Systems Engineer - Professional Development Rotational Program

Job Description

NOTE: Please review all Professional Development Program (PDP) postings carefully. If you meet the Basic Qualifications, please apply for the position which is the best match for you. YOU SHOULD ONLY APPLY TO ONE PDP POSTING. Northrop Grumman Electronic Systems offers a challenging rotational program in Engineering, Manufacturing and Logistics for new/recent graduates with a B.S., M.S. and/or Ph.D degree in Systems Engineering, Electrical/Electronics Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Engineering Physics, Aerospace Engineering, Naval Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or Applied Math. The Professional Development Program offers the opportunity to experience several different job assignments before making a commitment to remain in a particular position. Requirements for this Program include an overall GPA of 2.8/4.0 or higher, as well as the ability to obtain a U.S. Government security clearance (U.S. citizenship is a prerequisite; a current clearance is helpful, but not required). During a Systems Engineering rotation you may learn to take a customer’s requirements and translate them into hardware and/or software requirements, perform model based systems engineering, develop models and simulations, estimate the performance of a system, develop detailed simulations of a system and its environment, define the signal processing algorithm chain that is executed in a real-time computer application, and ultimately to architect the entire system. A Systems rotation affords the opportunity to learn systems engineering, model based engineering, and sensor techniques from some of the brightest engineers in the business. Significant experience in Systems Engineering through work, internships/co-ops and university research is most helpful. Successful applicants will have completed training in many, but not necessarily all, of the following: electromagnetic theory, classical mechanics, discrete time signal processing, probability and statistics, calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, and numerical methods. Classes completed in any aspect of radar, electronic warfare, navigation, exterior/interior communication or electro/optical infrared theory are a plus but not required. In addition, proficiency in tools such as Matlab, Mathcad, and C/C++ as well as experience in Windows and/or Unix/Linux operating systems are important. We are looking for people with good presentation and writing/communication skills who are self-motivated, willing to learn, and interested in working in a team environment.
