Support in preparation of technical data to internal and external customers
Support in producing required documentation under the supervision of senior engineers (e.g. project life cycle design, manufacturing and testing documents),
Support in a wide range of design activities under the guidance of Lead or Senior engineers. For example, defining input & output of the control system based on standard design and client requirement, control System Integration, defining the main IO Lists of the control system and so on and so forth
Follow the departments standard design practices, engineering reviews and guidelines.
Prepare and present with support from lead engineer’s technical information for Substation Control Systems to internal and external customers.
Assist with laboratory activities for the installation and testing of the control system.
Assist in proper documentation of technical data generated for the assigned projects and/or tasks consistent with engineering policies and procedures.
The candidate will have completed 2 years of degree level in a related science such as electronics and electrical engineering. However, this is not as important as a proven track record and evidence that you have the mind-set and abilities to perform the role.
