A Chassis CAD Design Engineer is required to work for a leading automotive OEM based in Whitley.

A high level CAD Engineer is required to produce detailed 3D models and 2D drawings for these components and release through Teamcenter. This predominantly involves design in context of complex castings and occasionally fabrications requiring the CAD Engineer to create geometry in both solids and surfaces and interpret and conduct CAE analysis to iterate the designs.

The Suspension System Architecture (SSA) team is responsible for the design, analysis and release of vehicle chassis structural components including suspension links, knuckles, bearings, bushes and frames.

This includes developing and implementing system and component strategies, developing detailed designs and delivering Engineering sign-off against customer requirements.

  1. Proven ability to use CATIA V5 for both solid and surface modelling.
  2. Proven ability of interpretation of and ability to conduct CAE stress and durability analysis to iterate and optimise designs.
  3. Proven ability to produce detailed engineering drawings.



Experience Required:

  • Proven ability to use CATIA V5 for both solid and surface modelling.
  • Proven ability of interpretation of and ability to conduct CAE stress and durability analysis (Abaqus, Optistrut, Hypermesh, nCode (fatigue) to iterate and optimise designs.
  • Proven ability to produce detailed engineering drawings including application of appropriate GD&T.
