Job Description

GTRI’s Cooperative Education (co-op) program offers you extensive opportunities to participate in diverse scientific and technological endeavors, use state-of-the-art equipment and rapidly improve your technical and leadership skills. The program allows you to alternate three semesters of full-time work at GTRI with semesters of full-time school.

GTRI’s Advanced Concepts Lab (ACL) provides innovative, tailored solutions to challenging problems for our customers. Our laboratory identifies and transitions advances in basic research for use in real-world applications, with particular emphasis on antennas, electromagnetics, counter-proliferation technologies, and integrated analysis of signals and systems. ACL possesses extensive capabilities for numerical modeling, experimentation, and characterization to prove new technologies and concepts.

ACL is seeking motivated and creative co-op students who are interested in helping our teams of research engineers solve a wide variety of challenging and exciting problems. In our lab we design, build, and test electromagnetic structures. The hardware to support this research is developed and fabricated in-house by our mechanical engineering co-op students.  In this role, you will work as part of a multidisciplinary team to help design mechanical systems to perform electromagnetics measurements, including integrating motion with measurement hardware. You will spend time designing and drawing components and then fabricating these structures using traditional machining and additive manufacturing techniques. In this position, you will also learn to measure antennas and characterize electromagnetic materials.
