* Industry experience of designing small or precision components, ideally for electronic product packaging or similar environments.

* Familiarity with SolidWorks.

* An appreciation of change control procedures, e.g.

ECO/ECN systems.

* A good understanding of tolerances and their effects in real-world production.

* Some awareness of thermal management techniques, especially in electronic product design.

* Previous involvement in environmental testing, e.g.

shock, vibration or thermal tests.

* A background in product development for airborne or ground vehicle equipment.
