EB CAREERS - AMEC Developmental Student Internship - 6584BR

Date Posted: January 09, 2012 - Date Ends: November 29, 1999
January 9, 2012 - Calling all students! AMEC NSS (formerly Nuclear Safety Solutions Limited) is an engineering and nuclear safety analysis company in Canada, which provides specialized services primarily to the power generation industry. As a member of the AMEC global family, the AMEC NSS Student Development Program is currently seeking to fill the position of a:Developmental Student - 16 Month Internship (May 2012 – August 2013) - full-time, temporary
The position is located in Tiverton, Ont., at the Bruce Power client site, and the individual will need to live in that area for the work term. The individual will be a member of a number of multi-disciplined teams in the Engineering, Technical Support Services or Commercial Operations groups.

Job duties:
The work involves performing safety and engineering analyses using state-of-the-art engineering software, and interfacing with other engineering disciplines. This may include analysis and preparation of documents in support of regulatory submissions, operational safety assessments and plant design changes. Students may participate in the development, verification, testing, documentation and validation of computer codes used in safety and engineering analysis, and in the development of new analytical methods and models related to safety and licensing issues. Typical projects may include:

• Creating, verifying and running computer-based models to simulate nuclear power plant system (thermal hydraulic) or reactor core (physics) response during normal operation or transient conditions;
• Performing calculations to demonstrate fitness for service or service life of plant structural components (e.g. piping, fuel and fuel channels);
• Performing probabilistic risk analysis to quantify and demonstrate acceptability of the risks (safety and/or economic) associated with plant operation;
• Performing assessments of plant system design and operation to establish or modify safety requirements (e.g. to support plant process optimization); and
• Designing modifications to plant systems and equipment.

Essential skills/knowledge:
The successful candidate is expected to have sound fundamental knowledge of engineering and/or science principles. The position is suitable for candidates with superior analytical and problem solving skills, as well as an aptitude in numerical/computational analysis. Candidates with advanced knowledge in various disciplines, such as computational fluid dynamics, two-phase flow and heat transfer, engineering material properties, structural analysis, risk assessment, and physics are highly desirable. Excellent written and oral communication, time management, and interpersonal skills are required.

Professional development you will receive:
You will learn about the use of analysis software and analysis methods. You will be given the opportunity to contribute to the success of our business by undertaking technically challenging projects, with coaching and direction from staff who are highly experienced in the chemical, environment and power generation industries.

Discipline(s) Required:
Chemical, Mechanical, Materials, Electrical, Civil or Nuclear Engineering, Engineering Science, Physics, Mathematics, or equivalent.

Level: 2nd, 3rd, 4th Year
