Available now

The main responsibilities of this position will be to model and solve problems related to structural analysis using existing software (Ansys, Femap, NX, NX, Nastran, LS-Dyna). The finite element engineer is part of a team specialized in numerical simulation (Fluid Structure and Dynamics). Working mainly for external customers, the engineer is confronted with very diversified projects in a wide range of sectors.

What a typical day with us looks like:

  • Perform numerical modelling by finite element (meshing and analysis) using existing tools (NX/Nastran, Femap/Nastran, Ansys, LS-Dyna) ;
  • Perform calculations by hand (material strength, heat transfer, component sizing, etc.) ;
  • Write analysis reports, advise clients on modifications to be made;
  • Work in close collaboration with other Finite Element and Fluid Dynamics Engineers in order to validate calculation hypotheses and recommendations made to clients ;
  • Work in close collaboration with technicians, designers and engineers on design projects;
  • Design mechanical parts, assemblies, complex mechanical systems.

Our perfect match...

  • Holds a BACC in Mechanical Engineering ;
  • Has between 1 and 5 years of applied experience in finite element analysis;
  • Has between 1 and 5 years of experience with Femap, Nastran, Ansys or Simcenter software;
  • Has knowledge in structural analysis, nonlinear analysis, material strength, fatigue, dynamics and vibration;
  • Knows and masters one or more 3D design software such as CatiaV5, SolidWorks, NX, etc. ;

Having the opportunity to be invited to Ängelholm, Sweden, at Koenigsegg’s headquarters was unbelievable! I had to perform a full scan of the company’s new Regera. It was an unforgettable experience! When you work at Creaform, you get to meet wonderful people who use Creaform technologies on a daily basis. You learn a lot about how high performance cars are designed and manufactured. From a mechanical engineering (and car enthusiast!) standpoint, it doesn’t get any better than this!
