HP Incorporated is the market leader in inkjet printer manufacturing. Our Corvallis site is a design center for many of the inkjet printer cartridges sold today. Our mission is to deliver new technology that creates the best quality image and printing experience to our customers.
This site is one of the best-equipped analytical labs on the West Coast, including a semiconductor fab, proto and production facilities, and a sophisticated failure analysis lab. This intern will have the opportunity to use some of these facilities and to work with a highly motivated group of product quality engineers, researchers, and material scientists covering disciplines including physics, chemistry, and engineering. Interns will coordinate experiments in groups with a strong staff team that includes process and maintenance technicians as well as operators who work together in cross-disciplinary teams to create some of the most complex printing devices on the market.
The intern will help to evaluate product design and performance as well as sub-system components reliability. The projects will involve: Fabricating proto parts to conduct experiments, designing appropriate fixtures using 3D or machining processes, and testing parts through our proto factory and into print system testing. Interns will evaluate print performance, and its correlation to sub-component or process changes will be analyzed using MS Excel and JMP statistical software (prior knowledge of JMP not required, onsite classes are available if needed). S/he will also perform fixture design using CREO and/or Solidworks. Failure analysis of tested parts using microscopy, cross sectioning and other techniques will be required. Following these processes, the intern will document experiments and data analysis for (both for the company and for the internship program) using Microsoft Word and Power Point. Prior coursework in chemistry, physics, math or other physical science helpful but not required.
The intern can expect to gain expertise in materials science, chemical and mechanical engineering, and statistics. Females, minorities, first-generation college-bound students, students with a primary language other than English, and students from low income households are strongly encouraged to apply.
