Senior Electronics Control Systems Engineer Leicestershire, UK £40-60k + benefits Due to growth and expansion a senior electronics control engineer is required to join a successful automotive engineering company in the Leicester area. The role would suit an experienced electronics engineer, control systems engineer or systems design engineer that has a good electronics background coupled with a strong background in control systems design. The role will involve the systems design, specification and delivery of ECU modules for new and upgrade vehicle development programmes. This will involve the development of control strategies using Model Based development (Matlab / Simulink.) As a senior electronic control systems engineer, you will be responsible for developing system requirements and technical specifications for associated vehicle control hardware and seeing projects through to final validation and integration. The electronics control systems engineer will work on the design, development and delivery of ECU systems for different aspects of the vehicle (e.g. powertrain, suspension, chassis, brakes, driver information and user interfaces) using Matlab / Simulink for the development of control software. In turn this will require working with suppliers that will handle detailed level electronics design. You will also take a lead in hardware test and validation including vehicle level integration. Skills / Knowledge required: Electronics control Systems Engineer * A degree, masters or PhD in a relevant subject area (e.g. electronics engineering, control systems, mechatronics, automotive engineering, computer science) * Good electronics engineering knowledge (analogue and digital) coupled with specific control systems knowledge (electromechanical systems, ECUs etc) * Strong experience of Matlab / Simulink for the development of control systems * An involvement in automotive projects (passenger car, motorbikes, commercial vehicles, formula student) would be a distinct advantage and preference * Ability to specify electronic control functions and ECU systems – modelling using Matlab / Simulink * Excellent communication skills (written and verbal) coupled with good organisation ability Others (beneficial): Electronics Systems Engineer * Formal systems engineering training would be very useful in addition to exposure to DOORS * Experience of using tools such as UML or SysML * Understanding or experience of embedded software development would be useful (able to read C code) * Experience of vehicle systems (e.g. powertrain, chassis, suspension, brakes or user interfaces) Electronics design engineers and control systems engineers from industry sectors other than automotive such as aerospace, avionics, industrial control, off-highway, military vehicles, rolling stock, marine or maybe medical devices could be of interest. However the development of control systems using Matlab / Simulink is vital. This Electronics Systems Engineer role is commutable from Birmingham, Coventry, Northampton, Leicester, Hinckley, Loughborough, Nuneaton, Leamington Spa and Leicester
