Mechanical CAD Draughtsman

The Mechanical CAD Engineer is responsible for designing mechanical structures and mechanisms as defined by the needs mandated through clients, projects and
stakeholders such that it achieves outputs which meet validated requirements. The Mechanical CAD Engineer is responsible for performing CAD designing activities in an efficient, pro-active and synergistic manner.
All CAD models developed within the organisation are to be designed and maintained in accordance to the standards as defined by the Mechanical Engineering division or where otherwise approved. As such, the Mechanical CAD Engineer is responsible for designing and implementing CAD designs while operating according to approved Industry Standards and other standards as defined by its Centres of Excellence (COE) within which specific aspects, amongst others include practices, principles, procedures and supporting structures.
Mechanical design (CAD) solutions are produced for Space and Ground segments of spacecraft engineering which includes the development, testing, ground support equipment, assembly & integration and production environments – furthermore, mechanical design solutions are produced per project need and required assignment.
A Mechanical CAD Engineer is also, where appointed as such, either accountable for (technical lead and contributor) or responsible to (perform and contribute) a given Centre of Excellence. The organisation’s systems engineering standards are employed on all projects and work assignments. Mechanical design engineering is practiced within interdisciplinary engineering project teams and projects, enabling realization of successful and precise technical outcomes that meets the intended technical performance as set for stakeholder, user and customer needs.
