Job Description

About the role

The Materials Engineer will provide engineering services to support growth and execution of pipeline and facility integrity assessment and maintenance engineering of client industry assets. As workload demands, this position will also support pipeline integrity management and marine engineering applications. This work will apply practices defined in industry codes and standards, making use of both hand calculation, experimental work and finite element modelling analysis tools to complete design and defect assessment tasks. This position will complete engineering tasks under the supervision of more experienced Engineers. In this role you will:

  • Complete materials and structural integrity assessments for energy sector facility and pipeline assets considering the effects of damage and degradation

  • Complete materials and structural new asset design or degraded system remedial action repair procedure development for energy sector facilities

  • Support development of engineering task proposals including the development of technical approach descriptions and level of effort estimates for engineering tasks

  • Capable of performing experiments related with fatigue, corrosion fatigue and SCC, fracture toughness, failure investigation and microstructural analysis work

  • Complete structural and mechanical analysis using finite element modelling

  • Employ MS Excel and/or Matlab to complete engineering calculations

  • Document engineering analysis tasks in project reports

  • Develop and grow familiarity with applicable engineering tools, codes and standards

  • In addition to these duties, the candidate may be required to carry out such other duties as may reasonably be required, from time to time, to achieve the above role purpose.
