Process Engineering at a Glance
These teams are the Problem Solvers when it comes to preparing a system for delivery to a customer.
You will author the process for our product's final assembly, and the order and method by which each of the thousands of components go together into a single system. These technical documents become formal part of our state-of-the-art Manufacturing Execution System that we rely on for on-time delivery.
We have a team of Manufacturing Engineers for each major discipline in WESCAM so that every area of development is covered:

Domain Expertise We Look For
Our Process Engineers/Manufacturing Engineers tackle problems that range from the simple to the complex. Our team can solve it within an hour – or it might take longer.
It could be a one-off problem or a recently discovered trend that requires deep analysis, perhaps re-design work with our Quality Engineering team. It may be an electrical assembly or an opto-mechanical system that our team focuses on – so the expertise we seek can cover a lot of ground. Below are some of the things that are important:
Root Cause Analysis and Trending Analysis
Technical Writing / Process Writing
Industry experience in Automotive, Pharma, Industrial Engineering, Auto-Parts Manufacturing
Also, the ability to play a musical instrument is also high on the list – we have 7 in-company bands and we’re always looking for a guitar lead or a drummer.
Education / Academic Backgrounds We Look For
Manufacturing Engineering degrees are becoming more common at many post-secondary institutions, and in addition to that we welcome those with a broad-spectrum technical degree / diploma in either electrical, mechanical, systems, industrial engineering or technologist degrees/diplomas.
Diversity and Inclusion
We believe that diversity among our employees makes us a stronger organization.
We are committed to diversity and inclusion within our L3HARRIS WESCAM family, and our community by welcoming and encouraging applications from anyone interested without regard to race, colour, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, disability, protected veteran's status, Aboriginal status or any other legally-protected groups.

Life at L3HARRIS WESCAM
This is the most important part.
Many companies say that their work is ‘exciting’ or ‘challenging’, or that they work in a fast-paced environment. Perhaps our definition of those terms is slightly different – because we are one of the only companies in the world that produce what we do, have customers like we do, allow our employees to work on the kinds of things we do, and say with certainty that what we do every single day directly contributes to protecting lives around the world.
