As a global semiconductor company operating in 35 countries, Texas Instruments (TI) is first and foremost a reflection of its people. From the TIer who unveiled the first working integrated circuit in 1958 to the more than 30,000 TIers around the world today who design, manufacture and sell analog and embedded processing chips, we are problem-solvers collaborating to change the world through technology.
About the Job
Facilities Engineering interns will receive significant projects related to their Mechanical, Chemical, Electrical, Controls, or Civil studies that are challenging and beneficial to the facilities organization.
Mechanical Engineering interns may work issues related to thermodynamics, heat transfer, gas and fluid mechanics, process control or HVAC and psychometric processes. Most projects will support advanced micro-electronics manufacturing operations.
Chemical Engineering interns will often work with over fifty types of chemicals and gases that are used in the production of semiconductors.
Electrical Engineering interns will often have projects related to power distribution systems that ensure 100% uptime of the manufacturing equipment.
All intern projects often include the following responsibilities:
• Analyzing existing mechanical systems to troubleshoot problems and improve operating efficiencies (i.e., reduce operating and maintenance costs), improve reliability and/or regain capacity, etc.
• Working with programmable logic controllers (PLC’s) to automate the Facilities systems, also known as Controls Engineering
• Using flow and pressure monitoring equipment to generate useful graphical data for communications
• Responsibility for static, dynamic design, and analysis of mechanical systems, equipment and packages
• Conducting feasibility studies and testing on new and modified designs
• Providing design information to drafting for packaging documentation
• Planning plant, office and production equipment layouts for economy of operation and maximum utilization of facilities and equipment
• Reviewing and estimating design costs including equipment, installation, labor, materials, preparation, and other related costs
• Developing criteria and performance specifications for facilities and equipment, required to meet unique operating requirements and building and safety codes
