Intern (Mechanical Engineer)




At Dyson, our internships are about getting hands-on from day one. Not getting bored. In fact, our interns often get to share their ideas with our senior leaders and management.

Dyson opened its new Singapore Technology Centre earlier this year. In this ambitious, top secret centre, some of the world’s brightest engineering minds continually push the boundaries of science & technology.

Market Overview

Our Singapore story began in 2004 and today we have more than 1000 people working here. At the beginning of 2017 we opened our new, state of the art, Singapore Technology Centre in Science Park I, minutes from Singapore’s technology and start-up community. This new Technology Centre houses some of Dyson’s most advanced facilities including Robotics and Sensors laboratories and Smart Home, Connectivity & Mobile Applications laboratories as well as an Advanced Control Tower with the latest technology to develop its analytics driven activities.


Not too far away is West Park, our flagship advanced motor manufacturing facility where we develop our autonomous robotic manufacturing capabilities – more than 300 robots assemble our Dyson Digital Motor (DDM) here. It is here that we develop our next generation of motor technology.       

Function Overview

RDD is the heart of Dyson. It’s where we invent technology that solves problems. Our engineers challenge convention, build, test, fail, refine, fail again. To be different takes courage as well as creativity.

Based in Singapore, you’ll be part of a 1,700-strong global team of engineers and scientists. From day one you’ll be working on top secret projects using cutting edge machinery. Whichever area you join we’ll support your development, helping you understand the business and grow into the role. And the rest is up to you. Most importantly, if you make the most of the opportunity, we’ll look to make a Graduate offer of employment for when you complete your degree. You can help shape the next generation of Dyson technology.


Depending on where you fit best, you will have the opportunity to work in either of the areas below:


  • Apply innovative problem solving skills to support the vision specification for new product concepts.
  • Implement great design and solve engineering problems to make products that meet all performance and functional criteria within demanding project timescales.
  • Apply practical and methodical design development through prototyping, testing and evaluation of results.
  • To participate in design reviews with Senior Design Engineers, Engineering Managers and Design Managers – justify design detail and collaborate with other specialists.

Mechanical Design (Manufacturing)

  • Support product development, engineering evaluations or special builds
  • Tolerance stacks analysis
  • Design for manufacturing analysis
  • Conduct measurements in accordance to design specifications.
  • Lab based testing/characterisation
  • Build Dyson Digital Motors Prototype showcase

Motors (Manufacturing)

  • Mechanical validations of Dyson Digital Motors (i.e. vibration, thermal, impact/drop, etc) in accordance to IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) standards or DTMs (Dyson Test Method)

  • DDM performance, especially noise and airflow performance evaluations.

  • Measurement system analysis (MSA/GR&R) and data analysis by using statistical tools/software.

  • Conduct failure investigation and analysis on failed motors

  • Root cause analysis (RCA) and corrective actions (design/reliability close-loop practices)

Fluid Dynamics

  • Manage technical risk (Aerodynamics and Thermal) in projects.

  • Drive designs forward and ensure correct decisions are made at all stages of the design process through experimental validation and other relevant analysis methods

  • Provide and co-ordinate analytical support to new and existing products.

  • Liaise with development teams to ensure an effective transfer of technology into our product range.

  • Promote best practice in Aerodynamics and Thermal design

  • Identify and develop new opportunities/tools/methods with the aim of enhancing the performance, reliability and time to market of Dyson products.

Acoustic & Vibration

  • Provide, co-ordinate and support Noise and Vibration across RDD for new and existing projects.

  • Drive designs forward based on sound engineering knowledge and ensure correct decisions are taken at all stages of the design process with regards to Noise and Vibration.

  • Identify and develop new opportunities/tools/methods with the aim of enhancing the performance, reliability and time to market of Dyson products.

Manufacturing Engineering

  • Understanding of factory automation

  • Good understanding of mechanical drawing

  • Good understanding of process / equipment / Quality engineering knowledge

  • Good issue troubleshooting knowledge and mindset


The internship programme is competitive so you’ll need to be academically strong and have the right to work in the country of your application. You’ll be studying a technical degree, such as: product design, design engineering, design and innovation, mechanical engineering.

Benefits Overview

Professional growth, leadership development and new opportunities abound, driven by regular reviews and dynamic workshops. And with a vibrant culture, the latest devices and a relaxed dress code reflecting our engineering spirit, it’s an exciting team environment geared to fuelling and realising ambition.
