CAE Engineer - NVH




The CAE Engineer (NVH & Durability) will manage the creation full vehicle and component NVH and durability models. 


Market Overview

Home to our global Research, Design and Development centre and all of our Commercial functions, Dyson HQ is tucked away in countryside famous for the railway tunnels and bridges of Isambard Brunel, who revolutionised modern engineering. Our secluded location helps us to protect our ideas and stay independent-minded.

Yet nearby are the fashionable cities of Bristol and Bath (where a young James Dyson invented cyclone technology).
The building is the heartbeat of Dyson. Over 1,500 people, including James himself, spend their days strategizing, inventing technology and telling the Dyson story to the world. From 2016, our HQ will begin doubling its footprint with an ambitious new expansion.

Function Overview

Our design engineering team is the idea factory of Dyson. It’s where we took the bag out of the vacuum. The blades out of a fan. And the heat out of hand dryers. With free-flowing curiosity and creativity, ideas are never in short supply. The key is deciding which ones could change the world and which should, for now, be shelved.

This is done by the New Product Innovation team, who pass on the best ideas to New Product Development. Sketching, prototyping, testing, failing and refining follow. It can take months, even years. But those ideas that make it are big – the kind that transform markets.


  • Create CAE models for full vehicle NVH simulation from concept to detail stage
  • Deliver engineering solutions to meet NVH requirements and support gateway status reporting.
  • Ensure consistent use of state of the art methods and continuously develop efficient practices.
  • Support the definition and monitoring of component, system and vehicle level testing.
  • Help develop body and vehicle engineering standards.
  • Collaborate closely with the vehicle NVH team to help develop integrated solutions.
  • Integrate NVH performance with other major attributes, such as crashworthiness and durability, within CAE, Body Engineering and Vehicle Engineering groups.


  • Master degree in Mechanical Engineering or equivalent (other relevant engineering disciplines will be considered).
  • CAE NVH simulation experience.
  • Experience with structural dynamic analysis software: Nastran, Optistruct, Abaqus.
  • Working knowledge of body and vehicle engineering for NVH performance, including modal alignment, vibration and noise transfer functions.
  • Sound knowledge of materials, manufacturing requirements and mechanical properties.
  • Ability to communicate complex technical issues in an appropriate, concise and accurate fashion, both in writing and verbally.
  • Ability to multi-task and plan effectively when working with a variety of project teams in an often high-pressure, competitive environment.

  • Self-starter - ability to work independently, take on new challenges readily, possess a hands on approach and a can-do attitude.

  • Excellent team-working skills.


  • Experience with vehicle level NVH modelling (using tools such as NVH director)
  • Experience in Electric Vehicle Body Structures development and new vehicle platform development.
  • Familiarity with vehicle crashworthiness and pedestrian protection.
  • Experience with optimisation methods and tools, within NVH and/or other applications
