What do Electrical Engineering / Computer Engineering New and Recent Grads do? do?

MITRE’s Electrical Engineering / Computer Engineering new grads help to design, analyze, and implement communications and electronic systems across a diverse set of environments. This may include working on signal processing technologies including sensors, antennas, photonics and more. Interns help build and support an effective environment that supports and promotes interoperability between systems, as well as unified infrastructure that satisfies current and future customer needs. They also work on identifying and deploying appropriate security mechanisms to include behavior tracking, authentication, accreditation, response measures, and audit.

What are some examples of projects that they worked on?

  • Modeled an FPGA signal generator for encrypted GPS signals in C to enable more efficient testing of software components.

  • Perform Interoperability tests between different providers to keep track of the testing process, do data analysis, and perform any further tests for clarification

  • Responsible for determining key information for mission capability areas and developing prototype solutions and managing a lab infrastructure

  • Adding features and capabilities to an existing embedded system, and helping to create a test framework for signal jamming.

  • Reverse engineer specific power supply for faults and vulnerabilities.

  • Working in the remote sensing department to create masks to block out clouds (unwanted information)


What does an ideal Electrical Engineering / Computer Engineering New or Recent Grad have?:

  • Bachelors, Masters or PhD degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Mathematics, or similar field, with an interest in communications or signal processing or other relevant technical disciplines.

  • Understanding of technologies for the communications architecture such as coding and modulation techniques for the physical layer, data protection algorithms for the application layer, or digital signal processing capabilities.

  • Understanding of communication systems and operations; layered architectures; design principles of extensible communication systems, interference analysis, digital filter design and analysis.

  • Sustained excellence in academic performance

  • High level desire to help their nation solve its most critical problems

  • Exhibits the characteristics of a continuous learner
