New ideas are all around us, but only a few will change the world. That’s our focus at JPL. We ask the biggest questions, then search the universe for answers—literally. We build upon ideas that have guided generations, then share our discoveries to inspire generations to come. Your mission—your opportunity—is to seek out the answers that bring us one step closer. If you’re driven to discover, create, and inspire something that lasts a lifetime and beyond, you’re ready for JPL.
Located in Pasadena, California, JPL has a campus-like environment situated on 177 acres in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains and offers a work environment unlike any other: we inspire passion, foster innovation, build collaboration, and reward excellence.
This unique opportunity is part of the Mechanical Fabrication and Test Section which maintains technical support facilities and resources that provide the services required to fabricate, assemble, and test electro-mechanical developmental and flight hardware. This Section develops and matures equipment and technologies, which enable and enhance our fabrication and environmental test capability for current and future missions.
As a Pressure Systems Intern you will be working for JPL's Pressure System Services Group which certifies and maintains certification of all of the lab’s pressure systems. Members of this team perform engineering analyses and life assessments on a variety of pressure systems using the appropriate consensus code (i.e. ASTM, ASME, API, MIL). They assess configuration, operability and safety risk of each pressure system per JPL/NASA standards and they evaluate new pressure system designs prior to installation for optimal functionality while meeting pressure systems safety requirements.
