Corning is one of the world's leading innovators in materials science. For more than 160 years, Corning has applied its unparalleled expertise in
specialty glass, ceramics, and optical physics to develop products that have created new industries and transformed people's lives.
Corning succeeds through sustained investment in R and D, a unique combination of material and process innovation, and close collaboration with customers to solve tough technology challenges.
Our Optical Communications segment has recently evolved from being a manufacturer of optical fiber and cable, hardware and equipment to being a comprehensive provider of industry:leading optical solutions across the broader communications industry.This segment is classified into two main product groupings : carrier network and enterprise network. The carrier network product group consists primarily of products and solutions for optical:based communications infrastructure for services such as video, data and voice communications. The enterprise network product group consists primarily of optical:based communication networks sold to businesses, governments and individuals for their own use.
Scope of Position:
:Development engineer focused on advancing optical fiber connectivity innovation.
:Solving problems based on fundamental understanding gained through the use of the scientific method and DOE.
:Collaboration with internal and external subject matter experts.
:Work closely with engineers and technicians to define and perform experiments to develop process technologies and solutions.
:Application of DMAIC and advanced statistical tools.
:Evaluation of new raw materials, component designs, and process equipment.
:Projects could support any Corning division or research and development.
Day to Day Responsibilities:
:Collaborate with engineers and technicians to design and develop new process methods and technologies for fiber optic termination.
:Create operational ranges for parameters defined as a result of experimental development.
:Support project teams and the definition of project deliverables and timelines.
:Work with internal and external subject matter experts to identify key processing technologies and determine feasibility.
:Engage global manufacturing plants to capture manufacturability of proposed solutions and support initial implementation of new process technologies.
:Collaborate with internal and external equipment and tooling designers to establish functional requirements.
:Solve problems and improve processes based on fundamental understanding.
:Structured problem solving methods such as KT, Designed Experimentation, and Six Sigma.
:Capture new ideas for possible patent submission.
:Ensure that requirements are properly developed and documented in conjunction with appropriate manufacturing, development, and commercial personnel.
:Ensure that these requirements are met to the greatest extent possible using the best available technology.
:Develop documentation for each project and work with associated plant personnel to implement it.
:Implement Process Control and Process Discipline systems into manufacturing operations.
:Analyze process data using statistical tools (e.g. pareto, regression, time charting, analysis of variance, gauge R and R, etc.).
:Review and interpret data to make recommendations on immediate actions, long term corrective actions, follow:up experiments, etc.
:Define experimental plans, measurement methods, and mechanical setups for evaluation of key learning objectives.
:Carry out experimental plans by setting up equipment (such as various types of measurement systems and mechanical apparatus), performing experimentation, data collection and analysis, and providing test reports.
:Maintain and improve a safe work environment.
Travel Requirements:
:25 on average depending on the project requirements. Includes international travel.
Required Education:
:BS in Engineering
