Job Description:

This is the first level of direct and sustained supervision of other professional engineers, OR the start of the specialization process, applying mature engineering knowledge in planning and conducting projects with scope for independent accomplishment and coordination of difficult and responsible assignments.  Assignments may include a combination of engineering and supervisory work.

Senior Engineer or Project Engineer

·               independently performs assignments with instructions about the general results expected.

·               fully competent in the conventional aspects of at least one engineering field or discipline.

·               plans and conducts own work requiring initiative and independent judgement.

·               develops new concepts or proposes substantial design modifications to meet functional requirements.

·               devises new approaches to problems in the engineering speciality.

·               develops, plans, schedules, conducts or co-ordinates detailed phases of the engineering work in part of a major project or in a total project of considerable scope.

·               work involves conventional engineering practice but may include a variety of complex features such as conflicting design requirements, unsuitable standard materials and difficult co-ordination requirements.

·               assesses the feasibility and soundness of proposed engineering methods.

·               applies broad knowledge of precedents in the engineering discipline or field and a good knowledge of the principles and practices of related disciplines or fields.

·               recommendations are normally accepted as technically accurate and feasible and are reviewed with regard to their overall soundness of judgement.

·               as project engineer has prime responsibility to co-ordinate work of considerable technical and commercial complexity or co-ordinates substantial aspects of large-scale projects.  Defines work scope, communicates client requirements, monitors and reports progress.

·               work is assigned in terms of objectives and relative priorities.

  • Broad knowledge of thermal-fluid sciences (fluid flow, heat transfers, multi-phase flow and thermodynamics)
  • Familiarity and experience with some of the safety and licensing computer codes such as CATHENA, NUCIRC, GOTHIC and MAAP
  • Proficiency in computer programming, especially FORTRAN, is desirable;
  • Good knowledge of the CANDU design, with particular emphasis on the heat transport system (HTS) and plant control, containment and moderator systems would be an asset
  • Good knowledge of underlying engineering principles and practices
  • Experience in licensing activities would also be an asset
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills are required;
  • Ability to work well under pressure and be flexible, i.e., must be able to perform varied work assignments effectively and respond quickly to changing project needs;
  • Ability to show initiative while working in a team environment;
