Fuel Cell Engineers
- Write technical reports or proposals related to engineering projects.
- Read current literature, attend meetings or conferences, or talk with colleagues to stay abreast of new technology or competitive products.
- Validate design of fuel cells, fuel cell components, or fuel cell systems.
- Simulate or model fuel cell, motor, or other system information, using simulation software programs.
- Recommend or implement changes to fuel cell system designs.
- Provide technical consultation or direction related to the development or production of fuel cell systems.
- Plan or conduct experiments to validate new materials, optimize startup protocols, reduce conditioning time, or examine contaminant tolerance.
- Integrate electric drive subsystems with other vehicle systems to optimize performance or mitigate faults.
- Identify or define vehicle and system integration challenges for fuel cell vehicles.
- Fabricate prototypes of fuel cell components, assemblies, stacks, or systems.
