Valeo is an automotive supplier, partner to all automakers worldwide. As a technology company, Valeo proposes innovative products and systems that contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions, the improvement of vehicle performance and to the development of intuitive driving. In 2015, the Group generated sales of €14.5 billion and invested over 10% of its original equipment sales in research and development. Valeo has 134 plants, 17 research centers, 35 development centers and 15 distribution platforms, and employs 82,800 people in 30 countries worldwide. Valeo is listed on the Paris stock exchange and is a member of the CAC 40 index. The Creteil site is a R&D center dedicated to advanced projects, as alternators, starter-alternators and electronic machines. GEEDS is a Valeo R&D transversal entity. GEEDS is the owner of Electronics standard and methodology for Valeo group including software, support group development toward best quality, and provide innovative technologies.
Within the simulation department of GEEDS (Group Electronics Expertise and Development Services), the Mechatronic
simulation engineer will be responsible for all electro-thermal, mechanical / thermo-mechanical simulations in the
Mechatronic developments of Valeo (ECU, inverter, DC/DC converters, power module etc.).
o Realize the electro-thermal, mechanical / thermo-mechanical simulations requested by projects
o Promote and make the thermal pre-dimensioning calculations to the Valeo HW / Catia designers in order
to identify thermal risks on their electronic projects
o Optimize heat sink and electronic assembly (thermal interface, layout) of the product with designers on a
thermal point of view
o Make technical proposals to designers for securing and for improving the product based on the simulation
o Set up standards, guidelines and methodologies on our referent 3D tools.
o Deploy and promote thermal pre-dimensioning methodology
o Involve in the domain meetings via technical presentations.
o Involve in the technology watch, the research and the deployment of innovative solutions in order to
maintain the excellence in the domain and to provide the optimum solutions to projects
