Great idea on this new forum - its something that really gets at what inspired many companies
to get involved in FIRST: hiring highly qualified engineers.

GM Powertrain has a strong need for engineers that are ready to work in the area of powertrain
control systems. Engine control system hardware, control algorithm software generation, and
vehicle calibration are some areas where we are looking for help. Experience (professional,
academic, or otherwise) in this area is a big plus.

Since many of the systems we work on are electromechanical systems, they require talent in
both Electrical and Mechanical Engineering. So, even though there are some big differences
between EE’s and ME’s (you TELL 'em Andy!! :)), the best situation might be an ME with
EE-sense, or vice-versa. Where I work (in advanced engine design), the ME’s definitely
dominate, but we would be dead without EE controls talent on the team.

If you are seriously interested and qualified, send me a resume, and I will make sure our
controls group gives you a good look.

If your GPA is below 3.0, don’t bother sending anything - GM is pretty much a stickler for
good grades.

P.S. - We can probably get you on a FIRST team too :))
