At TE, you will unleash your potential working with people from diverse backgrounds and industries to create a safer, sustainable and more connected world. 

Job Overview


TE Connectivity’s R&D/Product Development Engineering Teams conceive original ideas for new products, introduce them into practice. They are responsible for product development, and qualification from market definition through production and release; assist in the qualification of suppliers for new products to ensure suppliers deliver quality parts, materials, and services for new or improved manufacturing processes; conduct feasibility studies, testing on new and modified designs; direct and support detailed design, testing, prototype fabrication and manufacturing ramp. The R&D/Product Development Engineering Teams provide all required product documentation including, but not limited to, Solid Model, 2D/3D production drawings, product specifications, and testing requirements. They create and modify detailed drawings and drafting or conceptual models from layouts, rough sketches or notes and contribute to design modifications to facilitate manufacturing operation or quality of product. Typical fields of expertise include: materials, mechanics and systems, electrical, optics, chemistry, software, automation systems, packaging, testing and measurement, and manufacturing of electrical, mechanical and electronic components, products, and their integration into systems.


TE Connectivity is looking for an R&D Scientist/Engineer to join our R&D Center.  The Scientist/Engineer will be part of a specialized team, collaborating with R&D team members, business unit partners as well as local university and government research centers to undertake projects that will advance TE’s technologies. This position reports to the Simulation group and is based at our Singapore HQ.
The Singapore R&D Center is chartered to work with the CTO’s of TE’s Business Units to identify technical areas of interest for R&D and develop the technologies that will impact all segments. In order to improve the New Product Development process, TE is expanding the upfront simulation and modelling capabilities, as a part of our Digitalization strategy to improve efficiency, decrease cost and decrease time to market. Effective use of modelling helps to “get it right the first time.”

Job Responsibilities


  • Assist with projects to create multi-physical (chemical, mechanical, thermal, electrical etc.) models that target TE product design and manufacturing process needs
  • Evaluate, develop and apply multi-physics solutions using commercial software and cutting-edge numerical methods, as applied to TE problem areas
  • Create awareness across TE of the modelling and simulation capabilities of the Singapore center
  • Work with local and regional TE sites, and external customers and partners, to address urgent or strategic needs 
  • Assist with validation and knowledge transfer of outsourced modelling projects
  • Partner with Singapore research institutes to develop advanced simulation techniques
