Leading societies to a low carbon future, Alstom develops and markets mobility solutions that provide the sustainable foundations for the future of transportation. Our product portfolio ranges from high-speed trains, metros, monorail, and trams to integrated systems, customised services, infrastructure, signalling and digital mobility solutions. Joining us means joining a caring, responsible, and innovative company where more than 70,000 people lead the way to greener and smarter mobility, worldwide


In the context of Product Engineering development, a Vibroacoustic engineer will participate in project/offer development through the application of internal procedures including Vibroacoustic management of projects, standard Vibroacoustic simulation and measurements of Components

In case of assignment to R&D tasks, he will be in charge of the development of methodologies and technologies related to Vibroacoustics of Rolling Stock and Components


Hierarchical to Traction System Manager

Functional to Acoustic Chief engineer/Acoustic CCN Leader, PrEM and Technical Bid Engineering Manager


Projects main missions

  • To apply the Vibroacoustic Engineering Instructions and guidelines to perform the project/offers tasks
  • To perform the Vibroacoustic analysis of tenders by comparison with referent solutions and previous projects
  • To Prepare the Vibroacoustic specifications and Vibroacoustic Management Plan (VAMP) to be applied in projects
  • To choose the most efficient way to perform the allocation (experimental/numerical), verification and validation during tender and project phase
  • To allocate the different noise sources assemblies through the use of AT standard methodologies.
  • To perform standard Vibroacoustics tests, to postprocess the data and report to validate prediction models and type tests
  • To perform standard Vibroacoustic simulations for exterior noise and interior noise using inhouse developed tools
  • To liaise with the Acoustic Chief Engineer to validate Management Plan, allocations and risks.
  • To liaise with experts in key domains to obtain the necessary data to perform the allocation
  • To liaise with acoustic engineers in other sites and to use AT Vibroacoustic databases to obtain the necessary REX to perform the allocations
  • To capture the Vibroacoustic REX of projects through the use of AT Vibroacoustic databases
  • R&D main missions (if assigned to R&D missions)

  • To lead and manage R&D actions in the context of product improvement and/or methodologies for Vibroacoustics for Rolling Stock. This includes management of resources and budget respecting the quality, cost and delay of R&D deliverables.
  • To develop innovative methodologies to be applied as a standard in the design process of rolling stock.
