The Challenges
We know that in order to make it interesting, there must be a meaning to what you do, every day, when going to work. We think that the following challenges can be meaningful if you are concerned, like us, by long-term development and the future of the planet.

By 2050, global energy demand will double (source: IEA 450 plan)  however, to limit global temperature rises; we need to look at potential reductions of CO2 emissions.

At Eaton, we offer you to help our customers meet the energy efficiency challenge by:

  • Building more energy-efficient buildings, communities & infrastructure
  • Accelerating the development of renewable energy technologies
  • Powering mobile and stationery equipment more productively and safely, while reducing their environmental impact
  • Designing eco-efficient aircraft that reduce fuel consumption and operating costs
  • Improving fuel economy and reducing emissions in autos, trucks and other essential forms of transportation

The Focus Area
What happens when suddenly, in the middle of a surgery, there is a complete blackout?
What is needed to produce pulse-pounding horsepower while still conserving energy?
How do we ensure full control of a football-size airplane in flight?
What can make a 60-ton truck drive easily?

Your knowledge and innovation capabilities are crucial to the successful development of many different applications. Depending on your qualifications and interests, you will be exposed to software applications development, systems engineering, power electronics, digital signal processing and controls in six different areas:

  • vehicle powertrain
  • industrial automation
  • power distribution
  • hydraulics
  • electronics
  • IT power open source

In those areas, Eaton is bringing together under one roof a team of renowned experts with different backgrounds to help meeting tomorrow’s challenges. But not only as this new center in Prague is Eaton’s 5th Innovation center in the world which means you will be part of a worldwide network of experts working on stimulating challenges.
