  • Conceptual design of technical solutions for mold systems for industrially relevant applications
  • Detailed, standard-compliant design and production planning of mold systems using
    commercially available CAD software (Autodesk Inventor, Siemens NX)
  • Commissioning and validation of the system on industrial equipment

What you bring to the table

  • You are studying mechanical engineering, production engineering or comparable subject
  • You have good CAD skills
  • Your strengths include very good analytical and conceptual skills as well as a strong team
    orientation and communication skills
  • Very good language skills in English, both written and spoken

What you can expect

  • Collaboration in innovative research projects and the chance to implement your knowledge
    from your studies in practice
  • You become part of the team from the very beginning, can contribute your ideas and take on
    tasks on your own responsibility
