Intern - Additive Manufacturing
What's the role?
Additive manufacturing is an advancing technology which is gaining momentum in many industries. New materials and applications for additive manufacturing are constantly emerging. Therefore, it is important for Hilti to carry out research into additive manufacturing and to identify where this new technology fits into the Hilti business. Your task is to test and evaluate additive manufacturing technologies for Hilti applications.
Start date is flexible to the student's availability, duration for at least 6 months
Who is Hilti?
If you’re new to the industry, you might not have heard of us. We provide leading-edge tools, technologies, software and services for the global construction sector. We have a proud heritage, built over 75 years, and a worldwide reputation for pioneering products and exceptional service.
With some 29,000 people in more than 120 countries, which we’re looking to expand, we’re a great place for you to show us your worth, step up to new challenges and grow your career.
What does the role involve?
As intern in our department you’ll be part of the Materials and Manufacturing team in Corporate Research and Technology. You’ll work closely with our experts to develop additive manufacturing processes for Hilti applications. You will work hands-on in the lab with powder-based additive manufacturing technologies and directly support ongoing research projects.
Your key responsibilities will be developing additive manufacturing processes for Hilti applications and testing and characterisation of printed parts. The work will involve lots of hands-on testing and optimisation of processes, as well as scientific investigation into properties of printed parts.
What do we offer?
We’ll give you the tools you need to excel in your internship, including one-to-one coaching. You’ll enjoy a rare combination of autonomy and camaraderie, as you’ll manage your own project while being part of a friendly team.
You’ll not just be another pair of hands but a fully integrated team member with lots of self-responsibility. From there, we’ll trust you to do whatever it takes to deliver outstanding results. Go the extra mile and we’ll reward you with strategic development discussions and career opportunities.
We’ll support you even before you start with us through relocation and integration support. With the international interns community at Hilti you’ll never be bored. Further, the snow-draped mountains, crystal-clear lakes and marvelous landscapes in the Happy Valley invite for lots of outdoor activities.
Why should you apply?
We have an excellent mix of people, which we believe makes for a more vibrant, more innovative, more productive team.
So, if you have no knowledge of construction, that’s fine with us. We’re more interested in your ability, commitment and drive to succeed.
What you need is:
- To be a student in Mechanical or Chemical Engineering, Materials Science or related field of study.
- Good knowledge of English required
- Interest in hands-on lab work
- Ability to work independently, as well as part of a team
- A strategic approach and good problem-solving skills
