Intern or thesis student - Numerical simulation of mechanical anchors
What's the role?
Numerical simulation plays an important role for innovative fastening products development. The simulation of anchoring system to concrete under static/dynamic loading is a challenging topic. Your role in the project is to simulate the loading process of anchors in concrete under different loading conditions with the aim of supporting innovative mechanical anchors development.
Start date is flexible to the student's availability (ideally from Feb/Mar 2021), 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 30,000 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 project on innovative mechanical anchors development.
You’ll work closely with our experts to develop suitable simulation tools to be able to simulate the setting and loading processes of mechanical anchors in concrete under static and dynamic loading, and to use them for parameter study with the aim of optimizing the mechanical anchor design.
Your key responsibilities will be to give simulation support on innovative mechanical anchor development, which includes the simulation tools development, the parameter study, and to give suggestions on innovative anchor design based on simulation. Meanwhile some experiments will be conducted as well.
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:
- Master`s student in civil/mechanical engineering (or comparable)
- Some experience with software on numerical simulation
- Passion for innovation and product development
- Good skills in English both writing and speaking
- Enthusiasm to learn and drive to succeed
We take our time to get to know you. As part of your recruitment process, you’ll get to talk to your internship coach as well as your HR Manager who both can answer some of your burning questions.
Hilti is an equal opportunity employer.
