Intern or thesis student - Product development of innovative fastening systems
What's the role?
As part of our development and testing team you will be responsible for developing and testing innovative fastening systems for the construction industry. Besides working experimentally, you will drive your project like a project leader.
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 our development and testing team. You’ll work closely with our experts to develop innovative product systems. You will drive your own feasibility study. Key responsibilities will be clarification of the task, set up your own Duty description, search morphologies, create concepts and try them out.
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:
- BSc/MSc level study in mechanical engineering or a related discipline
- Skills in Microsoft Office
- Creativity, self-reliance and perseverance
- Background in CAD (NX) is a plus
