Intern or thesis student - Simulation model for innovative battery-direct fastening tools

Liechtenstein, Schaan
Reference No: 15650

What's the role?

You will be working in a cross-functional team to help bring the next generation of battery nailers to life. You will develop and improve a simulation model which will reflect the real tool behavior. Based on the results, you will develop and implement concepts to improve and optimize the power electronics of the tool, and further differentiate our tools from the competition.

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 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 electronics group in the Business Unit Direct Fastening. You’ll work closely with our experts to develop the next generation of innovative battery-actuated direct fastening tools.

Your key responsibilities will be the development and improvement of a simulation model which considers the power losses and the dynamic behavior of the tool, and use this model to implement your concepts first in the simulation, then in a real tool. The concepts you develop will help the tool be faster and more efficient, and your model will help the team make decisions regarding the modifications planned for the project

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:

  • Bachelor or Master student in Electrical Engineering or similar
  • Proficient in simulation software such as Matlab/Simulink
  • Passion for developing innovative solutions as part of an interdisciplinary, cross-functional team
  • Strong communication skills, with excellent English and interpersonal skills
  • Passion for innovation and product development
