Switzerland: Zurich

Internship (m/f) 80-100% - Feature Classification and Processing

In sheet metal forming, components are often manufactured in several steps. For simulation and tool creation, the states between these steps are needed. Currently, users can achieve this by applying various geometry operators. The goal of this internship is to automate this process. The user selects a specific area of the component. Afterward, this area should be analyzed, and a suggestion of the required operators and their parameters should be generated for the user.

The complexity of these areas varies from simple to highly complex. Once the simple cases are solved, the complexity can be extended as desired. Solutions can involve geometric analyses of components, heuristic methods, machine learning approaches, or a mix of these approaches. The implementation will be in C++.

Your tasks

  • Automate the process of feature uncoiling
  • Classify given areas of a component
  • Suggest geometry operators and parameters
  • Use geometric analyses, heuristic methods, machine learning or a mix

Your profile

  • Sound knowledge of OO analysis, design and programming
  • Good programming skills in C++
  • Strong technical interest, willingness to get involved in complex technical issues
  • Interest in working with geometry modifications (meshes, faces, shells)
  • Team Player with a strong commitment to problem solving
  • Good knowledge of English required. German would be a plus

Our offer

  • A challenging role in a respectful and global working environment 
  • Being part of a world-leading, high-end CAE software company
  • Working on cutting edge technologies for the automotive industry
  • Excellent balance between your working life and your private life through flexible working hours  

This role is based in Zurich. Start as soon as possible. The duration at 100% workload is 6 months. The minimum workload is 80%, extending the duration accordingly.

Start of work is as soon as possible. Please note that we only consider applicants that have the legal right to work in the respective location. We will only consider direct applications. We are looking forward to receiving your application.
