Are you fascinated by computational fluid dynamics and new analysis capabilities? Do you want to learn more about the industrial applications of the physics of fluids? Do you want to improve your skills in the use of advanced numerical, experimental and data processing investigation tools in an international business?
Become a part of Group Quality in Kamstrup
Kamstrup is one of the world's leading manufacturers of intelligent metering solutions for energy and water consumption. As an intern, you will become part of the Flow Laboratory team in Group Quality, where you will be included on an equal footing with engineers and researchers who are dedicated to ensuring the highest accuracy of our water and heat meters. The team maintains and improve the test benches that are used to verify the meters, while conducting long term research on specific fluid dynamics phenomena and research methods. In this inspiring work environment you will have the opportunity to strengthen your personal development as well as professional competencies.
An internship at the leading edge of computational fluid dynamics research
During your internship, you will conduct a research project focusing on the development of automated analysis methods by Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). The work may preferably convert into a master’s thesis (graduation project) in collaboration with your university; the exact subject (and timing) of the project may vary depending on your interests, Kamstrup’s needs and the eventual requirements from the supervising professor. Possible research fields are:
- Improvement of uncertainty quantification and robust optimization techniques using CFD
- Implementation of ultrasound propagation models into existing simulation tools
- Investigation of thermal flow stratification, mixing, boundary layer transition using experiments and/or CFD
Your project will cover all aspects of research: identification of the targets, development of an investigation plan, performing of tests (experimental or numerical, in principle using the tools available at Kamstrup), post-processing of the results obtained and presentation of the findings in a scientific paper/report. The report might be considered for publication in a peer-reviewed journal.
We are seeking a student, who is motivated to push the boundaries of knowledge and technology in a rapidly evolving company. You are studying a master’s degree in engineering, physics or similar, and have a good theoretical background in fluid mechanics. Prior knowledge of OpenFOAM and coding/scripting are an asset. Since the internship is well suited for a master’s (graduation) project, you are expected to take responsibility for the research and independently seek solutions to the issues that may arise along the way. As a person, you are capable of working independently with a sense for detail, while being open-minded and reliable in your daily work.
Kamstrup is an international company, therefore it is a requirement that you are fluent in written and spoken English.
We offer you more than an internship
We offer you an exciting opportunity to improve your skills in an advanced research environment with highly qualified colleagues. There will be many opportunities for both professional and personal development as well as seeking inspiration, help and sparring in everyday life. If you are ready, we offer an exciting and inspiring autumn with great challenges.
At Kamstrup, we do very much to encourage the bonding between our interns across the organisation. In 2019, we were elected by Aarhus Municipality and Studenterhus Aarhus as the best internship company in East Jutland based on our work with interns. In addition, we offer many employee benefits, such as a great canteen scheme, free fruit, fitness facilities, in-house dentist, hairdresser and a free health care clinic.
