WHAT WILL YOU BE DOING?
In the department BEE, several technologies are developed that are essential to the future sustainability of industry. In particular, we focus on (1) industrial heat storage based on phase-change materials (PCM) or sensible heat and (2) high temperature industrial heat pumps, based on compression, thermo-acoustics or sorption technologies.
For this work, frequently new internship projects and graduation projects are available. The work focuses on both experimental work, related to materials testing and development and/or prototype testing, as well as numerical work, focusing on thermal performance of prototype designs. The focus of the work (numerical or experimental) can be arranged according to the preferences of the student.
WHAT DO WE REQUIRE OF YOU?
We have vacancies for MSc students with a technical background in chemistry, mechanical engineering or physics. We ask for motivated students that can run projects with a sufficient level of autonomy and are committed to contribute to a more sustainable society.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT OF YOUR WORK SITUATION?
We provide interesting and challenging student MSc internships and MSc graduation projects. You will be located in Petten. If you will do experimental work, you will receive lab training as part of your assignment, which is required to work in the ECN laboratories. You will be coached by highly experienced ECN employees. In addition, most of the time multiple student projects are running simultaneously, allowing for interaction with fellow students. Finally, ECN provides both a student allowance and an additional housing allowance for students living too far from ECN to commute on a daily basis.
