What's your job?

Tata Steel produces and delivers strip steel in the form of coils. As soon as a coil is produced it carries an identification number until the next step in the production process. In hot strip mills this number is spray painted on multiple sides of a coil. Applying OCR to read Coil IDs can be a valuable tool to further automate coil handling. OCR is already applied in multiple production locations with varying accuracy, despite optimized lighting conditions and cameras.

In the research of OCR it's well known that performance very much depends on image preprocessing, the number of training examples and deep learning methods. Thousands of images of coils have been collected in one of our coil release stations where Coil ID numbers are applied. Your assignment is to develop a model which will measure the readbility of the coil ID using deep learning (such as OCR) and feature engineering.

Is this you?

We are looking for a bachelor or masters student skilled in computer vision or another discipline that offers computer vision in its curriculum (such as Data Science, Computer Science) for a 4-6 month internship. We expect you to be/have:

  • skilled in Python, OpenCV, Computer Vision and PyTorch or TensorFlow
  • able to work independently (determine research approach, analyze results, report)
  • critical and curious

What do we offer?

We offer you a paid internship with proper guidance. In consultation with you, we start with drawing up your assignment to make sure that it fits the requirements of your university. You can gain valuable experience within a large organization and Dutch only manufacturing industry. You can count on a no-nonsense and result-oriented organization, within which you can make a concrete contribution to the realisation of improvement objectives.

During your training period you can regularly participate in events such as student tours and lunch lectures. We also offer the possibility to make use of our Library Services. When you are in your final Master of Bachelor internship, you can temporarily become part of our internal Association for young professionals "The Magnet".

What is your department?

The project will be conducted within R&D department of Tata Steel IJmuiden with great opportunities for networking and being closely involved in the future developments.

Our ambition

Our ambition is to become a green, clean, and circular steel company that everyone is proud of. We aim to improve how people around the world work, live and move through sustainable steel. To succeed, we need talents like you. Will you join us in shaping the future?
