Main Task

You will be in charge of the mechanical design of the accumulator (battery) – container which stores the highly flammable Lithium Polymer cells. This system is very regulated by the rules in terms of materials, fasteners and load cases, but it still offers a lot of possibilities for different design choices and solutions within the boundaries of those rules.

Your Profile

You should have advanced skills and a big interest in designing mechanical systems using CAD-software. Due to the high amount of rules governing this area, being systematic, thorough and having an eye for detail, while at the same time being creative and thinking outside the box is a plus. As there will be two people working on the same design, cooperation and synergy with that other person is very important.
