Do you want to combine your theoretical knowledge of mechanical engineering with practical experience and solve challenging tasks in an inspiring environment?

Join us – as soon as possible – and become Student Assistant in Offshore Cable Installation – Project Development where you’ll influence decisions and handle tasks on your own, thereby contributing with your knowledge and expertise.

  • assist in creating and maintaining an overview of the different static and dynamic influences to be accounted for with regard to cable installation solutions
  • assist in developing cable installation guidelines and incorporate lessons learned into new designs and solutions.

Your competences include that you

  • are currently studying for your master’s degree in mechanical engineering – or have just graduated from your bachelor’s programme
  • have studied hydrodynamics or wave dynamics
  • have worked with mechanics – and understand the strength of materials – during your studies
  • are able to perform basic programming (e.g. MATLAB, VBA)
  • can prove a strong track record in logical problem-solving and technical report writing in English.

Furthermore, analytical skills (including finite element analysis) will be greatly advantageous.
