  • Review of the existing qualification files and identification of gaps
  • Design, set-up and commissioning of testing device
  • Preparation of test specimens and performance of laboratory tests e.g. pressure tests, leak tests, thermal cyclic tests, etc.
  • Establishment of technical documents: test program, test report, qualification report, etc
  • Optional: testing and improvement of the plug removal process 


Candidate profile: 


  • Final year Engineering student (permanent contract opportunities after your internship!)
  • Master Degree in mechanical engineering, mechatronics preferred
