Internship | Development study for ICE Powertrains – TNO – Helmond

  • Helmond


About this position

The world needs powertrains with zero-environmental impact tomorrow, we create them today. Do you want to be a part of this? Come and join the TNO Powertrains department at the Automotive Campus in Helmond and help accelerating the energy transition for the most challenging powertrain systems in automotive, off-road and maritime.

What will be your role?

Powertrains for heavy equipment are not well suited nor feasible to electrify within acceptable timeframes. For these applications the combustion engine, running on sustainable fuels like hydrogen and methanol is a very attractive solution. Combining mature and robust engine technology with dedicated technology for these new fuels enables to accelerate the CO2 reduction for these challenging powertrains. Even more so, by use of advanced combustion concepts, there is also the potential for these engines to have ultra-low pollutant emissions, eliminating the need for costly aftertreatment. The contents of work at TNO span a wide range of topics: engine modelling on fuel injection, combustion and aftertreatment, development of engine scaling methodologies for large maritime engines and feasibility studies. Type of work is both numerical as well as experimental data analysis. Affinity and knowledge on combustion engines and thermodynamics is required. Experience with Matlab® and Matlab-Simulink® is highly recommended.

What we expect from you

  • You have an interest in numerical and experimental work.
  • Affinity with internal combustion engines.
  • Experience with computational tools: Matlab®.
  • You enjoy developing innovative solutions to technically challenging problems and have the right mix of intellectual curiosity and pragmatism.
  • What you’ll get in return

    You want to work on the precursor of your career; a work placement gives you an opportunity to take a good look at your prospective future employer. TNO goes a step further. It’s not just looking that interests us; you and your knowledge are essential to our innovation. That’s why we attach a great deal of value to your personal and professional development. You will, of course, be properly supervised during your work placement and be given the scope for you to get the best out of yourself. Naturally, we provide suitable work placement compensation.
