Thermo-management Motor/Inverter (CAD & CFD)

The Fifth Mode of Transportation – Tachyon Hyperloop

Combine controlled levitating of a capsule in a near vacuum tube with an electrical propulsion system and you might have a hyperloop in a nutshell. We at Tachyon are certain that revolutionizing the transport sector with high innovation in combination with sustainability is not just possible, but necessary for a bright and exciting future for every one of us. Be a part of a fascinating and groundbreaking mission and help us establish a new highly innovate green-tech sector in Germany and Europe

About this position

The electrical powertrain is a huge performance factor of our pod. It enables us to reach strong acceleration values. To be able to extract this performance consistently during the whole run, motors and inverters need to be cooled adequately. Therefore, we are searching for someone who is interested in the constructive and simulative design

Requirements for position

  • Preferably studying Mechanical Engineering, Physics, CES
  • Good understanding of thermodynamics and heat transfer
  • Ideally previous knowledge of CAD,
  • CFD Simulation and 1D-simulation
  • Willingness and dedication to the project
  • Living in Aachen

What will be your tasks

  • Designing the cooling circuit for electromechanical components
  • Collaboration on cross-group tasks(such as testing, manufacturing)
  • Participation in group and team meetings

What do we offer

  • Opportunity to apply your theoretical knowledge in practice and to implement your own ideas in a motivated and exciting environment
  • Surround yourself with a group of extraordinary students who all want more from their studies
  • Contact with potential employers and establishment of a network (in industry and research)
  • Pre-start-up experience
  • Advantages for career-start through project experience
