Internship: Ceramic Composite Manufacturing Engineer

Are you an Aerospace, Mechanical, or Materials engineering student who wants to join us to gain skills and support us in the manufacturing of next generation of wear-resistant and high-temperature stable components for the space industry?

Who are we?

At Arceon, we are developing cutting edge composite materials and structures which exhibit unique properties such as thermal stability from cryogenic to ultra-high temperatures, extremely low thermal expansion, lightweight, corrosion resistance, high specific strength, and no detectable particle release.

Arceon is working with partners such as TNO, Senior Aerospace Bosman, NLR, DLR, TU Delft, Pangea Aerospace, Eurekite, ESA, T-Minus, Agnikul, and Astrogate Labs to implement the ArCMC material in different market segments.

What will you focus on?

The internship assignment will focus on the manufacturing of CFRP material of different fibre architectures and different resin systems. The focus of this internship will be on the setting up a project and manufacturing plan to do investigation of various fiber architecture, resins, and manufacturing cycles. You will be creating material samples, creating documentation/job tracker , and testing prototypes at our workshop in Delft. The duration of this internship assignment will be 4-5 months and starting date will be February 1st , 2022.

Your tasks and responsibilities

You will support our design and manufacturing experts and work under their supervision and perform the following tasks:

  • Literature Study about manufacturing techniques of CMC parts.
  • Set up a project plan and work package for your internship together with your supervisors.
  • Define a manufacturing and testing plan for the material variants.
  • Use Classical Laminate theory to define the material characteristics of the samples.
  • Prepare CAD models for the equipment’s needed for the sampling.
  • Prepare a test plan to validate the material samples.
  • Document the finding of the internship in a report.

You are

  • A Master’s student in Aerospace/Mechanical/Materials Engineering.
  • A self-starter and willing to work in a dynamic start-up environment.
  • Interested in composite materials and the design and analysis of complex structures.
  • Interested in manufacturing and testing of composite material.
  • Basic knowledge of Classical laminate theory.
  • Willing to work in the workshop for prototyping and testing.
  • Passionate about the aerospace and composites industry.

What we offer

Arceon offers a dynamic entrepreneurial-driven work environment and flexible working hours. The active work culture and supervision provides all the necessary support to further expand your career in the aerospace and manufacturing industry.

At the end of the internship, the student will have sound knowledge of the novel CMC material as well as the design and manufacturing of composite structures. The candidate will have developed specific skills and hands-on experience working with composite materials.
