Vehicle Propulsion Packaging, Background
We need to integrate more and more advanced technology in the car and reduce weight. To succeed with this we need to optimize the packaging space.
We are now looking for two students collaborating on a master’s thesis. In the future Powertrain Engineering at Volvo Cars needs to make room for more or improved technology – can you please challenge us!?! You will work with many experienced engineers in a big complex organization with high focus on future technology.
What you will do
Most things are possible to do if you think outside the box and we appreciate you coming with new eyes and different thinking. We look forward to see if you can help us with new design of components, maybe merge two components into one, simplify the packaging work and come up with new thinking.
What we will ask you to do for a certain area is:
– Optimize packaging space (improve geometry)
– Decrease weight
– Optimize functionality
– Cost reduction
We want both of you to spend most of your time with us at our headquarters in Gothenburg.
During this Thesis work you will be responsible for coming up with new ideas and suggestions that could be implemented in future cars provided within the frame of a master thesis.
Do you fit the profile?
We are looking for students from a Master Engineering program, preferably in Design & Product Development, Mechanical Engineering or equivalent education. To succeed in this Thesis work you need to understand the complexity of Powertrain Development and to have knowledge in CatiaV5 or equivalent.
On a personal level, you have strong communication and networking skills as you will be exposed to a continuous communication with various people involved in the development process. You are creative, solution focused and you take advantage of knowledge/technology/innovations from alternative industries. You have a holistic view combined with the ability to understand issues at detailed level.
Start timing is early January 2020 and duration is 20 weeks full time work (40h/week) at VCC for Master Thesis.
• ECTS (Academic Credits/”Högskolepoäng”) 30 ECT
• 2 students working together
