Are you a student in the field of mechanical engineering, mechatronics, industrial design engineering or electronics? Are you up for making a difference, with Ultimaker as your first step into the professional world? Then please read on!

Note: Internship positions starting at Q3/Q4 of 2019 have been already filled. For the next internship period (starting in Q1 2020), we will begin a new application process from October 2019.

What will you be doing?

You could be assigned tasks that support the design, integration, implementation, testing, and qualification of various Ultimaker (sub)systems. The decision on your assignment will be made in consultation with you.

What will your day at the office look like?

During the morning standup, you touch base with your team and discuss who will do what and whether someone needs your help. During that meeting, you can also talk with your team about your assignment. After working on your assignment, it’s lunch time. Over lunch in the canteen, you hear about a cool new 3D model. You plan to 3D-print it later at the office. During the afternoon, you are busy helping a senior member of your team with PCB development and testing setups for the new Ultimaker electronics.

What will your team look like?

You will be working closely with talented Electronics Engineers, Mechanical Engineers, Software Engineers and Material and Process Engineers in interdisciplinary teams guided by a Project Manager.
