About the Company:
The partner is an international trading and consulting business which identified significant gaps in international shipping. We’d like to turn those gaps into the opportunity with the help of technology and change the way the world is trading.
Do you want to change the world? Then you should apply.
The purpose of the project is to validate the concept for a new kind of hybrid unmanned aircraft from technical perspective.
Conduct aerodynamics research based on the concept to determine the components, weight, payload, maximum altitude and distance of the aircraft. Shortly saying, to prove the aircraft we have in mind is going to fly, and if so, how long, how fast and how far.
To be determined closer to the intern selection process
- Computational aerodynamics
Expertise and Skills Needed:
- Aerospace engineering
