Mechanical Engineering | Thermodynamics & fluid engineer

As a thermodynamics & fluid engineer you will work on high-tech systems involving power conversion, embedded computing, cabinets and magnetics. Where you will be responsible for the thermodynamic behavior, flow, adequate cooling solutions and design for thermal control.  You will be involved in the entire design process. This includes responsibilities such as developing and optimizing detailed CAD designs, simulating, selecting adequate components, having discussions with our customers, doing tests, qualification and advising your team on how to bring the product to the edge of what is thermodynamically possible. Your contribution enables to design at the ultimate limit of power density, which can make our products highly competitive.
During the entire design phase a variety of qualification and simulation assets are available. For example, climate chambers, thermographic cameras, thermal monitoring equipment and numerous simulation software packages. Moreover, in-house production facilities enables you to create state of the art cooling solutions on short notice with the highest quality.


  • BSc, BEng or MSc Mechanical Engineering
  • Familiar with CAD software and simulation software (e.g. NX simcenter, Flotherm, STAR-CCM+)
  • Knowledge of thermodynamic design and fluid dynamics
  • Affinity with design for manufacturability (DFM)
