Description of the job
Are you looking for a Master Thesis? Would you like to discover the work of a Space Engineer? Then apply now! We look forward to you joining us.
Start: November / December
We are looking for a student to support the industrial architectural team of Airbus DS for the ongoing architectural definition phase of the LISA (Laser Interferometer Space Antenna).
Tasks & accountabilities
The main task of the successful candidate will be to establish a descriptive system model of the system architecture. The model shall be implemented using a model-based systems engineering (MBSE) approach, using adequate tools, and focus on
· describing the system functions on various levels,
· describing the product items, their interfaces, and respective dependencies.
· describing use cases, activity sequences, and functional flows for typical operational scenarios,
· quantitatively simulating and assessing system characteristics and behavior (e.g. signal latencies, signal acquisition, mechanism control sequences, etc.)
· visualizing stakeholder interactions and dependencies
Depending on available time and progress, efforts will also be made to
· integrate the descriptive model with reduced (simplified) disciplinary models (mechanical, thermal, optical) for specific subsystems and modules.
· define interface functions between certain disciplinary engineering models and integrate them with a central model.
This job requires an awareness of any potential compliance risks and a commitment to act with integrity, as the foundation for the Company's success, reputation and sustainable growth.
· Enrolled student (m/f) within Aerospace engineering, system dynamics and control engineering, cybernetics, physics, electrical Engineering or similar field of study
· dedication and persistence to achieve the goals and to keep improving the model
· good command of the English language, good communications skills and ability to work in a team efficiently
· basic/good knowledge of modern systems engineering methods
· ideally but not necessarily: familiarity with MBSE tools and model languages (e.g. SySML)
· basic/good programming skills in at least one standard programming language (Java, Python, C++, Matlab), basic familiarity with the interfaces to standard office applications (e.g. Excel),
· familiarity with one or more discipline engineering models (e.g. Zemax, Matlab/Simulink ,Nastran, Esatan, etc.) would be a plus
· Proficient knowledge of English required. German would be an asset
