In search of Internship/Thesis - Software Engineering/Application Development for the Industry

Are you interested in developing a touch application to optimize the management of a plastics injection process via IoT? Would you like to gain a professional experience that allows you to realize the important role of software engineering during your internship? Then this internship could meet your expectations.
We have an available internship and/or thesis in our Product Development Hub team in Seraing.

You will assist in the development of a Human Machine Interface (HMI) to assist a qualified operator working in the field of plastic injection moulding.

  • This interface will be tactile and available from an industrial Windows PC.

  • It will allow the operator to consult different types of information, to inject other information (via capacitive screen, keyboard, handwriting recognition or voice, ...) but also to interact with the workflows of an ERP.

  • The application must also enable communication with a printer, an NFC/RFID barcode reader and other industrial peripherals.

  • The application code must be clearly documented so that it can be handled very easily by another person.

On prolongation, depending on your availability, we will consider extending this HMI with a Microsoft Hololens headset (augmented reality headset) to allow the operator to work in hands-free mode.

What do we expect from you?

  • You study computer sciences (Bachelor of computer science minimum)

  • You're autonomous, curious and rigorous

  • You are interested in "user experience" (UX) and "experience design" (XD).

  • You master the development of Windows applications and the development of the web (Full-stack) - (the technologies to be used are not yet defined, but the choice will be subject to limitations).

  • Knowledge of an ERP and processes related to production / manufacturing is a plus.

  • No knowledge in the field of plastic injection is required.

  • You communicate fluently in French and/or English

What do we offer you?

You will be guided by industry experts to help you understand the conditions and specifications.
You will be supported on a daily basis by an IT expert with experience in managing large-scale projects and managing teams of developers.

Location: Sirris, rue du Bois St Jean 12, 4102 Seraing - Parc Scientifique du Sart-Tilman (reachable by bus).
