 Physical Metrology, Technology and Applied Physics Internships

Apply for one of these internships through the Internship Program (IP) (Deadline February 15/October 1) or the campus internship track of the Study and Internship Program (SIP) (Deadline February 15).
 

  

         Internship at the Heinrich-Blasius-Institute for Physical Technologies

                             at Hamburg University of Applied Sciences

hamburg

Supervisor

Stephan Rhein / Henry Bruhns

Project

Photoacoustic spectroscopy (PAS) of hydrocarbons

 

Using PAS it is possible to measure sensitive and selective molecules even in trace amounts. The aim of the project is to identify different molecules in a mixture and to predicate the concentrations of each of them. The applications can be found in medical diagnostics and data logging for natural gas.

Tasks

Conducting and analyzing experiments

Requirements

Basic knowledge of lasers and optics

Language Skills

English

Duration

min. 4 months

Possible Beginning

Feb.15 application deadline: internship betw. Sep./Oct. & Feb.

Oct.1 application deadline: internship betw. March & Aug.

Earlier beginnings may be possible depending on professor's availability

Credits

15

Payment

 Internship in Physical Sealing Technology

at Münster University of Applied Sciences

muenster

Supervisor

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Alexander Riedl

Project

Life-time prediction of fibre-, PTFE- and graphite- based gasket in metallic flange connections

Until now, there exists a deep knowledge in short time behavior of gaskets used in the power generation-, the chemical- and the petrochemical industry. Right know the University of Applied Science in Muenster has started a research program for developing life time prediction models for bolted flange connections with gaskets mentioned above. Within that project a student can help to measure and to evaluate experimental data.

Tasks

Theoretical analysis of different papers concerning life-time prediction.

Experimental work with flanges and different gasket types especially for chemical and petrochemical applications. This includes assembly of bolted joints as well as stress and leakage measurements. The test results have to be evaluated.

Requirements

 

Experience in experimental work. Knowledge of MS-Excel and ideally LabView.

Language Skills

Preferably basic knowledge in German, but not mandatory

Duration

2-6 months

Possible Beginning

Feb.15 application deadline: internship betw. Sep./Oct. & Feb.

Oct.1 application deadline: internship betw. March & Aug.

Earlier beginnings may be possible depending on professor's availability

Credits

Depends on home university; possible analogous design to the internal practical phase + recommendation for recognition

Payment

Depends on qualification; possibly 500€/month
