Summary / Role Purpose

This engineer will join as an Intern (m,f,d) in the Mechanical Business Unit.

This position supports the development of our core computational mechanics capabilities. We are involved in the entire software life cycle, from research, planning, development, testing, documentation, and services. The intern will pursue tighter integration of the python programming language with our core computational mechanics physics engine (MAPDL), to allow users of the physics engine to extend and customize its behavior with the help of popular scientific python packages. In addition,the intern shall improve the architecture of our market-leading desktop application (Mechanical), which is written in C++, C#, javascript, and python. The intern may also help with pyAnsys, which brings our computational physics tools into the hands of python programmers.

This internship is a full time paid position for 6 months.
