Surface Meshing Intern  

Siemens Digital Industries Software is seeking a software development intern in the development of CAE  Applications to contribute to our Simcenter STAR-CCM+ meshing software. The meshing division develops workflows to go from initial import surface to volume mesh for simulation. 

Specifically, you will be an  intern for the surface meshing team. Simcenter STAR-CCM+ is a highly scalable, general purpose, multi-physics application that provides an  end-to-end user experience with integrated CAD, meshing, physics modeling and in situ post processing  tools.  

  • A Meshing Development Intern will assist with testing and/or development of meshing related development features. This may include manual testing, developing automated tests, and test  analysis. The intern may also be asked to independently evaluate the usability of a feature or   workflow. Depending upon the background of the intern, they may also be asked to do an initial  analysis of bugs.
  • We will help you achieve your goals by surrounding you with smart, engaged colleagues from  around the world that will share their time to help you learn STAR-CCM+, the discipline of creating high quality software and improve your understanding of the fascinating and challenging problems our customers work with us to solve.
  • Working from home is a viable option in time zones near our primary development offices (e.g., Austin, TX, Lebanon, NH, Seattle, WA, Coralville, IA).

  • Suggest and create test cases for automated testing suites. 
  • Evaluate and provide feedback on the usability of certain features and workflows. 
  • Develop or modify scripts for the collection and analysis of test results. 
  • Profile certain features to find performance bottlenecks. 
  • Perform initial analysis of incoming bug reports. 
  • Based on experience, results of the above tasks and the length of the internship, the intern may also be given additional tasks in support of developing meshing algorithms.
