Discover your career with us at Siemens Digital Industries Software!

At Siemens Digital Industries Software, we blur the boundaries between industry domains by integrating the virtual and physical, hardware and software, design and manufacturing worlds. With the rapid pace of innovation, digitalization is no longer tomorrow’s idea. We take what the future promises tomorrow and make it real for our customers today. Where today meets tomorrow. Our culture encourages creativity, welcomes fresh thinking and focuses on growth, so our people, our business, and our customers can achieve their full potential.

STAR-CCM+ is a multi-physics engineering simulation software package.  Every simulation needs a volume mesh.  STAR-CCM+ provides a number of different types of meshing algorithms that will generate high quality surface and volume meshes from initial discrete and CAD models.  The meshing team also provides algorithms for surface preparation tools and develops workflows to go from initial import surface to volume mesh for simulation.  The surface meshing team creates surface meshes used by all of the downstream volume meshers in STAR-CC\M+.

A Surface Meshing Development Intern will assist with testing and/or development of meshing related development features.  This may include manual testing, developing automated tests, 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 are seeking a motivated Master’s or PhD student who has past meshing experience. You will get the opportunity to:

  • Assist with testing of meshing related development features, which may include manual testing, developing automated tests, test analysis, etc.
  • Create test cases and suggest possible tests for the automated testing suites.
  • Profile code to evaluate performance and do an initial analysis of bugs
  • Submission of bug reports from the above testing
  • Evaluate and provide feedback on the usability of certain features and workflows.
  • Develop/modify scripts for collection and analysis of test results
  • Profiling of certain features to find performance bottlenecks
  • Initial analysis of incoming bug reports
  • Independently evaluate and provide feedback on the usability of certain features or workflows


  • Currently enrolled in a university pursuing a master’s degree or PhD in Mechanical Engineering, Scientific Visualization, Aerospace Engineering, Computational Science, Computer Science or a related field
  • Past experience with meshing
  • Classroom or practical exposure to multi-physics simulation tools for CFD or FEA.
  • Classroom or practical experience with at least one commercial package, preferably Siemens NX, Solidworks, CATIA or ProEngineer/Creo that includes mesh generation
  • Classroom or practical experience with commercial CFD or Multiphysics software such as STAR-CCM+ or Ansys
  • Knowledge of Java, C++, Python, Linux Shell or equivalent programming language
  • Experience working on both Windows and Linux operating systems
  • Genuine interest in the simulation of real-world engineering problems using computational methods
