Siemens – Summer internship

Offshore & Marine Center (OMC) is Siemens’ technology center for power systems for marine vessels such as passenger ferries, fishing boats and offshore vessels. We are pioneers in the field of low-emission solutions with our battery solutions which are developed and produced at OMC.  The innovation process continues, and we are searching for skilled and curious students to accompany us on our path to electrify the offshore and marine sectors.



The application should include the following:

  • CV summarizing education, work experience, relevant courses and proficiency levels in IT tools and languages.
  • Cover letter describing your motivation for the project(s) you are applying for, main areas of interest and how your knowledge and skills are relevant for the project.
  • Grade transcripts

The working languages are Norwegian and English.


As a summer intern at Offshore & Marine Center, you will have the opportunity to work with varied and challenging tasks in a supportive, innovative and inspiring R&D environment. For the summer of 2020, we offer the following internship projects in the Technology Department at Offshore & Marine Center in Trondheim:


Project A: Implement an FPGA-based oscilloscope.

Project B: Set up a real-time operating system in parallel with Linux on a multicore processor.

Project C: Transfer an existing power electronics application from processor to FPGA.

Project D: Develop printed circuit boards for our BlueDrive portfolio based on existing prototypes.

Project E: Test the possibility of applying infrared temperature measurement to the surface of power rails at high voltages.

Project F: Develop a digital twin of a battery ferry including the charging station and grid connection. This will be realized with Matlab Simulink as a complete three phase power system.

Project G: Participate in laboratory testing of a new inverter that is under development.

Project H: Big data analysis from battery systems
