Core activities
For the Manufacturing Technology department we are looking for an enthusiastic and inquisitive trainee MBO Mechanical Engineering (3rd or 4th year).

  • The department consists of experienced engineers who, among other things, are involved in improving the modules of BD Kiestra.
  • You work on a project with your colleagues in the department, in which you have regular contact with the other departments of BD Kiestra.
  • During your internship you will gain experience with Inventor / SolidWorks, the use of Vault / PDM and you will learn to look at designs in a critical way.
  • Because the assembly of the modules takes place at the same location as your internship, you always have the opportunity to view a component or sub-assembly up close. This allows you to form a good picture of the operation.
  • At the end of the internship you have developed a broad view of the possible activities of a mechanical engineer.

What do we offer

  • An independent (learning) environment, with help from your colleagues where necessary
  • A generous internship allowance
