Tessenderlo (BEL) or Bevaix (CH) – 4 to 6 months

Subject: Thermal and electrical modelization of an integrated current sensor

Project Description

As an intern at Melexis, you will be engineering current sensor solutions for automotive EV applications.

More specifically, you will:


     Focus on one current sensor family, called the integrated current sensors

     Learn how a current sensor is characterized for the automotive market

    Develop an electrical model that fits the measurements and the characterization done by the R&D department

     Understand at system level how our sensor is integrated and thermally protected against overheating

    Develop a tool that based on the maximum current, the ambient temperature and the expected performance will provide guidance on the required cooling at system level


        Self-motivated student, eager to learn, curious and enterprising with strong problem-solving mindset

        Good understanding of heat transfers and electronics

        (Strong) experience with Matlab Simulink. Python or C++ are a plus

        Experience in automotive thermal management is a plus


Melexis Current sensing branch has increased significantly in the past few years, closing projects with major OEMs such as Tesla (X/S/3/Y), Renault (Zoé, E-TECH) or BYD. Supported by the growing electrification of vehicles, Melexis is expanding its current sensing branch: upon excellent work and strong motivation, this Master Thesis or Internship will lead to a permanent position offer.


Joining Melexis for your internship is the opportunity to build up your know-how in a high-tech, international and dynamic company, benefit from the experience and training of our experts and enjoy the welcoming and friendly atmosphere of our teams. The Bevaix office is specialized in Hall Sensors and Wireless technology and counts 70 employees. The Tessenderlo office is the headquarter with a focus on all sensors and actuators.
