Internship in Ground Segment System Engineering team

Internship title: Model-Driven Test Case Development

The reliable operation and reasonable evolution of a fleet of observation satellites is a continuous complex engineering challenge. In particular, the never-ending trade-off between stability and agility requires a sound selection of methodology and state-of-the-art engineering tooling.

In order to master the complexity, EUMETSAT has started and professionalized the usage of system models that are now available for utilization also in formal verification activities.

The intern will join the Satellite System Ground Segments (SGS) Division and support the Ground Segment System Engineering (GSSE) team.

SGS/GSSE is focusing on a structured approach of model-driven test case development at the moment and would benefit from a talented student interested in deep diving here.

The internship objective is the exploitation of system models for the design of test cases. There are three different aspects:

Understanding EUMETSATโ€™s system models and their potential to support and to guide test case design worthy for formal verification (e.g. with requirement references) Understanding the EUMETSAT usage of engineering tools (Enterprise Architect for system modelling, DOORS for requirement management, JIRA/X-RAY for test case design) Method Definition and Elaboration for the design of test cases ready to support verification using the system models

The all over work product of the internship is a description document that may serve as basis for further considerations.

Duties

As an intern you will:

Work in a true space systems engineering department at the very top of engineering methodology also under discussion in other domains; Directly contribute to ongoing SGS/GSSE activities through new insights and methodology proposals; Contribute to the Systems Engineering discipline as a whole, by bringing together MBSE (model-based systems engineering) with the need of formal IVV (integration,verification and validation); Gather insights behind the scenes of a world class satellite fleet operator and a truly international organisation. In addition, the intern will support relevant day-to-day activities within the team.

LOCATION Darmstadt, Germany

QUALIFICATIONS

The internships are open to bachelor and master students with mandatory internship requirements in relevant disciplines such as Systems Engineering, Controls Engineering, Space or Aerospace Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Astronomy, Physics.
