DIVISION Clean Energy Systems

Do you want challenges? Join the automotive revolution in a group that puts innovation at the heart of its strategy.


With 33,000 employees in 31 countries and a turnover of 8 billion euros in 2017, Plastic Omnium is the world leader in intelligent automotive exterior systems, clean energy systems and complex modules.


The Clean Energy Systems Division is the world leader in energy storage systems. It employs 7,500 people in 36 industrial sites.


Our ambition? Provide automotive manufacturers with advanced equipment and solutions to develop the clean and connected car of tomorrow



Besides the fuel systems, Clean Energy Systems is one of the main suppliers of depollution systems.  Research programs as well as development programs specific to new vehicles move forward to answer as quickly as possible the new requests of the market, in the core business of the Division (Fuel systems and Depollution), but also in new energy solutions.- hydrogen storage and fuel cells


The Research Centre of Plastic Omnium located in Brussels is fully dedicated to innovations in those three lines of products.


Objective of the internship

The Intern-Model Based Software Development and Testing will work on the development of real-time solutions for the control models and the execution on controllers. The work includes development, testing and integration in the build system. State-of-the-art control algorithms will have to be developed, deployed, tested, integrated in the build system and researched. All control algorithms will be interfaced to physical inputs/outputs or buses. Custom developments may be needed on a case-by-case basis. He/she will make sure that the products fulfil the corresponding requirements.
