Working Student Design
and Prototyping (m/f/d)
(fixed-term contract, starting as soon as possible)

Realize your dream of doing exceptional things and be part of something bigger right from the beginning! We at ERC stand for the development of an electrical vertical takeoff and landing vehicle (eVTOL) that lasts beyond us! We work hard to achieve this goal – with passion, a pioneering spirit, and strong partners. As we are trustworthy, open and focused, we do not make empty promises. But we still need your commitment to be among the best on the long run!


We are seeking a highly motivated and talented working student to join our Aircraft Design department. In this role, you will have the opportunity to work on critical aspects of our scaled eVTOL prototype development, focusing on design and prototyping topics. This position is ideal for a master's level student looking to gain hands-on experience in the field.


  • Perform CAD-Design tasks for the scaled prototype especially for the internal structure design
  • Apply knowledge of typical model aircraft design and manufacturing strategies
  • Accelerate the prototyping process by 3D-printing different parts for the models
  • Assist in assembling and testing of the scaled prototype
  • Collaborate with the aerodynamics and conceptual design team to support the design and analysis of our eVTOL aircraft


you should …
  • Be currently enrolled in a master's program in Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, or a related field
  • Have experience with CAD-Design Software (preferred: Siemens NX)
  • Bring first hands on experience with developing a model aircraft (CAD Design, carbon/glass fiber aircraft structures)
  • Have a strong academic background in Aircraft Design, Mechanical Design and Material Science or Additive Manufacturing
  • Dispose of first hands on experience with FDM 3D-Printing
  • Bring enthusiasm for eVTOL technology and the future of urban air mobility
  • Have strong problem-solving skills and attention to detail
  • Have effective communication and teamwork skills
  • Have time alongside your studies to work 16-20h per week


  • A young, highly motivated and passionate team
  • Flat hierarchies and learning-from-mistakes approach
