Aerodynamics Engineer

Updated: Sep 21, 2020

If you’re really passionate about aerodynamics, you should be able to apply your knowledge on multiple fields, including motorsport, more exactly car aerodynamics, because we need our car to drive as a plane...but stay on the ground, so welcome to the Aerodynamics Department.

Our duty is to calculate, design, simulate and manufacture the aerodynamic parts of the vehicle, such as wings, spoilers and bodywork of the car. We need a complex team that includes both people with dexterity to make the parts and good designers who can understand the aerodynamic principles so that they can use them to our advantage. You will need to perform all the necessary calculations and simulations and, if needed, modify the CAD designs in order to achieve the required performance 

Together we must learn to work efficiently and organized so that each member of the team knows what he has to do so that any member can use his work without problems. The ideal candidate should have a big desire to get his hands dirty!

Responsibilities and duties

  • Every design must follow the very specific competition rules

  • Make a realistic design in able to be easy to manufacture

  • Keep in mind to realize cost-efficient designs

  • Prepare Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations 

  • Interpret results, propose recommendations for improvement and how changes will make an impact

  • Design parts, prepare for, and conduct, full-scale tests on 3D printed parts, and provide feedback

  • Prepare clean and clear technical reports and documentation of activity for project management.

Qualifications and skills required

  • Good knowledge of aerodynamics 

  • Know how to read and how to realize Engineering Drawings (2D) 

  • Good thermal transfer and fluid dynamics knowledge

  • Familiarity with geometry creation, simplification and data management within CATIA

  • Experience in working with CFD simulation software

  • Interpret results

  • CAD Software

Nice to have

  • Experience in creating aerodynamics profiles

  • Hands-on experience
