Internship 'GC of the future': new carrier gas solutions

In Enschede, 30 colleagues work closely together, each with their own specialism. The organization can be described as informal and people-oriented. The lines are short, colleagues are helpful and accessible, and often fun activities are organized such as “Who can make the best spareribs” contest!

Working at Qmicro brings the best of two worlds together: the informal and small-scale setting in Enschede, supplemented by the professionalism and strong market position of the Swiss parent company Sensirion.

About the internship

We are always looking for enthusiastic and skilled interns who, without doubt, will fit in our informal yet professional team. We believe that an intern can do great things and have fun in our stimulating high-tech environment where there is lots to learn with qualified guidance.

Qmicro’s gas analyzer is based on gas chromatography (GC) and we always want to try out new things, push boundaries and set new standards with innovative technology. Therefore, we are working on the ‘GC of the future’ and have challenging graduation internships. In this internship the student will work on new carrier gas solutions in the multidisciplinary fields of physics, chemistry and MEMS/chip technology. The concept theory should be evaluated and the best strategy should be selected. Then the feasibility should be verified via designing, creating and testing a demonstrator prototype. If the feasibility is proven, the outcome of the work will be a concept design for our future GC instrument. We ask you to send your CV & motivation letter and if it is a match, we invite you to come by to discuss the topic in detail.

About Qmicro

At Qmicro a group of enthusiastic and passionate people work on their own product line of gas analyzers. These are instruments with which you can accurately determine the gas composition of a gas mixture. The key of these devices is that they use chip technology and special production methods that make them small, accurate and fast. And with this, Qmicro is conquering the market.

In a diverse and professional R&D team, they design all components themselves, from metal parts and electronics to their own microchips, and they develop their own analysis software. Qmicro instruments are high-end and high-performance, which is the reason they often have to pioneer. Everyone is helpful and easy to approach, so if you have a challenge you can always spar with colleagues to come to the best solution.

Because all facets of technology come together in the instrument, it offers you the opportunity to develop yourself in various areas. So, you are not only working in your own field of expertise. In addition, they not only design their own products, but also build and test the devices themselves so everything happens under one roof.

As of February 2021, Qmicro is part of the Swiss Sensirion AG, a leading supplier of digital microsensors and systems such as gas and liquid flow sensors, differential pressure sensors and air quality sensors. With their support and broad expertise, Qmicro has the unique opportunity to accelerate further growth and development.

That is why they are happy to welcome you to their informal team of smart engineers to together develop excellent high-tech products.
