We are looking for new members to join our team! We have several spots in different teams opening up. Are you interested in helping us on the road to the Solar Decathlon Competition and enrolled as a student at TU Delft, tell us why you should be part of our team in a motivation letter and explain in which role you’re interested. Send your motivation letter (max. 250 words) and CV to firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a member of the Partners and Budget committee, you will be looking for new partners or other business opportunities. It is only possible to make our daring ideas a reality with the help of amazing companies. Because only together we can make the best strategies and products by sharing ideas, experiences and resources.
As the site designer, you will design and develop the site plan for our prototype. You will help with the design of the deck, planters, seating places and mobility hub, together with our partners. You will work on modelling the design in Revit and help with pre-construction to prepare for our site design to actually be built. This is your opportunity to use your theoretical knowledge in practice!
You will develop a structural design for the ground floor and circulation core of our prototype. By incorporating the structure not as an independent element, but as a whole integrated part, we will reach the project's narrative. SUM aims for a flexible, modular, sustainable, affordable and circular design and therefore structural design. For this role, you will design and calculate, together with structural companies, the different structural elements for an actual build prototype.
As the Climate Systems Designer, you will design and develop innovative ventilation and heating systems for our prototype together with our partners. You will work on integrating and dimensioning the mechanical equipment for a two-storey residential prototype that will be actually built. This is your opportunity to use your theoretical knowledge in practice!
As the Building Management System Designer (BMS), you will be responsible for developing an innovative way to monitor and control various smart building applications in our prototype. You will design a system that can monitor and regulate the building's electrical and mechanical equipment such as power systems, lighting, and ventilation that will optimize the energy efficiency in a two-storey residential prototype. This is your opportunity to use your theoretical knowledge in practice, learn from our industry partners, and gain valuable experience as a BMS designer!
As the Hydraulic Engineer, you will be working on the concept and design of sanitary and storm control networks, the dimensioning of pumping equipment and water storage systems, the calculation of demand for drinking and/or treated water, the designing of the hydraulic network, storage tanks, stormwater harvesting system and the dimensioning of the hot water system and the recirculation system for all the HVAC. Together with our partners you will design these hydraulic systems for a prototype that we will build ourselves.
