Are you a mechanical engineer looking to specialize further towards structural mechanics? And would you be interested in developing towards thermal or dynamic modelling as well? Read on! 


Each one of our companies differentiates itself in its own domain with unique expertise and skills. This way they help customers improve their performance and achieve more. On the basis of their passion for technology our companies are able to combine forces. By sharing knowledge and working together we increase our social impact. Demcon multiphysics is a mechanical and process technology specialist in heat transfer, fluid dynamics and structural analysis.


In the position of FEM specialist, you are responsible for a great diversity of technical questions within the field of structural mechanics. You work on complex projects that require thorough structural analyses, using (among others) linear and non-linear FEM analyses. Using your calculations, you advise the customer, experienced mechanical engineers or the project team as a whole. Projects are usually focused on semicon, renewable energy and medical industries. Materials are usually metals and composites.

Other responsibilities include:

  • Analyzing the technical issue using simulations. Usually, we work with Ansys, Matlab Simscape or Solidworks.
  • You analyze the usability of your results and you process them into a solid advise for customers.
  • You continuously enhance your knowledge on structural analysis.
  • Occasionally, you take on analysis on heat transfer or dynamics.
  • Cooperating with other engineers in multidisciplinary teams.


  • A completed Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace, Physics or equivalent.  
  • At least three years of experience as a mechanical engineer. Here, you have gained experience with FEM / FEA  and you are interested in specializing in this subject. 
  • A fluent command of the English and Dutch languages.


Demcon is a dynamic, growing and innovative company. We place great value in a pleasant workplace and provide you with the necessary means to achieve that. In the office, this translates into double screens and sit-stand desks, as well as great coffee and free fresh fruit. Personal attention is key and we actively discourage overtime because there is no place like home.

Furthermore, we offer:

  • A good, competitive salary;
  • 31 days off and 8% holiday allowance;
  • A good pension scheme at Zwitserleven;
  • Follow training or courses at the Demcon Academy to further develop your skills;
