The Chair of Building Realization and Robotics at TUM collaborates in various EU Horizon2020 projects in the field of application of Robotics and Automation in Building Construction and Refurbishment. The chair is involved in a Horizon2020 project named BERTIM, which is focused on the manufacturing and installation of prefabricated walls in existing buildings. The goal is to assembly and install timber-construction modules with current and new robotic systems. Each module is unique and has different dimensions, therefore, the layout or design of the modules must be generated in a parameterized form using an appropriate software. Subsequently, the robotic assembly and installation must adapt to this flexible characteristics.

In order to strengthen our team at TUM we are looking for:

Student assistant (m/f) for programing robots with ROS


  • Student from the field of Mechanical Engineering, or Informatics, or Mechatronics, or Production or similar disciplines

Major duties and responsibilities:

  • Programing of robots with the software Robot Operating System (ROS) depending on a script generated in a computational design software

  • Assisting the scientific coordinators team

Essential skills and experience required:

  • Programming skills in C++ and Python

  • Experience with Robotic Operating System (ROS)

  • Fluent written and spoken English skills, German would be an advantage

  • Good team player

  • Strong motivation to learn the handling with different software applications such as e.g. parametric design

What we offer:

  • Prestigious projects of global prominence in the field of Robotics applied to building construction

  • A dynamic, interdisciplinary, and international team

  • Worldwide networking opportunities with leading Construction and Robotic experts

  • A modern working environment based at the TUM Campus in Munich

Applicants should submit electronically the following documents in PDF format only to Diese E-Mail-Adresse ist vor Spambots geschützt! Zur Anzeige muss JavaScript eingeschaltet sein! :

  • Cover letter with file name: “<surname>_BERTIM_RESEARCH_ASSISTANT_COVER”.
  • Detailed CV with file name: “<surname>_BERTIM_RESEARCH_ASSISTANT_CV”.
