Battery Product Design Internship


The nature of my work at Tesla is confidential, so I am not able to share any specific information or images here. This page features a brief description based on current public knowledge.



I led the design of liquid cooling fittings for the next gen vehicle battery with emphasis on optimizing previous designs to be mass manufactured using injection molding, deep drawing and stamping. This required me to construct both financial models like cost estimation, as well as engineering models such as sealing and structural finite element analysis to inform design parameters.


I actively sought out and interfaced with vendors for DFM input and leveraged their capability and cost at scale to determine suitable manufacturers in a fast paced development cycle.

I studied the deformation of two-shot injection molded compliant fittings to improve assembly tolerances. I also supported new product development by conducting cell thermal isolation and failure tests to improve thermal behavior of the battery modules.
