US Engineering Intern

About COBOD International

COBOD’s mission is to disrupt the global construction industry through world-class multifunctional construction robots based on 3D-printing systems. Faster. Better. Cheaper. We 3D printed Europe’s first building in 2017. Subsequently the first 2- and 3-story buildings in Belgium and Germany were made with our technology which is now in use on 5 continents.

We have an open-source strategy, partnering with customers, academic institutions, and suppliers world-wide, with more and more partners in the US, Canada, and Latin America.
