Student traineeships at Festo

Because theory is best when put into practice 

Student traineeships

The world of automation technology is a paradise for those with a thirst for knowledge: there’s plenty of scope for technophiles and lateral and unconventional thinkers. This is where theory meets practice. Take a peek behind the scenes and enhance your studies with a traineeship at Festo. You can do this in Germany or at one of our international Festo companies. We welcome prospective engineers and university students from a wide range of fields at our locations around the world.

Requirements

  • Enrolment at a college or university
  • Ability to work independently and responsibly
  • A high level of commitment and the ability to grasp things quickly
  • Good knowledge of Microsoft Office
  • A high capacity for teamwork
  • Relevant language skills are required for traineeships in an international setting

Duration of traineeship

The duration of the traineeship is based on the student’s conditions of study. The maximum duration is three months for voluntary traineeships. Delving into different areas is normally not possible in this case. You should ideally apply three to six months before you want your traineeship to begin. Short-term traineeship opportunities may also be available on occasion.

Key points

We are often looking for trainees in the following areas:

  • Research
  • Development and design
  • Testing
  • Product management
  • Marketing
  • Information technology
  • Finance
  • Human resources
  • Corporate communication
  • Corporate media
  • Corporate design

Advantages

  • Your chance to be right in the thick of things: integration in a team and involvement in ongoing projects
  • Space to put forward your own ideas and work independently
  • The chance to ‘try out’ which areas of work suit you best
  • The opportunity to develop your own network and exchange knowledge and experiences at regular trainee get-togethers
  • Fair compensation for the traineeship
  • The chance to continue your work as a student employee or to work on your thesis or dissertation at Festo

International traineeships

International experience is a key factor for success in the world of work. On a traineeship abroad, you soon become acquainted with different ways of thinking and working. You can benefit from intercultural exchange with colleagues from all over the world and establish your own network for your later career. Demonstrate your initiative and apply to the national Festo company that interests you, provided that you meet the following requirements:

  • Interest in working with others in an international setting
  • Good knowledge of English
  • Knowledge of the local language is an advantage
  • Other requirements arising from the area of work in question
