During this internship, you will contribute to exciting projects to get hands-on, practical experience and learn more about what a career in innovative technology and product development can offer. As Awerian is a multi-disciplinary environment, you will work alongside talented people from a wide range of academic STEM backgrounds – from engineers to physicists – getting to learn from them, whilst also making your own mark on projects.

  • Must have completed at least 2 years of study by the time of the start of your internship (so students at the beginning of second year are very welcome to apply)
  • Enthusiastic and curious in nature. We want people who love to learn and get to the heart of a problem – and who do so enthusiastically!
