Your career opportunities

Student trainees
and interns

During your college studies, you can explore both theory and practice, and deepen your technical knowledge at the DRÄXLMAIER Group. You will cooperate actively, gain insights into company processes and build a network of interesting contacts, including technical and management personnel as well as specialists. All of this will make your professional orientation much easier.

We offer both mandatory internships as well as voluntary internships in business and technical areas. An internship generally lasts between three and six months, and you will receive a fair compensation from us.

As part of a student trainee program, you are enrolled in a university or technical college, and work flexibly at the DRÄXLMAIER Group at the same time as you pursue your studies.

Do you want to study scientific topics in a practical environment? Apply now for a thesis study at DRÄXLMAIER; we welcome "cold" applications. We will closely review each topic and its possible applications, and speak to the right supervisors to assure optimum support in your thesis work.
