Internship

Are you still unsure about which form of apprenticeship or which career path suits you best? No problem - a commercial or technical / industrial internship will give you an insight into the varied day-to-day work at Behringer.

We offer school students and university students the opportunity to get to know everyday working life at Behringer with an internship, holiday job or working student activity. You can also get a taste of our apprenticeships as part of a school internship such as OiB, BORS and BOGY and thus find out whether you like the activities of the job profile.

We also offer exciting topics for a technician's, bachelor's or master's thesis and are also very happy to receive your own ideas and suggestions for topics. You will then accompany the selected project from the theoretical elaboration to the practical implementation.

Are you interested in an apprenticeship or a university degree at Behringer and would like to help shape the next 100 years of company history?

Together we will shape your future and look forward to receiving your application to:
