If you plan to apply for an internship at the Institute of Medical Device Technology, please check the following items before you start. It saves both yours and our time.

  • We only offer internships between three and six months.
  • We require you to have an average grade of 2,0 or better in the German system. Please provide the appropriate conversion table if you are coming from a non-German region.
  • At the moment, we are only able to provide two internships per year. The earlier you apply the better your chances will be.
  • We provide internships for students of mechanical, electrical, mechatronics or medical engineering with a strong focus on mechatronics.
  • You need to have passed at least four semesters and have “basic engineering knowledge”.
  • You need to have at least a proven B2 level of English or German.
  • We will provide an appropriate work place and University of Stuttgart’s International Office can give you further support.
  • You may be able to enrol as a "free mover" and benefit from the advantages of student status (low-priced student accommodation in a dorm, cheap local transport ticket, student canteen, etc.).

Your application must be one single pdf document and should include:

  • A one-page letter of motivation
  • CV
  • Academic transcript (and appropriate conversion, if required)
  • One letter of recommendation
  • Any additional information that describes you well

Please send your application to:
