International Student Internships

Fraunhofer CESE proudly mentors and trains interns from Reykjavik University in Iceland and the Universities of Kaiserslautern and Mannheim in Germany and is always looking to expand our intern network. Our interns represent several countries and cultures and are instrumental in completing our business objectives throughout the year. In turn, students receive an unbeatable experience working abroad, near our Nation’s capitol while immersing themselves in a new social and technological culture. After returning home from these 6-month programs, students are uniquely positioned to leverage their enhanced skills and global perspectives to further develop their careers.
