Simply think out of the box

As a student trainee or with a student internship

As an internationally oriented company, ENERCON offers attractive prospects for students. Alongside work experience placements and final thesis projects, we can facilitate graduate trainee activities as well as pre- and post-graduate work experience in specific fields. In addition, we are partners of the "Niedersachsen-Technikum" and as part of this we give support to high school graduates in finding their professional direction.

Work experience placement and final thesis projects with prospects

ENERCON has been awarded the Fair Company seal. As a Fair Company, we undertake to ensure fair work experience conditions at work. This includes an appropriate remuneration for our work experience students, a clearly defined task, including a specific objective, and optimum and appropriate professional support throughout the whole of the work experience placement.

ENERCON offers especially interesting prospects to undergraduates, who are above all interested in a practical based final thesis in the R & D area. Research in particular generates a high level of theoretical questions. In the context of their final thesis but also during their work experience placement, our aim is to assign highly challenging but realistic tasks to our undergraduates, particularly in the form of their own individual projects. At the same time, we promote networking and close contact with other graduates as well as with young engineers who are at the beginning of their professional careers. We also facilitate direct entrance to a professional career for successful graduates.



Gain valuable practical experience with an internship at ENERCON. There are many exciting tasks open to you, in which you can put your acquired knowledge into practice!

In order to be able to involve you closely in our projects, a work experience placement should last at least 3 months. As a rule, the placement period is between 3 and 6 months.

You can apply to carry out your thesis studies at ENERCON! For prospective engineers (m/f), who are ideally studying for their Master's degree and can demonstrate good or very good course achievements, we offer the opportunity for writing a final thesis.

Potential fields of investigation
- Electrical Engineering (with a focus on: power electronics, energy, measurement, control, automation and communication technology)
- Computer science, industrial information technology and mechanical engineering with computer science
- Mechanical engineering (with a focus on: engineering design, simulation, structural analysis, acoustics, aerodynamics)
- Aerospace engineering
- Civil engineering / Construction and industrial engineering

The timetable can be designed flexibly to take account of the requirements of the university of applied sciences / university.

You will find all the currently posted topics for a thesis in our job portal. In addition, applications with an independent proposal are also possible. In your application, please describe briefly the topics you are interested in. You are welcome to apply directly for a specific topic with ENERCON. And of course, if required we can support you in determining a topic.  

Together with your curriculum vitae, we require a summary of your grades with the application. You should ideally submit your application with a lead time of at least 3 months before the start of the thesis.


As a requirement for admission, some universities and universities of applied science require a basic work experience placement before starting or until the main course. We can only offer basic work experience in the fields of electrical engineering and mechanical engineering. They are completed either in production or in the training department for the engineering courses of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and information technology.

As the work experience placements in the MINT subjects are very popular in the semester breaks, we recommend that you submit your application three months before the start of the work experience placement. A basic work experience placement at ENERCON can be concluded at the Aurich and Magdeburg locations. Due to the high demand, applications will only be considered after receipt of the application.

For a successful application, we need a personal cover letter, including the period during which you would like to complete the work experience placement, your curriculum vitae, your Abitur certificate and guidelines of the university of applied science/university.


As a Student Trainee at ENERCON you will support colleagues in the particular technical department in their daily activities. From data analysis through to subsequent data evaluation - everything is possible! Depending on previous knowledge, you will take over responsibility for your own sub-projects. And naturally, you will have the support of a specialist as a point of contact during the entire period. As a result, even during your studies, we can get to know you and you can get to know us as well as build up valuable initial practical experience.

A student trainee contract usually has a duration of approximately 6 months. During your activities as a student trainee, the main focus will continue to be on your studies. We therefore keep to the statutory working hours of a maximum of 20 hours per week. However, a maximum number of working hours of 40 hours is possible during non-term time.  

Previous professional experience is not essential but desirable for an application as an ENERCON Student Trainee. Your cover letter, curriculum vitae and matriculation certificate should be included with your application documents.


“Try it out and then study” is the motto of the Niedersachsen Technikum. The project is aimed at high school graduates, who are particularly interested in the MINT subjects, mathematics, information technology, natural sciences and technology. Immediately after completing school, you can try out the profession and study as an engineer as part of the six month programme.

The cooperation between ENERCON and the Emden/Leer University of Applied Sciences provides the participants of the Niedersachsen Technikum an insight into the work of engineers over six months. In addition, on one day each week during a semester, you will get to know the relevant course of study. Study achievements count towards a later course of study.
