Use your time as a student to find the professional path that suits you best. Get practical experience and find out which professional fields you are really interested in – as an intern, working student, or while writing your dissertation. Many students who get to know Drees & Sommer during their studies decide to join us after graduating. And we’re proud of that. That’s why we continue to promote our students – with responsible roles, special programs, and the best colleagues you could wish for at your side.  

Internship at Drees & Sommer

Interns and student trainees are always welcome at Drees & Sommer. Whether you want to do a voluntary or mandatory internship, or to gather some practical experience while studying, we offer exciting projects in a variety of industries. For example, you could support the Project Management Team with the construction of a new library or shopping center, or assist our experts working on Green Building certification. Whatever you want to contribute, we offer you the opportunity to build on your knowledge by putting it into practice.

Duration of Internship

To ensure that you can cover as many topics as possible to an appropriate level of detail, we recommend that you plan plenty of time for your internship – we are quite happy for it to be longer than three months. An internship can be a great start to your career at Drees & Sommer!

 

Student mentoring

Regular training sessions are held to ensure that, in addition to undertaking their daily tasks in their team, students also get to know the current subprojects and the tools used in the company. The training program comprises various individual events. These are repeated in blocks and do not build on one another. This allows students to get started right at the beginning of their internship or student traineeship and still cover all of the content. The program is also supplemented by training sessions on special topics. These give the students insights into Drees & Sommer’s various fields of activity. At the end of the mentoring semester, students go on an excursion to experience a Drees & Sommer project.

“The fact that students get the opportunity to work on projects very early on demonstrates to them that ‘Making it happen’ is not just an empty phrase, but a principle that is really embraced.”
