From Theory into Practice

You have ideas, but maybe you are not sure how to transform them into your future? You have come to the right place. At LightTrans, you can seize the opportunity to gain insight into working life while you are still studying. Whether via an internship or a working student program, we offer many opportunities for students.


Your internship is a crucial part of your career. Whatever your curriculum prescribes, all types of internship are possible with us. During your internship, you will be able to get an impression of your potential dream job by working closely with our professional team and gathering practical and degree-related experience.

You can complete your basic or compulsory internship with us and learn how to translate the theoretical knowledge from your studies into practice. In day to day business or projects, you familiarize yourself first-hand with professional practice and gain valuable insight into your future professional field. The duration of your internship can range from three to six months, depending on the type and requirements. Your internship can, in any case, be flexibly adapted to your needs.

Take advantage of an internship with us to gain professional experience, brush up your language skills, and empower your team-work and social skills.

Working Student

Why wait to get practical experience?

As a working student, you can work on fascinating topics, get involved in a project and see it through over many decisive phases. This is how you get to know your potential future tasks on the job and, if you want to join us at a later point in time, we will certainly remember you!

It is important to be an enrolled student and actively studying, because active student status is our prerequisite. Please bear in mind it is only possible to be employed as a working student if you can prove that you still have examinations to write. We are aware that your studies are the most important aspect for you. For this reason, you will work a maximum of 20 hours per week during lecture time, while during your lecture free time this amount can increase up to 40 hours a week.

Positions are normally advertised on our career page. Furthermore, you can apply to become a working student at any time.
