At CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. Using the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments, they study the basic constituents of matter – fundamental particles that are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives physicists clues about how particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature.
One of CERN’s key missions is education. CERN’s professionals very much enjoy sharing their knowledge and expertise with students who are committed and passionate about their chosen field.
Imagine getting involved in work that is changing the world and imagine doing it before you’ve left university.
Imagine working in an international environment and having a great quality of life.
Put all these ingredients together to make this imagination a reality.
There’s no better way to learn than on-the-job. When that job happens to be in a world-famous organisation and center of scientific excellence, even better.
Take part in CERN’s Technical Student Programme!
If your university or institute requires or encourages you to acquire work experience through an internship, imagine doing this at CERN in Geneva. It’s more than work experience. In fact, it’s a student program like nowhere else on Earth and impressive addition to your CV!
If you are a student looking to complete practical training in domains related to Mechanical Engineering, you will have the opportunity to work at the cutting edge of technology, contribute and broaden your knowledge in disciplines as varied as structural mechanics and machine development, magnets, fluids or heating systems, mechatronics, computer-aided design or metrology to name but a few.
In order to qualify for a place on the programme you will need to meet the following requirements:
- You are a national of a CERN Member or Associate Member State (home.cern/about/member-states);
- You have completed at least 18 months of your undergraduate studies (Bachelor or Master’s) at the time of the next student selection taking place in December 2019;
- You can stay for at least 4 and at most 12 months remaining registered as a full-time student;
- They advise you to opt for the longest period possible to make the most of it and increase your chances of being selected!
- You have a good knowledge of English OR French.
- A contract of association from 4 to 12 months;
- An allowance of EUR 3044.32 (3305 Swiss Francs) per month (net of tax);
- A travel allowance;
- Depending on your personal circumstances, a supplement if you are married and/or have children;
- Coverage by CERN’s comprehensive Health Insurance scheme (the contribution will be automatically deducted from your allowance).
- 2,5 days of paid leave per month.
