Opportunities for students
We would like to get to know you
We are happy if we can get to know you while you are still studying – perhaps as intern, working student or while you are writing your thesis.
Students work closely together with other students, graduates and experts from diverse areas. This way you can complement each other, also qualify and make progress by rising to new challenges.
Gain practical experience while you study
Depending on where you are in your studies, there are different opportunities to start at Olympus Surgical Technologies Europe. While you are studying, you can participate as intern or working student. Or you can finish your studies by doing your thesis work with us.
We offer three- to six-month internships that give students valuable insight into the work processes and structures of a globally active company. You will work in a team with experienced colleagues on selected projects and will assume responsibility early. This way you can find out where your strengths are and where you see yourself working in the future. At the same time, this will give us the opportunity to get to know you. You can submit your speculative application for an internship anytime. In addition, we also post internship job vacancies, depending on our needs.
Working student positions activities
Take advantage of the opportunity to gain specialized work experience, start networking and share ideas with experienced colleagues plus other students. For about 15 to 20 hours per week and for at least six months, you can work in our teams and assume your own tasks in projects. We appreciate your interest in our job vacancies but are also happy to receive your speculative application anytime.
Degree theses (Thesis work)
If you want to finish your studies working on a practical thesis, you are at the right place with us. Send us your speculative application and get our attention with your ideas. In personal discussions we will help you develop thesis contents and structures and will provide support for you over a period of three to six months as you write your thesis. After the thesis work has been completed successfully, of course there is also an opportunity for direct entry as graduate.
As working student, I was quickly given demanding tasks that made the job particularly interesting.

Curiosity and know-how
Even more important for us than your field of study is that you fit, and that you have the desire to enhance our company with your knowledge.
In addition to solid know-how in your field of study, what counts for us is that you have an interest in technology and that you can think in a structured plus analytic way. If you are also dynamic, ambitious and getting excited about new things, then you are exactly at the right place here with us.
Feel free to send us your application – with cover letter, CV including current grades and references. Then in your interview you will have the opportunity to meet the contact persons of your future department before a final interview with Human Resources.
Fields we are looking for include:
- Medical technology
- Electrical engineering and information technology
- Mechanical engineering
