Summer Student Programme

Imagine getting involved in work that’s 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.

How do you plan to spend your summer? How does getting involved in some of the world’s biggest experiments sound? This is more than summer work. It’s the chance to join CERN in Geneva – getting involved in the day-to-day work of our multicultural teams. Attend lectures, visit CERN facilities, take part in discussions and workshops with people who are leaders in their fields. In fact, it will be a summer like nowhere else on Earth.

Imagine having one of your first work experiences at CERN, an environment that will have a major impact on your future career!

CERN and our professionals very much enjoy sharing their knowledge and expertise with recent graduates, from university or higher technical institutes, seeking a summer internship in a wide area of projects and who are committed and passionate about their chosen field.

We welcome applications from talented undergraduates who have completed at least three years of full-time studies at university who will have the opportunity to work in a diversity of fields such as: civil engineering; controls and data acquisition; electricity; electromechanics; electronics; health, safety & environment; information technologies; materials science & surface engineering; mechanics; physics.

These are but a few examples of the many domains in which successful applicants will learn and contribute their knowledge.
