Technical Student Programme

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 centre of scientific excellence, even better. If you’re an undergraduate in Applied Physics, Engineering or Computing and are looking for a practical training period or a place to complete your final project, you could spend 4 to 12 months at CERN during the course of your studies (Bachelor or Master’s). If your university requires or encourages you to acquire work experience through an internship, imagine doing this at CERN in Geneva. 

If you’re a motivated student looking for an opportunity to work in a unique environment at the cutting edge of technology, this is your chance to take part.

Our Technical Student programmes open twice a year in summer and autumn.
