Apply for a Company Internship
An internship is an excellent way to apply theoretical knowledge acquired during one’s studies for practical skills needed for your professional future.
Leading-edge companies offer internships to highly-motivated Montanuniversität students to get in touch with high-potentials. For students, internships provide an opportunity to improve their skills and practical experience. At the same time, companies can take advantage of talented students who in turn might get an offer to join the company after graduation.
Since students should look and apply for an internship by themselves, the overview listed below represents those companies that commonly provide open internship positions to Petroleum Engineering students at DPE.
