Internship for students
Every year, KUKA offers internships for university applicants and students. This is your opportunity: you will gain insights into the current projects and learn about the practical aspects of the world of Industrie 4.0 – an optimum entry point for your career.
Pre-internship for university applicants: “Basic skills in metal”
In many courses, you need to have practical training or provide evidence of participation in an activity of this kind before you are allowed to start your course. You can achieve this in the form of a technical pre-internship at KUKA. Then you can submit the certificate to your university or college.
In addition to the certificate for your higher education, the pre-internship also provides you with insights that you cannot acquire from a book: you get to know innovative technologies in the area of automation, and you can embark on your course already equipped with practical knowledge.
Contents of the pre-internship
- You learn simple fundamentals of metalworking: marking-out, filing, sawing, drilling, reaming, countersinking, thread-cutting, working with various materials, machining sheet metal, shearing and bending.
- You complete riveting training.
- You practice mechanical metal cutting, for example using lathes and milling machines.
