CoSES microgrid lab is currently offering a variety of student internships/ praktikum/ forschungpraxis/ semesterarbeit for interested candidates with a background in electrical, mechanical engineering and MSE disciplines.

The work shall provide an unique opportunity to mix theoritical knowledge with practical hands-on expereince in the field of micro-grid laboratory installation, combined heat and power grid construction and other similar tasks integral to the smooth fucntioning of a test grid.

Prior exposure to electrical and mechanical workshop is preferable but not mandatory.
