CU Trainee

Young, committed engineers who are well trained are in great demand in the industry. In order to meet the high demand, Composites United e. V. offers a student support program.

The CU Trainee Program is aimed at students who want to take advantage of the opportunity to receive additional technical training in the field of fiber composites alongside their studies.

The study-accompanying program is divided into two semesters: The first semester is devoted to learning theoretical fundamentals, which are then applied in the second semester as part of a final thesis.

In this way, CU offers trainees the opportunity to come into contact with established professionals from member companies and institutes. In addition, students gain an overview of what is currently happening in research and industry.

The aim of the trainee program is also to give member companies the opportunity to come into contact with committed young people at an early stage and in this way to recruit competent young talent for the future.

You can find the call for applications for the next trainee program here. Please note that the trainee program is only offered in German.
