Our internship companies include, e.g.:

  • AVL List GmbH
  • Magna Steyr Fahrzeugtechnik AG & Co KG
  • Magna Powertrain AG & Co KG
  • ECS Steyr
  • BRP Powertrain
  • KTM Sportmotorcycle GmbH

Sören Hage: My internship at AVL List

The internship I completed at AVL List GmbH as part of my Master’s degree allowed me to put into practice what I had learnt and so was one of the most exciting times of my university life for broadening my knowledge. I was involved in a wide variety of different project stages within the DSA department (System Development Engine Controls) over a four month period. This enabled me to play an active part specifically in topics connected with exhaust gas treatment using catalysts (SCR, for example).

The experience of working within an efficient team will also be helpful in my future professional life. In addition, the internship was excellent preparation for my Master’s thesis.
