Internships and final Theses

Network of industrial partners

At universities of applied sciences - such as the Esslingen University of Applied Sciences - the focus is not only on imparting theoretical knowledge but also on practical application.

In the fifth semester, students complete a practical study semester in industry at home or abroad. They apply their acquired knowledge directly in practice and deepen it. The final thesis is also mainly written in industry.

For this purpose, the Department of Information Technology maintains a sustainable network of industrial partners from the region and around the world, who advertise internships and dissertations for students.

All professors of the Department of Information Technology have a large number of contacts at home and abroad.

Contact persons for final theses are all Professors
Internship Coordinator Prof. Dr.-Ing. Kai Warendorf.

it Small and mid-sized Enterprises Recruiting Event

Recruiting Event

As a rule, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are less well-known among students than large, well-known companies. Small and medium-sized enterprises also very often offer interesting and varied jobs for career starters after graduation and offer good career opportunities.

At the it-Mittelstandstag, companies have the opportunity to present themselves with a trade fair stand, to provide information about their company portfolio and to offer students internships, dissertations and career entry opportunities.

The trade fair will be accompanied by company presentations on current IT topics.

The it-Mittelstandstag takes place annually in November and is organized by the Wirtschaftsförderung Region Stuttgart GmbH in cooperation with the Softwarezentrum Böblingen-Sindelfingen e.V. and the Faculty of Information Technology of the Hochschule Esslingen.

The next it-Mittelstandstag will take place on Wednesday, November 27, 2019.
