High school students

The Fraunhofer IWM enhances young talents and offers chances to junior scientists via exposing them to the institute’s knowledge about materials.



In the area of career guidance for high school students (BOGY and BORS) we offer interested students bi-annual week long internships in scientific fields.


To help contain the Corona pandemic and in the best interests of all concerned, for the time being we have decided not to offer any 2021 student internships.
We appreciate your understanding.
