The programme is an employment oriented training programme which addresses qualified and motivated young post graduate students from the disciplines of engineering sciences from Indian Universities, who are about to begin a professional career and wish to enhance their skills and prepare themselves for a career in Germany. The aim of the traineeship programme is to provide trainees with an understanding of German work culture along with an opportunity to enhance their German language skills, acquire practical knowledge and professional experience.

They, along with 8 other students from India, will undertake a four-month language and intercultural preparation course, of which three months will be spent in New Delhi, India and one month in Germany. After completing the language course, they will be ready for placement as trainees with companies in Germany. At the completion of four months of successful traineeship with a German Enterprise, they will be eligible for permanent employment in Germany according to the provisions of the EU Blue Card.

We wish them all the very best!
