What can I expect from an internship at Dräger?

You will assist your department in its everyday operations and also work on exciting (international) projects in cooperation with experts. This will give you an opportunity to put forward your own ideas and display your strengths.
Your feedback is very important to us. Your supervisor will hold a meeting at the half-way point of your internship as well as a feedback meeting at the end of the internship.
