We are designing the future with students
Innovation needs space. It is also about having the courage to depart from familiar paths and break new ground. Our Innovation Garage is an ideal environment for innovation. Realise your creative concepts and innovative showcases with us - from idea to product.
Experience how the latest technologies are developed and help us to shape the future of connectivity.
Let's develop the future together
Are you interested in technology, enrolled at a university and interested in doing an internship or a mentored thesis in a modern, highly functional environment with state-of-the-art technology? Then come along to the Innovation Garage!
- Work with the very latest technologies, such as 5G, Narrowband-IoT, LTE broadcast, V2X and 3D modelling.
- Use state-of-the-art network equipment such as 5G routers, the GigaCube, networked and virtual servers.
- Work with devices such as boards, modules, wearables and 3D printers.
- Use the latest camera systems, including action cams, drones, virtual reality and 360° cameras.
- Develop websites, apps (iOS/Android) and applications.
Technology has no gender
But technical occupations still attract far more men than women. We hope to change that by encouraging talented women to join us and pursue a career in the tech industry. Female students can develop their potential by working on tech projects at the Innovation Garage. We believe that equality and diversity in the work environment are key innovation drivers.
Are you a tech fan looking for an exciting internship? Then apply for one at the Innovation Garage. We're looking forward to meeting you!

Do you like new technologies? Great - because Innovation Garage internships are technology oriented. That's why a high level of technological understanding is a requirement. We also prefer our interns to be undergraduates in telecommunications engineering, industrial engineering or IT.
You're welcome to apply for one of our non-technical internships if you have a different background. We also offer internships in areas such as marketing and strategy development.
