Explore the world – with the right job
No student wants to write their thesis only for it to end up gathering dust. That's why we recommend you write it at Deutsche Telekom. Wouldn't it be great if others could benefit from your knowledge?
You've got the academic knowledge, we have the practical business side - which makes students and Deutsche Telekom the ideal combination. Whether it's a diploma, bachelor's or master's thesis, many university students want to hand in a piece of work that offers real benefits; scientific research coupled with practical relevance.
This works particularly well, of course, when the student gets to work hand in hand with a company. It goes without saying that students are given extensive support during their studies from experts at the company. And it isn't only their university assignments that benefit. "You get to establish or build your network of contacts at the company, as well as an insight into the Group," says Patrick Heiermann, who is now working on his thesis after completing two internships with the company.
Internship as a launch pad
Sounds interesting. But how do I get started with my thesis at the company? The best way is to do an internship with the Group. This offers students the ideal opportunity to learn more about the company, its fields, and focus topics. "The intern and supervisor usually find that an interesting topic crops up in day-to-day or project work."
For example, Patrick Heiermann and his supervisor at Deutsche Telekom looked for a topic that would both be of interest to the business management student and advance the company. "It's really satisfying to know that your research is benefiting a massive corporation like Deutsche Telekom," says Patrick Heiermann. And that's not the only thing. The successful thesis might even be in line for a reward from the department.
