How to apply for university students

Interns, student trainees and thesis writers

COVID-19: For more information on the changes in the application process, please have a look at "4. Telephone interview and/or face-to-face interview".

2. Application materials

No matter which position you are applying for, you always need a résumé. If you are applying for a position in Austria or Germany, you will also need to submit an enrolment certificate and transcripts. In addition, in a cover letter you can tell us about your qualifications, your motivation for applying for the position, and how you fit with our company.

3. Response

Directly after submitting your application you will get an email confirming receipt. In any case, we will try to give you personal feedback as soon as possible. Plus, we’ll keep you up to date during the entire process.

4. Telephone interview and/or face-to-face interview

Telephone interview via Webex

In the case of a positive response, you will first take part in a telephone interview via webex with someone from the department you have applied to. The goal of the telephone interview is to find out more about your résumé and to give you and the interviewer the chance to address any open questions.

Face-to-face interview

After the telephone interview – and sometimes instead of a telephone interview – is a face-to-face interview with someone from the department you have applied to. The meeting is intended to give the department a personal impression of the applicant. The information and personal impressions gathered in the interview are generally enough for both parties to make a decision.

Safety and health protection are our priority. Depending on the current situation and regulations, the personal interviews will be replaced by video interviews. You will receive detailed information on the process when you receive your invitation to the interview.

5. Contract

When the steps up to now have progressed to everyone’s satisfaction, you will be offered a contract and you can soon start your career at Infineon.



Interns, student trainees, and thesis writers at Infineon are paid. The amount depends on many factors, such as the location, the hours, and the type of internship. In certain conditions, a housing allowance may also be granted.

6. Onboarding

We support you with information and events. From the very first day, a buddy will be at your side to offer you help and advice. We do everything we can to make you feel comfortable.
