Responsibility in an internship

Hello, colleagues – Wintershall Dea’s corporate language is English.

Students can get to know non-technical fields, as well as exploration & production disciplines, at Wintershall Dea – from online communication or the HR department to reservoir simulation and core samples.

What is always the case: you shoulder responsibility from the outset in an international company and manage your own small projects – usually in English, our corporate language. #teamwintershalldea is always on hand to help you in that. The internship is paid.


If you are looking for a job alongside your studies, you can also apply for a working student position. Up to 20 hours per week (during the lecture period) you can get involved with us, gain practical experience and take on responsible tasks in daily business as well as in exciting projects. In return, we offer you a collective agreement with attractive remuneration and a wide range of benefits.

The place to write your thesis

We are eager to find out what plans you have in mind! Wintershall Dea gives motivated and talented students ideal research and working conditions for their diploma, Bachelor’s or Master’s thesis.
