    I am Mechatronic Systems Engineering student in Canada, I am very interested in doing a co-op with SMA. My question is are international students required to be fluent in German?
    I have also looked through the current job postings, unfortunately I cannot see the full requirements as the page does not translate to English.
    Any information you can give me will be greatly appreciated. I hope I can get a placement with SMA in the future.

    Thank you

        Hello Leonie,

        Thank you for your response.
        I will contact Anne Schuster as I have some questions regarding the available internships.

    I am an Electrical Engineer and I am about to finish my master’s degree in Florida. I would like to know what opportunities you have for international professionals seeking for long-term internships or jobs. Are the internships only for enrolled students or is there a similar international-oriented program? I would like to be part of the SMA community in Germany and learn more about PV technologies.

    Thank you!
