The summer interns must be students of Aalto University (including international Master’s programme students) and they should be successful in their studies and have an interest in research work. Both Bachelor and Master students can apply. Please note, that there will be an additional call only for first-year BSc students in March.

The work done as a summer intern can often be included in studies as a special assignment or as work experience credits. Bachelor students are expected to write their Bachelor thesis during the summer.

  • your motivation for the application, and why you would be right for this position
  • research groups and technology areas in which you would like to work
  • preferred type of work: software development, laboratory measurements, simulations, mathematical modeling, data analysis, user studies etc.
  • possible interest in a Bachelor thesis project
  • optionally name your preferred supervisor from the research staff, and any topic that you have previously discussed
  1. Current study record (unofficial OODI transcript as pdf), and courses currently attended


Applications should be submitted to the Aalto University recruitment system:
