The University of Tübingen has a number of contact persons for business partners; they can help with questions regarding joint projects, technology transfer, or recruiting. At the end of each semester, many highly-qualified graduates complete their studies at the University of Tübingen and aim to launch a career in the private sector. Many researchers are looking for ways to translate the results of their work into products or services.
The Business Contacts section of the Career Service brings together students and graduates together with potential employers at trade fairs, in online forums, and via the University’s own placement site, the Praxis Portal.
Praxisportal – the University’s central website for students and doctoral researchers seeking internships and jobs. It provides many opportunities for finding practical experience and subjects for a thesis. Businesses can register here and advertise for interns and other staff.
