With Us, You Are Just Right

From classic internships to working student positions and direct entry: at FORVIA HELLA, students and graduates have a wide range of opportunities to get started and work on the future of mobility.

Your Entry Opportunities


Would you like to combine theory and practice during your studies? Then a 3- to 6-month internship at HELLA is just the right thing for you to gain practical experience outside the theory-heavy daily routine of your studies. From the very beginning, you will be integrated into our work structures, perform a variety of tasks within our international project teams and master exciting challenges.

Dual master's program

You have completed your bachelor's degree? FORVIA HELLA offers you the opportunity to choose a master’s degree course of your choice and to deepen your knowledge in practice. During the lecture-free periods after the 1st and 2nd master's semesters, you will be on site with us in practical phases, taking on independent projects and supporting the respective specialist department with your know-how. In the fourth semester, you will write your master’s thesis at our company on a practical or research-relevant topic. Of course, the dual study program is also possible with a duration of three semesters, in which case there is no practical phase.

During your dual study program, you will be supported by a mentor from the specialist department and a contact person from the HR department. This way, you can build up your first network during your studies and benefit from the experience of your colleagues. Seminars, guided tours and exchanges with other students complement your insight into the company. In addition, we also support you financially: You will receive a salary of 800 € per month for 24 months.

Look beyond the theoretical horizon and write your thesis together with us. With the professional support of our specialists, you can put your knowledge into practice and we both benefit: you from our knowledge, we from your theoretical knowledge, which you transfer into practice. No matter which course you have chosen, FORVIA HELLA is the right place for you. It is not mandatory to have already completed an internship with us. However, this can be an advantage: internships often prove to be a breeding ground for topics and ideas for theses that can be further developed together with the specialist departments.
