From Internships to Ph.D. positions

Currently studying? Want to apply your knowledge to a real-life project? Whatever your level, DENSO could have an opportunity for you.



We offer internships of varying lengths to meet both your, and our, requirements. No two people are the same and no two projects are the same. We aim to match your skills and abilities with the opportunities we have available. Together, we will clarify the expectations and objectives from both sides and ensure that these are met.

As an intern you’ll be treated as one of the team from day one. As a result you’ll get “real” and valuable experience of working in a multinational company. Please note that English is the working language of DENSO Europe in all locations.


Working students

At some of our European locations we are able to offer opportunities for working students. Details of current positions can be found here.


Graduate programmes

Europe was the first DENSO region to establish a multi-national graduate recruitment and development programme. From 2006 this programme brought highly talented manufacturing engineers into our production companies, helping us to strengthen our European talent pool.



From this foundation we launched our product engineering graduate programme “IGNITE” in 2013. Click here to find out more about the programme. Click here to read about us welcoming the second group of IGNITE graduate engineers in Europe!


Master thesis

In some countries we offer the opportunity for final year students to develop their thesis in combination with hands-on experience at DENSO Europe. These opportunities normally last for around six months, depending on the thesis, and a competitive compensation package is offered based on individual circumstances. During this time you will receive the full support of DENSO Europe with access to the knowledge of your colleagues, our information sources and any technical facilities required.

Details of current Master thesis opportunities can be found here.


Ph.D. positions

We offer a small number of Ph.D. positions with an automotive engineering focus. Opportunities are frequently updated so please visit here often.
