Internships provide the great opportunity to gain on-the-job experience while studying at a university. Both, the intern and the company benefit: the students can apply their theoretical knowledge and gain practical working experience. The company, on the other hand, establishes contact with new talents at an early stage. At X-FAB, you can do an internship at each of our six manufacturing sites.

"Advancing future technologies and my career."

Oliver, Development Engineer (Process Control Monitoring), X-FAB Erfurt

Oliver started his professional career at X-FAB in Erfurt, Germany, right after graduating from university. For him, the job at X-FAB was the perfect fit after obtaining his degree in technical physics. 
As a development engineer, he works mostly on his own and independently, but appreciates the interaction with customers and colleagues.

Oliver is responsible for testing the wafer at the end of the manufacturing process before it is delivered to the customer. His tasks include designing the test layouts, programming the equipment in the clean room, performing electrical tests and, finally, evaluating the test results with the customer.

Those results ultimately have an impact on whether production of a specific device can be continued. 

"I am involved in the overall process of making the product. Having this insight makes me really proud. I am an interface both internally and externally. Internally, I deal with different departments: from process development to product management to quality assurance. Externally, I am in direct contact with the individual customers."

It is fantastic that I can contribute to making our customers’ products better with my work.

When are you satisfied at the end of a working day?

It makes me happy, when my measurements make sense, uncover problems and help others.
