Applications are required at CERN for CERN Technical Student Programme 2019, The CERN Studentship Programme 2019 is designed for students for working in an international environment and having a great quality of life. The program is Fully Funded by CERN for students to polish their skills and explore Geneva, Switzerland.

About CERN:

CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. Using the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments, they study the basic constituents of matter fundamental particles that are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives physicists clues about how particles interact and provide insights into the fundamental laws of nature.

About CERN Technical Student Programme 2019

One of CERN’s key missions is education. Our professionals very much enjoy sharing their knowledge and expertise with students who are committed and passionate about their chosen field. There’s no better way to learn than on-the-job. When that job happens to be in a world-famous organization and center of scientific excellence, even better. If your university or institute requires or encourages you to acquire work experience through an internship, imagine doing this at CERN in Geneva. It’s more than work experience. In fact, it’s a student programme like nowhere else on Earth and impressive addition to your CV.
