  • Your internship request is stipulated on the basis of the relevant examination or study regulations of a university (so-called compulsory internship).
  • You take part in an advancement procedure according to the BALM or in a further training measure of the transport department and
  • are very interested in active participation in the areas of the BALM.


Of course, you should have “learned a lot” after your internship ;-) At best, you have applied and deepened the knowledge you learned during your university studies/advanced training in practice.
But most importantly: You took the opportunity to gain experience and insight into our everyday work!
Get to know the BALM as a potential employer!
