For students

In addition to the predominantly theoretical knowledge imparted by universities, Fraunhofer FHR introduces its students to applied research and also allows them to participate in innovative projects even during their studies. 

Whether you are a scientific assistant or are working on a student research project or thesis: Fraunhofer FHR offers students from different faculties the ideal environment to deal hands-on with issues relating to high frequency physics and radar techniques. You will receive competent support, also from scientists at FHR who hold lectureships at third-level colleges.

We offer a wide array of options

Student Assistants

Gain practical experience for your professional future and earn some extra money to finance your studies. We particularly value a long-term cooperation and offer you a wide range of diversified activities in our departments.


Depending on the terms of your internship and individual agreements, you will be involved in day-to-day business or work on your own projects thus gaining valuable practical experience.

Student research projects and theses

From theory to practice: At FHR, the knowledge you acquire in the course of your studies will be implemented in concrete research projects thus allowing you to take an important step in your scientific career.

Courses currently available at the university

We cooperate closely with renowned universities and are committed to the training of young scientists and researchers. For example, our Institute Director, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Joachim Ender, holds a professorship for High Frequency Sensors and Radar Techniques at the Center for Sensor Systems of the University of Siegen. Prof. Dr. Nils Pohl, who heads the Department for Millimeter Wave Radar and Ultrahigh Frequency Sensors at FHR, is a professor for Integrated High Frequency Circuits at the Ruhr University in Bochum and Prof. Dr. Jens Bongartz is the Head of Fraunhofer FHR Application Center for Multimodal and Airborne Sensing AMLS at the University of Koblenz.
