Internship for immigrant professionals

Since October 2016, the Bavarian water administration offers a qualification program for immigrant professionals, who are looking for asylum in Germany. Reason for the migration of refugees are not only the lack of security, but adverse living conditions, caused by population growth, over-exploitation of resources and the associated unfavourable environmental conditions, which are intensified by climate change.

By so-called career orientation internships, applicants with relevant specialist knowledge and interest in the field of water management/soil protection get an insight into the existing structures and applied standards.

Aim of the Internship

  • Transfer of knowledge in this special field
  • Guidance for future professional development
  • Qualification of potential multipliers who can draw on this experience when they return.
