IT Fellowship Program
What's the role?
The Hilti IT Fellowship program was developed jointly by the Hilti Corporation and the University of Liechtenstein. It is a combination of practical training at Hilti and academic learning at the University of Liechtenstein, designed to enrich your education and boost your professional career.
Who is Hilti?
If you’re new to the industry, you might not have heard of us. We provide leading-edge tools, technologies, software and services for the global construction sector. We have a proud heritage, built over 75 years, and a worldwide reputation for pioneering products and exceptional service.
With 30,000 people in more than 120 countries, which we’re looking to expand, we’re a great place for you to show us your worth, step up to new challenges and grow your career..
What does the role involve?
The Hilti fellowship contributes to your Master’s education in Information Systems or related fields as you attend relevant courses at the University of Liechtenstein. In parallel to your part-time studies, you will join an international project team in Hilti’s Global IT department and work on cutting-edge IT topics in the construction industry. Our fellows are exposed to the unique corporate culture of Hilti and enjoy a lifetime opportunity to work side by side with distinguished experts in the field and to contribute to Hilti’s digital ambitions.
What do we offer?
We provide you with the means to excel in your internship, including one-to-one coaching. You will enjoy a rare combination of autonomy and friendly spirit will manage your own project while being part of a supportive team.
You will not just be another pair of hands but a fully integrated team member with lots of self-responsibility. We will trust you to do whatever it takes to deliver outstanding results. Go the extra mile and we will reward you with strategic development advice and career opportunities.
We will assist you even before you start with us through relocation and integration support. With the international intern community at Hilti you’ll never be bored. Further, the snow-draped mountains, crystal clear lakes and marvelous landscapes in the Alpine Rhine Valley are an excellent place for diverse outdoor activities.
Why should you apply?
We have an excellent mix of people, which makes for a vibrant, innovative, and extremely productive team. If you have no prior knowledge of construction, this is fine with us. We will always welcome your ability, commitment, and your drive to succeed.
