School internship

Through a school internship, the LZH offers interested pupils the opportunity to look at the working world at a laser research institute and gain initial practical experience in laser technology.


The LZH offers young people an entry into the professional world with apprenticeships for office management assistants. Over three years, the trainees are deployed in the various areas of the administration and communications departments and the occupational safety specialist. Depending on their interests, trainees can focus on specific topics in administration or communications as part of their training plan.
