QUESTIONS ...?

 

In this FAQ, we have collected some of the questions that we are most often asked.

If you cannot find what you are looking for, you are of course welcome to contact us and we will do our best to help you.

 

FINAL PROJECTS

Can I write my thesis/final project in cooperation with Systematic?

Yes. Systematic collaborates with students engaged in a wide range of educational courses. However, the opportunities are limited to students writing master thesis or final project with a scope corresponding 15 or more ECTS points.

When writing your thesis in collaboration with Systematic, you will need to sign a non-disclosure agreement that covers anything you get to know about Systematic during the process.

Is it only students with a technical focus who can work with Systematic when writing their thesis/final project?

No, although we mostly work with students with a technical focus and background. However, Systematic also collaborates with students from universities, business schools, architecture schools, etc.

What can Systematic offer me?

We provide you with project supervision while you are writing the paper.

Via your Systematic contact person, you will also have the chance to establish contacts with our in-house technical experts, domain experts and sometimes even Systematic customers.

If Systematic likes my project, will I be offered a job?

Maybe. Working with students on their final projects gives both parties the opportunity to get to know each other and see how well we work together.

Many students are offered jobs at Systematic on the basis of this. However, we cannot guarantee you a job.

What will Systematic use my project for?

Usually, we will use it as an up-and-running prototype to inspire our customers.

We never sell student projects to customers, and we never put the prototypes into operation.

Will I have the rights to my project when I have finished it?

Yes and no. When you work with Systematic on a final project, you retain the right to publish it. You are also free to take employment at any other company – also a competitor to Systematic.

However, Systematic reserves the right to carry on with the project without providing you with financial compensation.

Will I need a security clearance?

No, when you collaborate with Systematic on your project, you will not need to obtain security clearance.

How should I contact you if I have an idea for a project?

You should write an email to students@systematic.com. Your email must include a short CV, a print of your grades and a description of your project.

For the description you can consider the following:

What are you interested in developing/investigating?
Why are you interested in working with Systematic?
What is in it for Systematic if we collaborate with you?
When do you wish to begin and end your project?

 

INTERNS

Does Systematic hire interns?

Yes. Each semester, we take on several engineering students, computer science students and user experience interns. Furthermore, we regularly take on interns in our administrative departments, primarily in our Marketing & Communication or People & Culture department.

What types of tasks will I be carrying out as an intern?

We strive to ensure that our interns participate in the day-to-day work at Systematic on equal terms with other staff members. Consequently, you will be carrying out the same tasks as all other staff members with similar jobs – but of course we match our expectations regarding your capabilities and performance to your level of training and experience.

Will I be posted at one of Systematic’s offices abroad during my time as an intern?

No. A trip to one of our offices outside of Denmark may take place if it makes sense in relation to a concrete task, but it is not an established part of the internship.

What are the working hours?

In Systematic, the working hours follow the so-called flexible time rules. This means that normally all staff members are at work from 9:00 to 15:00, Friday 9:00 to 14:00. You manage the rest of your time yourself.

However, all employees in Systematic are part of a team, so it makes good sense to make sure you are at work when your colleagues are working as well.

Can I get a job as a student assistant when I finish my internship?

Maybe. If you excel in your internship period, we see a future potential in you and we often hire interns as student assistants.

Can I get a letter of reference when I have finished my internship?

No, you cannot expect a letter of reference from us, but we are always happy to write a letter confirming that you have worked here. You are welcome to use Systematic as a reference.

Does Systematic have a graduate programme?

Yes, we have a student programme which is tailored to receive you as a student and prime you for accomplishing your tasks well.

Will I need a security clearance?

Yes, as an intern you must obtain security clearance from the authorities.

How do I apply for an internship?

If you are responding to a specific internship position, please respond via the particular job add. If you would like to send an unsolicited application, you can apply by sending an e-mail.

What should my application contain?

Upload a short CV, your grade sheet and your application.

In your application, consider the following:

Why would you like to be an intern in Systematic?
In what areas would you like more experience?
What period of time should your internship cover?
What is your field of study, and how far are you in your studies?

 

STUDENT ASSISTANTS

Does Systematic hire student assistants?

Yes, and many of our student assistants started at Systematic as interns or by writing a project in cooperation with us. If we seek student assistants, the available positions will be posted on our job site.

Can I get a full time job when I finish as a student assistant?

Maybe. If you excel in your position as a student assistant, we see a future potential in you and we often hire our student assistants when they finish their studies.
