Student Opportunities in Romania
Launched in 2018, our three-month program is designed to help students grow and expand their skills. Our internship is split into two six-week phases. First, the training phase takes interns through the basics of C/C++ & Linux Basics. The second phase is the mentoring phase, during which mentor and interns partner together to work on HARMAN projects. Students are evaluated during each stage, and at the end of the internship there is a possibility of HARMAN extending a job offer.
Automotive Bootcamp consists of 12 students per program. Participants must:
- - Have a bachelor’s/master’s degree in Computer Science
- - Possess C++ programming skills
- - Be fluent in both written and spoken English
There are a lot of advantages to joining the HARMAN Automotive Bootcamp program. First, all participants will gain invaluable C/C++, Python, Pearl, and Linux programming skills. While working on current projects with mentors, participants will also get to see the latest and most innovative technologies HARMAN is creating. Overall, this experience is filled with opportunities to learn and grow within the connected car field.
Past participants have had a lot to say about the program:
“I found the Bootcamp program as being well balanced between technical theoretical trainings and hands on activities. Truly I would recommend this program to all the students who want to pursue a career in the IT and Automotive field. You get to experience an accelerated learning path, discover the newest technologies in the automotive domain and work together with the best experts on the market.”
“The HARMAN Bootcamp was a great experience for somebody who was just getting involved in the work field, like myself. I was surprised to see that the lessons were taught by some of the most important and respected colleagues here at HARMAN. One of the best parts of the program was the fact that only half of the curriculum was based on traditional courses – the other half was hands-on experience inside the working teams.”
