TESAT

Over the past five decades, TESAT, an independent subsidiary of the Airbus Group, has developed extensive know-how in the production of payload equipment for communications satellites and established itself as the clear market leader in Europe. On the 60,000 m² site, centrally located in Backnang, about 1,100 employees develop, build, integrate and test systems and equipment for telecommunications via satellite.

Our products must operate flawlessly in a height of hundreds of thousands of miles over the Earth over many years, and under the difficult conditions of space.

These are e.g. extreme temperature fluctuations, strong radiation loads, solar storms or even the mechanical adversities at the rocket launch. This makes it pretty clear that the demand for research, development and, in particular, production is far higher than for "terrestrial" products, simply because of the external circumstances.

Our product portfolio includes highly reliable devices such as traveling wave tube amplifiers, multiplexers, switches and modulators, which, as well as complete systems, are supplied worldwide to all leading satellite manufacturers. We are convinced that in the future global communication can only be realized with the inclusion of space. That is why we are the first company in the world to develop and deliver equipment for optical broadband communication in space - our Laser Communication Terminals.

Thus, our core competences lie in the high-frequency and telecommunications engineering, in the signal processing, in optical communication solutions and in the procurement of so-called EEE Parts.

In the text - for reasons of readability and without any intention to discriminate - only the male form is used. This includes all genders.

A purely theoretical education at an university is not enough for you and you want to get a taste of 'working life'? We offer several opportunities for students to gain valuable practical experience - in any case, the acquisition of new skills and knowledge has priority and is supported and promoted by experienced colleagues. On top, there are very good chances that something more develops from your practice phase! We offer internships and topics for theses mainly for the following courses:
  • Electrical Engineering
  • High-Frequency Engineering
  • Aerospace Engineerng
  • Engineering
  • Mathematics
  • Electrical Communication Engineering
  • Physics
  • Constrol Systems Engineeringli>
  • Economic Sciences
  • As an intern, you become part of our team and learn from experienced specialists. We will respond to your expectations and discuss in advance together in which direction you would like to orientate your internship. We see internships not as a substitute for full-time jobs, but as your chance for your career orientation. In addition to the support of experienced colleagues you can expect a fair compensation and a 35-hour week with flexible working hours. We offer our internships for enrolled students - whether within a voluntary internship or as part of your pre- or compulsory internship. We are also flexible regarding the start time and duration of the internship.
  • Are you almost at the end of your studies and would like to write your thesis as practical as possible and about current and innovative topics at TESAT? Then apply proactively or on one or more of our many topics. Diploma, bachelor and master theses are possible. In addition to a fair compensation and flexible start times, we offer time sovereignty during the preparation of your thesis. It's up to you to decide whether to write your work at home or in the library or be supported locally by our experts.

Studying at Tesat

  • Mateusz Loch

    Wie auch mein Studium voller zu entschlüsselnder Geheimnisse steckt ist auch TESAT eine Firma voller abwechslungsreicher Aufgaben und Projekte. Von der Programmierung mit Java über das Erstellen von Prototypen mit Matlab bin ich z.B. auch für Simulationen zuständig. Dabei deckt Tesat alle Bereiche der Elektrotechnik ab, sodass man hier auch noch nach vielen Jahren etwas Neues entdecken könnte.

  • Hannah Radke

    Als Praktikantin in der Personalabteilung habe ich die Organisation des monatlichen Praktikantenstammtisches in die Hand genommen und konnte so besonders schnell Kontakt mit meinen Mitpraktikanten der verschiedensten Fachbereiche knüpfen. Hier hat mir besonders der lockere Austausch gefallen -der Abend endete oftmals mit dem ein oder anderen Duell beim Tischkicker oder beim Dart. Durch das gemeinsame Führen von Vorstellungsgesprächen mit den Fachabteilungen habe ich auch sehr schnell Einblick in die fachlichen Themen bekommen.

  • Robert Stöcker

    Nach einem Bewerbungsgespräch auf Augenhöhe und aufgrund der vorgestellten spannenden Aufgaben habe ich mich für ein Pflichtpraktikum bei TESAT entschieden. Das habe ich nicht bereut, im Gegenteil: Aufgrund des guten Verhältnisses zu meinen Kollegen und der Möglichkeit selbstständig arbeiten zu können, habe ich mich kurzfristig entschieden, auch meine Bachelorarbeit bei TESAT zu schreiben. Der Rückhalt und bei Fragen stets einen Ansprechpartner zu haben geben mir dafür ein sicheres Gefühl. Wenn man bei der Arbeit Interesse und Freude zeigt, wird man bei TESAT sehr gut eingebunden und kann viel erleben!
