Tech summer trainees can apply for housing & public transportation benefits in Turku region

Published 20.1.2020

Looking for a tech summer job?

Why not come to Finland’s summer capital Turku!

For several summers, the Turku region has arranged campaigns to attract Engineering master’s degree students by offering housing and public transport benefits. In 2020, the Tech Summer Trainee (Kesäteekkarikampanja) campaign goes international, as one-third of the places will be reserved for international degree students.

The campaign is primarily aimed at students of machine, production, maritime and construction technologies as well as students of architecture.

The goal is to support networking between local companies and international students, as a summer job is an excellent place both for the employee and the employer to get to know each other.

“We have arranged campaigns with the City of Turku for several summers to attract tech summer trainees by offering housing in a flat in the Turku Student Village and a public transport season card free of charge for three months. This year the campaign is primarily directed at students of machine, production, maritime and construction technologies as well as students of architecture in universities of technology outside Turku. The benefit will be given to 30 students, of which 10 are reserved for international degree students. The summer job also improves the opportunities of foreign experts to settle permanently in Finland and Turku after graduation”, says Lotta Kujanpää, Project Specialist responsible for the implementation of the campaign in Turku Science Park Ltd.

Tech Summer Trainees will also be recruited during a campus tour that will stop at the DuuniDay in the Lappeenranta-Lahti University of Technology on Tuesday, 28 January 2020, the Pesti Career Day in the University of Oulu on Thursday, 30 January 2020, and Yrityspäivät in the University of Tampere on Thursday, 6 February 2020.

  1. Find a tech company in Turku and apply for a summer job.
  2. If your application is successful, apply for the Tech Summer Trainee campaign for a chance to get housing and regional transport ticket.
  3. Experience a summer you will never forget!
