UPM for students

As the frontrunner of the new forest industry, UPM leads the integration of bio and forest industries into a new, sustainable and innovation-driven future. To maintain this position in future, we are always interested in the new ideas of students and recent graduates, as well as up-and-coming professionals.

​​​For students: from internships to the top positions

We recommend that students and recent graduates take a look at our summer job and internship positions. Student internships are a great way of getting to know us before applying for a more permanent position.

We offer students working for us as trainees a fascinating and challenging field of work, where you can utilise the skills you have acquired during your studies, find new ways to put them into use and develop new competencies in line with your interests.

We are always on the lookout for new ideas and opportunities to develop our business. Thesis work provides an important source of new ideas; every year we support approximately 50 students in their thesis work. If no suitable thesis work position is available right now, please suggest a subject matter to us. We are open to suggestions and future opportunities.

Join our team and become a pioneer of the bio and forest industry of the future!​
