Suggest your own project topic!!

At Copenhagen Atomics we are eager to support the education of the next generation of nuclear engineers and scientists who will potentially enable the molten salt reactor industry grow to a size where we can supply 10% of global energy. This will require thousands of smart people globally. Feel free to suggest your own topic for an internship or a thesis. However, keep in mind that we are a business and we need to make money. With a limited number of spots for students, we prefer students and projects which result in the biggest win-win for both parties.

Who are you?

Curiosity is part of our culture and how we train every day as a team to become world champions of our mission. We are very curious of who you are and what purpose you have in life. What is your story and what are your dreams? As team players we depend on each other whether big or small projects and delivery. Hence, we make a huge effort to keep our promises and deadlines because it affects all of us. Our work pace can be intense at times due to our high ambitions, and errors can be expensive. However, if you like to be challenged Copenhagen Atomics might be the right place for you to write your thesis! For students who want to do an internship or write their thesis at Copenhagen Atomics we offer to pay up to €1000 per month to cover your housing cost in Copenhagen, if you are not from here. You must be at Copenhagen Atomics for a minimum of 8 weeks but we prefer student projects that last 3 - 6 months. Interns usually work ½ of their workweek on their project and the other ½ they help in production or labs to gain experience. You can apply at Please send your CV along with 10 - 20 lines about yourself and why you want to join our adventure.

About Copenhagen Atomics

Based in Copenhagen we’re an international growth team of 50+ engineers, technicians and designers who are in the process of developing nuclear power plants to be manufactured on assembly lines in the future. We expect many new colleagues to join our company within the next 5 years as we expand our breadth and capabilities even further.
