Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Computer and Media Service


The computer and media service of the Humboldt university Berlin offers internships for apprentices and pupils at the PC hall

Changes concerning the allocation of internship positions of IHK-interns:

From 1.1.2012 onwards we will only advertise concrete projects for IHK interns. General internship applications won't be accepted anymore. Besides the general application documents the application for a project should contain an approach to the problem of the advertised project (max. one A4 page).

You can hand applications for the following projects (via e-mail or mail):

  • Implementation of a web interface (PHP, MySQL, JavaScript) that enables the transfer of Power Point files (PPT file) to a webserver or a database. There should be a secured access, authorised users have to authenticate via AD account. Additionally, for every PPT file meta information has to be saved in the form of XML files.

General tasks during the internship:

  • Answering questions concerning the structure and usage of the pc hall (e.g. "How can I print in the PC hall?" or "At which PC can I use the program XY?")
  • Answering questions concerning installed software on the PCs in the hall
  • Pay attention to users respecting the rules of the library
  • Refilling of printing supplies (paper, toner)

Advanced tasks during the internship:
Collaborate in a project - the extent is based  upon the duration of the internship. Topics can be the following:

  • How can I create a website (HTML, PHP, JavaScript)?
  • How can I put websites on the internet (installation of web server ...)?
  • Web 2.0 - what is that?
  • installation, administration of an alternative operating system (Linux, OS X)
  • Terminal server - How can I open my own internet café?

A concrete scheduling of the project will be discussed individually. 


  • basic IT skills
  • profound knowledge of text processing und of an internet browser
  • Understanding of organizational processes
  • Readiness to work in shifts within the scope of the Youth Protection Act as we have opening hours from 8 - 18 o'clock
