SAP started in 1972 as a team of five colleagues with a desire to do something new. Together, they changed enterprise software and reinvented how business was done. Today, as a market leader in enterprise application software, we remain true to our roots. That’s why we engineer solutions to fuel innovation, foster equality and spread opportunity for our employees and customers across borders and cultures.

SAP values the entrepreneurial spirit, fostering creativity and building lasting relationships with our employees. We know that a diverse and inclusive workforce keeps us competitive and provides opportunities for all. We believe that together we can transform industries, grow economics, lift up societies and sustain our environment. Because it’s the best-run businesses that make the world run better and improve people’s lives.



SAP Security Research identifies and solves research problems relating to software and operational security, and shares its insights with others, particularly product groups at SAP, to drive advances in security and privacy. The group stays at the forefront of security research by tracking trends in security, and by co-innovating through collaborative research with leading universities, partners, and SAP product groups.
SAP Security Research’s objective is to understand new basic principles in multiple security research areas. We analyze the business value for SAP, refine the method and adapt them for SAP. By building prototypes and blueprints for productization, we support the SAP development teams to consume the research results. 
We are a young and dynamic team of post-doctoral researchers and PhD students striving for new ways to protect enterprise systems. As such, we can support you during your internship on academic as well as hands-on architectural questions.



Customers take it for granted that SAP develops and operates trustworthy, secure products and services. To help it meet these expectations SAP founded the SAP Security Research group, which is looking for students to join its team to work on security topics. 

We continuously have new and challenging research topics we work on. Tasks for an internship range from design and implementations of prototypes of recent research results up to solving small research questions on your own under supervision of one of our experts in the field. In some cases, we also have bachelor and master thesis topics. Here it is important for us to provide you a topic which also fits the expectations of your university.
