​Picanol Group attaches a great deal of importance to forging durable relations with universities, higher education institutions, colleges offering a technical diploma and of course their respective students. Below you will find a list of some initiatives that could be interesting for you as a student or organization.

Internship and thesis

Within Picanol Group we regularly welcome students for an internship or thesis. This can often be a first experience in getting to know how a company works. We offer students the opportunity to develop their skills and to apply their theoretical knowledge in practice.

Every year we participate in various job fairs (at VTK Ghent, PIH, KaHo St-Lieven, KHBO, VHTI etc.) in order to initiate contacts with students and new graduates. We are keen to give students the chance to expand their knowledge within our organization.

From time to time you can find here an overview of the different job fairs where Picanol Group will be represented. Interested in our company and in job or internship opportunities? Come along and visit our stand. You are more than welcome!

Company visit

Inspired by our activities? Then why not come and visit our plant in Ypres?

We receive several student and school groups every month, coming to look at the production of our high-tech weaving machines, our foundry and mechanical engineering activities and the production of our weaving accessories. Take a tour with our qualified guides to explore our facilities, from the foundry to the demo room with weaving machines.

Contact us and hear about the possibilities.


In addition to offering internships and company visits and our presence at job fairs, we also sponsor various student organizations and events.
