Internship report

Doing an internship means acquiring additional skills to your theoretical and methodological knowledge and taking a first step into the world of work. It is recommended, whatever your academic background, to do an internship in order to enhance your training.

Internship characteristics

The Faculty and the institutes regularly receive internship offers. These are sent by e-mail to the concerned students (second and third year of the Bachelor's programme, internship credits being validated within the elective module of the third year of the Bachelor's programme) and/or posted in the Faculty's window in the Main Building.

However, it is up to each student to approach potential employers. The placement must be in line with the theory acquired and the position offered by the company.

  • The internship can be done in 4 weeks full-time (40h / 42h per week) worth 6 ECTS, or in 8 weeks full-time (40h / 42h per week) worth 12 ECTS.
  • The internship which lasts 8 weeks can be divided in two internships of 4 weeks, however, they must be done in the same company.
