The 12-week internship is an integral part of the Textile Engineering program introduced in the new 2019 examination regulation in order to improve and further develop the program based on students' feedback. The goal of the internship is to improve students' ability to apply what they have learned in a practical context and thus prepare them for a career in textile engineering and related fields.
There are a few important points to note about your 12-week internship:
- Students themselves are ultimately responsible for finding an internship placement;
- Internships are always initiated on the basis of an official contract;
- Internships are always paid;
- Interns have to reach the agreed number of days worked and have to make up for sick-days;
- Interns must be insured (seek advice from your insurer);
- Internships at institutes of your home university or at family businesses are not recognized;
- Recognition and approval for the internship will be granted by the Examination Board;
- Students must hand in a written internship report (15-20 pages) and their proof of internship, 2 months after the end of their internship at the very latest.
