Course Contents
The Internship is a non obligatory but highly recommended part of the EEMCS(EE/ES/CE) curriculum.
Study Goals
There are three types of educational goals for the Internship:

I. Profession related aspects
Insight into the profession of the electrical engineer
Insight into the duties and the responsibility of the engineer in a company

II. Social-psychological aspects
Learning to move in another culture (both within and outside the company)
Dealing with another language during a longer period
Gaining insight into the position of the company with respect to comparable companies

III. Professional knowledge and skills related aspects
Learning to apply the gained knowledge and skills in a situation different from the (own) university situation
Learning to acquire new knowledge and skills that are necessary to meet the requirements for the Internship.
Education Method
The internship must be done in a company in or outside The Netherlands. An internship in a university outside the Netherlands can be accepted. An internship at TUDelft will not be accepted.

On this site also positions for Internships can be found.
A general guideline for the start of the Internship is: the studies are finished apart from the MSc-project and maybe one or two courses.
When this condition is met the Internship Officer is able to declare that the outgoing student will practically work on the level of an engineer.
Hence, the company may expect something and the student can gain further experience at a rather high level.
The assessment is based on the Company Assessment Form, the Evaluation Report and, if applicable, the Companies Internship Report.
The first 2 documents have to be submitted to the Internship Officer within one month after finishing the Internship.
Within one month after submitting the different documents, the student will be informed about the credit points that are granted.

The Internship is minimally 8 weeks and maximally 13 weeks. The number of credit points (studiepunten) is equal to the number of realised working weeks (x 1,5).

Min. 10 - max. 15 EC.

The Internhip may well take longer than 13 weeks: in that case the number of credit points will still be limited to 15.

The Internship acceptance form has to be submitted as soon as the company has agreed with the Internship, at any rate before the start of training period.
Doing a Summer Internship, hand in before June 1st.
Internships not reported before the start will not be qualified for credits.
