Internships play a key role in your training. The best way to enter the job market is through gaining experience in the areas you’ve studied throughout your degree. There are two types of internships, curricular (included in your study plan) and extracurricular (which you can do on a voluntary basis).

In order to carry out a curricular internship at a company, you will need to have 50% of your credits approved and you must be enrolled in the subject before your internship starts. These internships are monitored by the company and the internship professor. Interim and final reports will be prepared and used for evaluation.

If you want to take your work experience to the next level before finishing your university education, you can pursue an extra-curricular internship. You are allowed to choose any area of study; however, we remind you that the internship is an educational addition to your studies. Therefore, the more knowledge you have acquired throughout your studies, the more you will benefit from the internship experience.
