The internship, or (research) traineeship, (15 EC, which means 11 weeks fulltime) offers you the opportunity to experience a real-life working environment, and get work and research experience in the field of your specialization.
The subject and place of the internship will be chosen in close cooperation with your mentor to assure it fits your specialization. The type and content of the internship will also depend on your background and ambitions. Generally speaking international students are offered an internship in the Netherlands, either at TU/e or at a company. Students who did their BSc at TU/e are stimulated to perform their internship abroad in a university, research institute or company. For former pre-Master students an academic research internship is mandatory, to be carried out at the TU/e or another university in the Netherlands or abroad.
