Internship & Job Orientation

The Internship & Job Orientation Project CHE is an integral part of the Master of Science of Chemical Engineering programme. The Internship & Job Orientation Project CHE has to be scheduled in the second year of the master, has to cover at least 13 weeks (course code 201700175 -  20EC) and should be conducted preferably at a company but can also be conducted at a research institute or an foreign university.

The learning goal of the internship concerns experience to the future working field by performing a relevant assignment at an external organization. We believe a stay abroad is a valuable component of the study therefore we recommend an internship abroad.

Judgment whether the project foreseen is of sufficient quality has to be performed by an academic supervisor. During this assignment, gained knowledge and skills at the study programme can be applied in an actual working environment.

The Internship & Job Orientation Project CHE is coordinated by the internship coordinator. Orientation for the Internship & Job Orientation Project CHE has to start half a year prior to national internship and a year prior to international internship. This time is required for actual arrangements of the internship, such as getting an accommodation, visa and all formalities.

Start the application procedure through registration in Mobility Online.

Every year in an information session, the coordinator provides general information about the internship. Also, take care that you will be authorized to visit the Blackboard site Internships TNW (under organizations). At this site, you find information about experiences in the past, internship offers and all the necessary forms.

International students should also contact Rik Akse during the arrangement of the internship. (h.a.akse@utwente.nl)
