UT-VU Internship

In the third year of the bachelor program UT-VU Mechanical Engineering, students can choose an internship and/or a graduation assignment in cooperation with a company. A valuable opportunity to experience a particular field in professional practice and to build professional connections.

Bachelor internship - Design / Engineering 

In a two months' UT-VU internship as part of the minor, students work on a design-oriented assignment in professional practice, in relation to themes of the first and second year of the bachelor education program. Areas are Manufacturing, Energy Transition & Sustainability, Maintenance, and Technology for Healthcare.

The main objective of the internship is to put acquired knowledge and skills into practice and learn in a real engineering environment. Tasks in the design-oriented assignment can vary, ranging from assisting staff with design and engineering projects, offering suggestions on existing methods, conducting research as part of the design-oriented assignment, managing data. The student works under the guidance of a company supervisor, and completes the assignment with a presentation at the company and a report which will be assessed by the company supervisor and the UT-VU supervisor. 

The assignment has a defined beginning and end, and clearly described learning goals related to the professional goals of the academic course. Our teachers are involved in defining the internship assignment in contact with your company. The skills/knowledge the student learns during the internship is transferable to other employment settings.
