Several learning goals are addressed during the internship:

The key focus of the internship is learning, not work.

Canvas

The Canvas website EEMCS Internships contains an excel file with companies and institutes that have internships available. On top of that, you can find a large number of experience reports from students who have already completed their internship with one of these companies, and many more links and documents that could come in handy that cannot be found on this website.

Internship and graduation assignments that are available and sent to the internship coordinator by companies are published on this website as well.

Please feel free to enrol yourself by using this link.

Several systems are used during this whole process. If you have any troubles, look at these manuals for guidance.

COVID19

Since the corona outbreak a lot of students started their internships remotely. According to the EER however an internship needs to be carried out at a company, university or organization on site (outside the University of Twente).
For some programs, this might mean that in addition to the approval by your UT supervisor on the content of the assignment, you need to send a request to the exam board to be allowed to start your EEMCS internships (20 EC) remotely (partial as well as full duration).

Applied Mathematics
You can start your internship even it it is online. Though we expect you to participate as much as possible in company-related activities like meetings, seminars etc. You need to inform the internship coordinator in any case when starting the internship (partially) online at the start, at mobility-eemcs@utwente.nl.

Computer Science/Internet Science and Technology
If you intent to execute your internship on a remote basis, you need approval from the Examination Board. This only applies to internships which have yet to start.

Electrical Engineering / Embedded Systems / Systems and Control
You can start your internship, even if it is online. Though we expect you to participate as much as possible in company-related activities like meetings, seminars, etc.

Business Information Technology / Interaction Technology
You can start your internship, even if it is online as long as you are actively participating in the company and you are solving a company problem / research question with your assignment.
