General and program specific rules

Although rules and procedures for the traineeship are quite alike for all programs, some differences occur. We therefore give first a number of rules, common for all master’s programmes and then we discuss some programme specific rules. This document has been fully revised, based on the revision of the Teaching and Examination Rules of the EEMCS master’s programmes valid from September 1st 2016.

Disclaimer

This document is an effort to give a comprehensive overview of the rules regarding the traineeship. However we cannot guarantee that everything is complete and correct. In case of doubt, please consult the Teaching and Examination Rules of your master’s programme. They are decisive.

Common rules

  • For all master’s programme in the EEMCS-faculty the study load of the traineeship is 20EC.
  • Before being allowed to start your traineeship you should have completed 45EC of your course programme.
  • A description of the traineeship, written by the company should be approved by a permanent scientific staff member of one of the chairs of the master’s programme.
  • The internship should be prepared in consultation with the Mobility Office of the faculty.

Programme specific rules

Differences between the programmes exist regarding the following topics:

  1. In some programmes the traineeship is compulsory, while in other programmes it is elective. In case it is elective, an alternative for a traineeship is following courses or carrying out a project in the university.
  2. In some programmes the core courses should have been completed before starting the traineeship.

Approval of your traineeship by the university supervisor

The assignment, you are going to carry out during the traineeship must be described in a document by the company. In this document it should be indicated who will supervise the assignment from the side of the company. Please copy & paste the text of this document into the assignment form that you can find at the Mobility Online system. This description will have to be approved by a university supervisor, who should sign a print of this form. This supervisor is one of the scientific staff members of the faculty, or possibly from one of the other faculties. Please deliver the signed assignment form to the Mobility Office.

Report

There are no specific rules for the report, which can be made in consultation with the company supervisor. Elsewhere on the site, general guidelines for the report are given.

We advise you to contact your UT-supervisor about preferences regarding the report before you start writing it.

The report should be delivered to the UT supervisor within two months after the end of the training period. Separately, an experience report should be delivered to the office. In this report the student describes his/her experience with the company and the environment. The intended audience consists of other students looking for a traineeship position.
