Internship / Industrial training

The Internship or Industrial training is a compulsory part of the Master’s program Nanotechnology, course code 19340950. The experience in this period is a great help in orientation on the career with an academic Master’s diploma. For Dutch students an industrial training will take place in industry in the Netherlands or abroad or at another university outside the Netherlands. For international students there is a choice to do either internship/industrial training or a research project in any of the research groups at the University of Twente.

The minimal duration of the training period is 10 weeks and the upper limit is 20 weeks. If you spend more time than 10 weeks for your internship, your MSc-project will become shorter. The minimal duration of the MSc-project should be 6 months. The credits to be earned for the internship are 15 EC (minimum) to 30 EC (maximum).

UT students who will do their internship starting from 1 October 2016 have to register via the registration system Mobility Online.

Application for the internship with a start before 1 October 2016 has to be submitted to the Student Mobility System

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.

From one year to at least 3 months prior to start orientation by submitting your application form.
