The programme includes a 2-week internship during the summer holiday between the 2nd and 3rd semester which must be held in a Danish company. In 4th semester, you will do an internship in a company for 8 weeks.
In your internship you will get to test your newly acquired skills in a company and get insight into future work assignments and career opportunities. You will be able to connect your theoretical knowledge with practical experience, and at the same time strengthen your CV.
In the internship, you can test a specific field of work and then focus your programme in relation to your career plans. As part of your internship, you must write a project report which is based on a problem statement from the company. Here, you will have the opportunity to specialise within your specific interests.
The internship is a mandatory part of your programme, and it is your responsibility to find an internship company. To help, we have a wide range of tools and contacts available, e.g. via our career centre.
