Internship and Master thesis
All the master's programs include a master thesis and an internship.
Different types of internships are organized.
- The observation internship lasts for 20 working days. It is primarily meant to provide students with a first professional experience. The student is usually integrated in a team and associated to a project. Thereby, he/she learns how projects are typically carried out in industry.
- The technical internship (40 working days) asks for a more substantial work from the trainee. He/she must demonstrate his/her ability to apply the knowledge and skills acquired during his/her studies and bring a significant contribution to a company project approved by an academic promotor.
- The long term internship typically lasts for 80 days during which the trainee is completely immersed in a company or in a (private or academic) research laboratory and carries out an independent work as part of his/her master thesis.
