Internships and projects
Many companies and students find that an internship or a project related to a particular academic assignment generates considerable value for both parties.
Internships and project partnerships are temporary, project-oriented arrangements under which a student works on projects or assignments for a company or public-sector body. The student gains experience of the real world and you get:
A specific problem solved by an academic student
Recruitment opportunities among top students
Dedicated and well-trained manpower
Access to the latest knowledge, analyses and methods from the University
Guidelines for working together on projects and internships
When a student and a company enter into an agreement on an internship or on projects, it is important that the academic and professional challenges and the student match, so that both parties will benefit from the outcome.
Together, the student, the University and the company or public-sector authority draw up a contract to ensure that all parties agree on the process.
When and how do you find an intern?
The semester starts around 1 February and 1 September every year, so it is a good idea to start the internship/project around these dates. Therefore, you may want to start advertising for students in October/April. Use the self-service module to advertise for an intern in the University's Projectt & Job site.
