TEMPORARY SOLUTION FOR STUDENTS WHO ARE DISADVANTAGED BY THE CORONA CRISIS

If you can prove that you cannot start your internship or have to interrupt your internship, please contact the Internship Office.

The following can be promised:

  • ≥ 50 % of the work done → 100 % crediting
  • < 50 % of the work done → New opportunities to complete the missing time:

    • An attempt is made to recognise meaningful activities from the curriculum vitae as a substitute for the internship, even if these do not formally fully meet the requirements of the internship regulations.
    • A digital substitute activity can be carried out at the institutes and has to be coordinated with the internship office. This may involve, for example, literature research of industrial processes, benchmarks of competing manufacturing processes in industry, etc.

  • Missing signatures, certificates of absence etc. can be waived. It is only important that what the student presents is credible. There should not be recognition only on a verbally basis.

JOINT INTERNSHIP REGULATIONS

The following internship regulations apply to the study programmes:

  • Biomedical Engineering
  • Electrical engineering and information technology

  • Production and logistics
  • Technical computer science
  • Industrial Engineering

Except in the Nanotechnology course and in the Masters courses: Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Power Engineering and Industrial Engineering and Management, an 8-week pre-study internship is required in all listed courses. Information on the type of companies and the pre-study internship areas can be found in the following internship regulations. All forms are also available at the Internship Office.

NOTES ON THE SUBMISSION OF THE INTERNSHIP DOCUMENTS

  • Fill in the application for recognition of your internship.
  • Enclose a copy of your internship certificate with a statement on days of absence (vacation, illness, bridge and retreat days), even if none have accrued. Public holidays do not count as days off. Absence days must be reworked. You only have to show the original of the certificate when you hand it in.
  • Write a work placement report of one and a half to two pages per week of work placement to be recognised, which is stamped and signed by the company supervisor on each page (pre-study placement) or on the first or last page (specialist placement). For the pre-internship please use the download below. In the specialized internship you write a coherent report about the whole period, no weekly reports.
