An industrial placement is undertaken as part of the electrotechnical undergraduate courses during the fifth semester. For students of the electrotechnical courses this is a possibility to broaden and deepen their knowledge and skills by engineering activities. Furthermore, they will be able to experience working conditions and methods in real life. We recommend German students to their placement abroad. Students from another country are to do their placement in Germany.
The Information brochure written in German language summarises all the important information on the work experience term and should therefore be read thoroughly. It informs on block courses, industrial placement and school internships – only for the Engineering Education programme. You can find all the necessary forms for internship registration and confirmation in the appendix of the document.
