The number of credit points (ECTS) that student get after successful completion of internship is 8.

The main purpose is to give student practice in business environment together with shaping practical skills related to engineering practice. Positions in this activity are assigned responsibility for providing engineering expertise, guidance and technical assistance. Students should perform engineering tasks and by reviewing and evaluating the work of consultants, contractors and facility operators, under the supervision of a professional engineer.

The internship is intentionally linked with the master thesis and should be treated as a introduction to the master thesis performance. During the internship the support to students form the industrial partner is granted.

As a apart of learning by doing approach students are required to search individually for the place to have internship. Due to game changer profile of Energy Transition students it is advised to do the maximum effort to complete this task. However, If any of students would fail to do it , the assistance form the home university staff will be granted.

Generally internships must by carried out in companies securing quality and  the highest possible level of fulfilling the internships goals and must be related to the power industry. The place for internship must be accepted by ET coordinator at home university.

The functions performed by student in this job will vary but may include the following:

  • Develops, prepares and/or reviews engineering plans and designs for structures, facilities and/or systems.
  • Develops, prepares and reviews reports and studies to identify and recommend engineering solutions.
  • Performs engineering inspections of systems operations and of structures and facilities during construction.
  • Implements statutes and regulations.
  • Reviews applications and issues permits.
  • Performs physical and chemical tests to assure the quality of construction and facility operations and ambient conditions.
  • Reviews engineering program activities to make recommendations for changes in policy and procedures.

Conducts engineering research and provides technical assistance to consulting engineers, contractors, public officials, municipalities and industry.

This is the Engineer-in- Training level where incumbents will initially perform a variety of routine engineering tasks in a training status under close supervision. Incumbents will perform basic engineering tasks such as the review of less complex plans, performance of basic engineering calculations, the writing of permits, the performance of computer modeling, and the inspection of parts of an engineering project.

The companies supporting ET program in internship delivery activity are presented in following sub-chapters. Note that this list is not closed and students could search for internships in other companies accepted by the ET program coordinator at home university.
