The internship is to provide students with insight into different opportunities and conditions for knowledge application. The work duties are to be sufficiently complex to enable the students to apply their acquired theoretical knowledge. The relevance of the work duties in relation to the study programme is to be taken into account. In addition, the course is to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the demands and skills involved in professional life, which are not of a strictly technical nature but often directly linked to the role of the engineer. During the internship, the student is to work under the terms and conditions that apply at the workplace and is to be assigned specific work duties. During the internship period, the student is also to develop their ability to serve a contributing member of staff.

Examination details

Grading scale: UG - (U,G) - (Fail, Pass)
Assessment: For a Pass on the course the student shall:
- submit a written report of reflections at the end of the internship period;
- keep a log for the duration of the course. The log is to be submitted to their supervisor at LTH every week;
- deliver an oral presentation with a subsequent discussion during a seminar announced at the department.

The student is required to spend at least 8 weeks, full-time, at the chosen workplace. On completion of the course, the supervisor at the workplace is to verify the student's attendance and active participation at the workplace during the period in question. The supervisor at LTH is to be notified of any sick leave. The same supervisor will also determine whether the student's absence is acceptable in proportion to the course.

Throughout the course, the student is to keep a log, and submit these entries and reflections (1-2 pages) at the end of every working week to the supervisor at LTH. The log entries are to be included in the final report.

The following three questions are to be answered every week:
1) What are the three most important things I have learnt this week?
2) What could I have done differently this week?
3) What can I do better next week?

The final report (4-5 pages, excluding log entries) is to include the following:
- A presentation of the company
- A description of the student's role and work duties during the internship
- Actors (different professional groups) with whom the student has come into contact
- An account of the greatest learning experience from the internship, the most useful knowledge gained from the course, and what they feel has been missing from the course and they want to learn more about after completing the internship
- Reflections and conclusions.

The examiner, in consultation with Disability Support Services, may deviate from the regular form of examination in order to provide a permanently disabled student with a form of examination equivalent to that of a student without a disability.
