Engineering internship

The BSc Eng programme includes an internship of five months in a company.

The aim is to provide the students with a thorough understanding of the working conditions in the companies and of the market to which the companies produce and develop products.

During the internship, the student works as an assistant engineer and uses the theory from the degree programme to solve practical engineering assignments.

A natural part of daily life

The student takes part in the daily life in the company and performs a real work. This could be a project chosen by the student, or a problem that the company would like to have solved.

During the internship, the student gains insight into the reality they will meet after completion of their degree programme.

International opportunities

Some of the students choose to take the internship abroad - for instance in a Danish company that has departments abroad. It is also possible for Danish companies to enter into an internship with an international engineering student.

Every year, Aarhus University School of Engineering receives many talented and engaged students from all over the world who would like to experience how Danish companies work. And many companies really appreciate to have a breath of fresh air from the outside, a different academic approach to problems and know-how of the conditions on the market in the student’s home country.
