The Internship & Job Orientation Project is a compulsory part of the MSc programme in Nanotechnology (course code 201700174). The internship has to be scheduled in fourth quarter of the first year of the master, has to cover at least 13 weeks (20EC) and should be conducted preferably at a company but can also be conducted at a research institute or an foreign university.
The TNW master programmes offer several opportunities for adding an international dimension to the knowledge and the practical experience of a student. Therefore the Internship & Job Orientation Project may be carried out in the Netherlands or abroad. We believe a stay abroad is a valuable component of the study; therefore stimulating measures like the Twente Mobility Fund (TMF-fund) and the Erasmus-scholarship are available.
The 20 EC is a minimum study load. The Internship & Job Orientation Project is coordinated by the internship coordinator. Orientation for the Internship & Job Orientation Project has to start half a year prior to national internship and a year prior to international internship. This time is required for actual arrangements of the internship, such as getting an accommodation, visa and all formalities.
Application for the Internship & Job Orientation Project has to be submitted by Mobility Online: https://www.utwente.nl/onderwijs/huidige-studenten/onderwijssystemen/#mobility-online
All relevant information, internship posts and all required forms for the internship can be found in the Canvas Course ‘Internships TNW’ and at the website
