Internship: General Information

The industrial placement (BPP) is a mandatory part of the program. According to the examination regulations, the duration of the mandatory internship is 26 weeks for the PO 20190 students and from 19 - 26 weeks for PO 2012 students, respectively. During the internship the status as a student remains untouched.

In virtually all cases, the internship and the Master Thesis are executed at a company. It is the responsibility of each student to apply regularly to potential companies to find a placement or a job for the Master Thesis.

During the winter semester, a mandatory information meeting will be organised providing information and guidance for the application process.

Before you start with your internship, please make sure that you fulfil the following formal requirements.

  • German language test: At least A1 or higher
  • 30 Credits Points (45 CP recommended)

In case you have prior working experience, the internship may be shortened. Please contact the BPP responsible Prof. Krauss for details.
