Internships

Are you a bachelor student?

Electrical Engineering
We offer an Internship minor for Electrical Engineering bachelor students who want to gain experience in a company. This is a six-month fulltime internship at a company or research institute in the Netherlands or abroad. Please enroll for course ET3000 on Brightspace for orientation, information as well as preparation.

Computer Science & Engineering
Bachelor students of Computer Science do a software project in their second year of their bachelor. This project is for about 10 weeks and is typically fulfilled at a company. There is no room for (another) internship during the BSc Computer Science.The faculty of EEMCS will not sign any agreements or declarations for internships that are not part of the study programme.

Are you a master student?

Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering or Embedded Systems
We offer the possibility to do a three month internship at a company as part of your free electives. Please enroll for course EE5010 on Brightspace for orientation, information as well as preparation and student manual. Speak to your master track coordinator and your thesis professor to see if the internship fits into your IP (Individual Exam Programme).

Computer Science
An internship cannot be part of your master programme. So if you wish to do an internship at a company it is your own responsibility to seek and arrange it, and to make time of your own for that purpose. The faculty of EEMCS will not sign any agreements or declaration for internships that are not part of the study programme.

Applied Mathematics
It is possible to do an internship as part of your master programme. The internship consist of a mathematical modeling project which is carried out at an external institute. The project is carried out at an institute where mathematics itself is generally not of primary interest but used as a tool to solve practical problems. The duration of a project can be up to three months (WI5118). Please enroll for course WI5118 on Brightspace for orientation, information as well as preparation. Before the project starts, the student has to write a project proposal. If the proposal is approved by the internship coordinator of the relevant specialization, the student can start with the project.

Sustainable Energy Technology
We offer the possibility to do a three month internship at a company as part of your free electives. The internship should concern a design, model, system integration or methodology implementation, or an experimental study relevant for the company involved and within the Profile Cluster. Please enroll for course SET3822 on Brightspace for orientation, information as well as preparation. Before the project starts, the student has to write a project proposal. If the project proposal is approved by the supervisor and the relevant profile leader, the student can start the project.

 

European Wind Energy Master - Electrical Power systems
Students of this inter-university double degree master track can also do an internship as part of their program. The internship duration for EWEM students lasts minimal four weeks for which you can be rewarded with 6 ECTS. The requirements are the same as for the EE5010 internship elective, so please enroll to that Brightspace course.

How to find an internship?

On the Brightspace pages of the internship course codes EE5010, SET3822 and ET3000 you can find a step by step approach on how to arrange an internship and get the internship approved.
We encourage students to find an internship on their own. You know best which companies appeal to you (e.g. large, small, abroad, nearby, non-profit). You can orientate by looking at the company offers that are posted on the Brightspace page. You can also ask your teachers, fellow students, or contact the Career Centre. Offers on the Brigthspace page are not approved yet. The internship needs to be approved by your TU Delft supervisor.

Contract
TU Delft as well as all research Universities in the Netherlands (UNL) have introduced one standard internship agreement for internships at Dutch companies. The new internship agreement makes the arrangements between students, universities and internship organisations more straightforward.
A standard internship agreement helps students, the private sector and the degree programme know what they can expect. The agreement sets out clear arrangements on the purpose, supervision and assessment of the internship as well as student’s rights, including their legal status, and the way disputes are handled. The UNL internship template is mandatory for all students doing an internship as part of their study programme at Dutch companies.

Students doing an internship abroad should ask for a template 3-party internship agreement from the company and send this template for a review to the Internship Office.

You can find the contract on the Brightspace pages. For any questions, please contact the internship coordinator at your faculty.
