Internship (Abroad)

Are you a TU Delft student interested in doing an internship as part of your study programme? Maybe taking part in a project is of interest to you?

Doing an internship is the best way to gain practical experience, and you can prepare well for your future career. You learn to apply scientific knowledge and academic skills in a realistic work situation. You also learn to function independently and responsibly in an organization that is related to your study.

At the faculties of Applied Sciences (TNW)and Aerospace Engineering (AE) the internship is a compulsory part of the study. At the other faculties, the internship is often part of the study as a minor (BSc) or elective (MSc). If you want to do an internship in the Netherlands or abroad with EC, check the possibilities and the conditions set by your study programme via the relevant internship website and/or Brightspace course/ organization. If you still have questions after reading this information, you can contact the internship office or the internship coordinator of your faculty, see the link to the contact details.
