Types and objectives of internships

Internships represent an important experience for our students by allowing them in particular to achieve the following goals: submersion into the professional world of a company, bring to life the importance of group work, acknowledge the goals set by company in its processes, application of the knowledge acquired during the university years.

The Civil Engineering internships have a duration of at least eight weeks. In general, they can be divided into two types:

Short internship of two months, which is in general done during the periods between semesters, allows students to not elongate the duration of their Master´s degree. This internship can be done in two parts, but it needs to be in the same company.

Long internship of at most six months results in general in adding one semester to the length of the student´s Master´s degree.
