Syllabus
  • The Interim Project is based on taking up an internship in an organisation (company, state authority, etc.) with a focus in the area of study. The interim duration is 600 working hours, of which at least 300 will take place within the tuition period.
  • The student's work in the course of the internship must comply with the T-shaped prifile, requiring both deep IT knowledge and experience and extensive overview and basic skills in other disciplines (economy, management, law etc.).
  • The daily working shift will not exceed 8 hours.
  • No contract between the Faculty and the organisation is required.
  • While students may also choose from the offer published at the document server or from our partner companies (https://www.fi.muni.cz/for-partners/partners.html.en), it is up them to arrange their internship independently.
  • Students must make sure the company guarantor meets the stipulated criteria, i.e. completed university education in a technical field with at least three years of experience in the area of the internship. The guarantor’s experience is calculated as of their university graduation.
  • Student has a possibility to choose a business partner from a set of partners contracted by faculty for interim project accomplishment.
  • The 15 ECTS are obtained during one semester, i.e. 5 month, (recommended) work by chosen business partner 4 days in a week (with one day for technical report writing and consultations with faulty guarantor).
  • Students must complete their entire Interim Project in one organisation. Exceptions are only possible with the lecturer’s consent.
  • As an essential precondition for approval of the registration/enrolment of the course the student must deliver a signed Internship Proposal. The student must deliver the signed Proposal scanned at least five days before registration to email: hooperova@fi.muni.cz.
  • At the beginning of the term (deadline to be specified by the lecturer) students will provide an Internship Acceptance Protocol. Students will deliver the Acceptance Protocol bearing signatures of the student and the company guarantor using the Homework Vaults.
  • In the course of the term students will deliver the interim report electronically using the Homework Vaults (deadline to be specified by the lecturer).
  • The students will file the Technical Report via IS ten days before the end of the course, while presentation and Confirmation of Completion must be uploaded three days before the end of the course. The lecturer will announce dates for final interviews with students that provide basis for final assessment.
