Students must make sure the company guarantor meets stipulated criteria, i.e. completed university education in technical field with three years of experience in the area of the internship in the least. The guarantor’s experience is calculated as of their university graduation.
  • PA185 is the first part of the internship to be followed up by PA186 in the same organisation in subsequent term. Exceptions are only possible with the lecturer’s consent. In case there is a threat of conflict of interests, the lecturer may choose not to approve the enrolment.
