The internship programme runs on the 6th semester. The student is responsible for obtaining an internship. The host company is normally expected to pay salaries to the student. The Board of Studies appointed supervisor may in special cases assist with the provision of the necessary business contacts. The university must approve the internship company, and an agreement between the student and the company must be made. The company points out a person (company coordinator), who will be the one the student refers to. Internship agreement sets out learning objectives, assignments, time of internship, work, company coordinator, supervisor, etc. (see current guidance from SICT) and signed by supervisor, student, coordinator and board of study before the internship begins If the development of the host company necessitates significant changes to the approved internship agreement, the coordinator and study board must approve this. During the internship, student must keep a diary, a daily reporting on the events that happen during the day, primarily on the work done. The internship report must be prepared following the same general guidelines, which have been applied in the preparation of project reports on the program prior semester. However, the internship report must include: • Description of the company – including organization • Description of the company’s work • Overview of the work in which the student has been involved. • Thorough documentation of at least one field of study relevant subjects that the student has worked with during the internship.
