The student should have practical knowledge about the chosen workplace i.e.:
The student must:
The student should be considered as a regular employee and solve the engineering tasks that fits into the work of the group that the students is a part of. I.e. the student meets at the same time and for the same number of hours as is normal for the rest of the company.
Half way through the traineeship, the student meets with his/her supervisor in the company for an evaluation (oral or written). In that way possible insufficiencies can be corrected in the last part of the traineeship.
During/right after the traineeship the student must work on a semester report consisting of two parts:
1) A traineeship report describing the company/institution as well as the project that the student has worked on during the stay. Should also include a description of the engineering knowledge gained during the stay.
2) A special report about a topic in relation to the subject of the project and the objectives of the normal semester project.
