All IE FENS students are required to complete an internship project (IE 395) with a minimum duration of 8 weeks after 3rd year and to have a satisfactory (S) standing so as to receive their BSc degrees. The main objectives of the internship project are (i) to give the students a chance to gain first-hand working experience in an industrial setting, (ii) to enhance their technical and communications skills, (iii) to enable them to interact with engineers and technicians effectively. At the same time, the internship projects help the students' professional development. Students determine their internship companies/institutions based on their interests and programs they are enrolled in. At the end of the project, students are required to prepare and submit a final project report and make a presentation. Students have to be enrolled in an IE Diploma Program in order to register for this course. See the Internship Project Guideline for further details.
