Module content:
Procedure: The student must find an employer, either independently or with the support of the university, who will cooperate with him/her during the practical phase. The employment contract signed by the company must be submitted to the office responsible for internships/practical study at the respective faculty. In addition, the student must have a supervising professor whose name must also be passed on to the office responsible for internships/practical study at the respective faculty.
During the practical phase, the supervising professor serves as the student´s contact person.
At the end of the practical phase, the student must present the office responsible for internships/practical study at the respective faculty with an employer´s reference that will then be passed on to the supervising professor in copy. In addition, a five-page report on the completion of the practical study phase (consisting of WIBASc615 and WIBASc715) must be prepared. On the basis of the student assessment in the employer´s reference and the supervising professor´s impression, the supervising professor will then accept or reject the work performed as a practical phase.
The content depends on the individual task and should be coordinated between the student, the university professor and the company.
