Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will be familiar with the occupational profile of a civil engineer from the areas of construction management, production, cost control and supervision (construction company), from the areas of planning, construction, construction preparation (engineering office) or from the area of administration.
They will have improved previously acquired skills by working constructively on engineering tasks in real professional situations.
They will be familiar with internal company structures in terms of organization and processes. Furthermore, they will be able to integrate themselves into the social structures of work situations.
Students are required to write an internship report. In order to do so, they must use and futhere develop the skills acquired during their studies.
At the end of the course, students will give a talk on one of the main topics of their internship, in which they will be required to convey a technical subject to an audience.
