In Technische Universität Kaiserslautern (UNIKL), Germany, EMSE students have two possibilities to carry out the internship:
- Apply directly for an internship at industrial partners. After an industrial partner agrees to offer the student an internship, the student clarifies with UNIKL about how the supervision is performed by university.
- Gain practical experience in joint research projects conducted by industrial partners (companies) and Fraunhofer IESE. The students will run through a complete development process and perform activities such as requirements engineering, interaction design, architectural design, component engineering, quality assurance, and also project management. In addition, students experience team work and communication. The projects provide the chance to experience development in an industrial context, gain specific domain knowledge, and get in touch with new trends / evaluate new technologies.
All EMSE students are requested to confirm, by September 30, whether they want to conduct the internship at Fraunhofer IESE or at an industrial partner.
