In your first year of the Master's program, you will do an externship. This external internship will give you an impression of the current research field and an idea of your future career opportunities. You will gain research experience and develop the professional work ethic and independence you need for your final project in the last year of the program.
You will do your externship at a company, an institute or a research laboratory of another university. You can also decide to accept an externship abroad. Approximately 60% of the BME students opt for this. The internship lasts three months. Placements are always with organizations that your externship supervisor (your supervising professor) has close ties with. This ensures that you receive proper supervision and achieve academically sound results.
