Internships

During the bachelor program of Industrial Design, students have the opportunity to do an internship as part of their curriculum. For a period of three to four months, students will contribute to your organization.  

An internship provides students with the opportunity to experience a professional design or design research context, and to develop specific knowledge and skills outside the educational program. It is important that students will work on their own development as formulated in their personal development plan.


During the internship, students take part in the work of your company, institution or research department. They will integrate their learned expertise in the context of the organization and develop their identity and vision in a professional setting. During the internship, the students are triggered to think about their future profession.
