Annex IV to the implementation regulations: Internship regulations
(1) Aim of the internship
Students shall complete an internship in preparation for their professional practice. Its purpose is to give an insight into the activities of civil engineering and geodesy as well as the organisation and human-social problems of the work process and to provide basic knowledge of the associated work procedures.
(2) Duration of the internship
The minimum duration of the internship is 60 working days. The internship cannot be waived. Sick days are not counted towards the internship.
(3) Time of the internship
The internship should be completed before the course of study or, in justified exceptional cases, during the lecture-free period of the basic studies, if possible bundled in larger periods of time.
(4) Activities during the internship
Practical work on a construction site, in a workshop, in an engineering or planning office or in a subject-related authority shall be deemed to be a valid internship. Internships may be carried out in any institution which offers activities in accordance with these regulations. The internship office does not provide placement or recommendations. Vocational training with a technical reference to civil engineering or geodesy are also activities in the sense of these internship regulations.
(5) Reporting on the internship
The internship activities carried out shall be documented by certificates from the supervising body. A certificate must contain the following information:
- Name and location of the company, engineering or planning office, authority,
- Name of the intern,
- Date and duration of the internship,
- Nature of the activities carried out during the internship
If the internship was completed abroad, the Internship Office may require a certified translation of the certificate.
(6) Recognition of the internship
For the recognition of the internship, the certificates must be presented to the Internship Office during office hours in good time before registration for the Bachelor's thesis.
(7) Proof of the internship
Proof of the internship activity recognized by the Internship Office must be presented when registering for the Bachelor's thesis. This is, among other things, a prerequisite for admission to this examination..
(8) Concluding remarks
It is the student's responsibility to make the best possible use of the advantages of internships. These internship regulations only define the minimum requirements. It is recommended that students complete additional internships in line with their subject specialisation. The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering encourages and supports the completion of the internship abroad.
