Placement procedure-

Upon completion of the internship, the student will be able to

  • take part in scientific research in the specific area of the students’ master’s specialization: get aquainted with the subject and state of the art, apply appropriate methods, discuss, contribute to research results, relate the activities to current developments in the field;
  • present their activities and research outcomes of the internship;
  • reflect on the development of their research skills and the role of research in their future career.

This internship is part of your training as scientific researcher: in the Research Seminar you have studied scientific literature, in this Research Internship you participate in a research project in one of our scientific groups, and in the Master Thesis you will carry out your own research project.

You will have to make the arrangements for your internship yourself. This includes finding a suitable research group and/or project, so this is best done in advance. Normally, you will carry out your research within one of the ICIS groups involved in your master’s specialization. It is also possible, however, to arrange an ‘external internship’ and participate in research at another institute, in industry, or even abroad. In any case, your choice of location and research project requires approval by the coordinator of your master’s specialization.

Teaching formats
• 420 hours guided individual project work

Extra information teaching methods:
During the internship you will develop your research skills by participating in the activities of a research group and contributing to a research project. One of the members of the group will act as your contact and daily supervisor. In your internship report you will keep track of your activities and progress. It consists of three parts: (1) Start-up: scientific context, internship plan; (2) Midterm review: activities carried out, results, evaluation, plans for the remainder of the internship; (3) Final review: activities carried out, results, evaluation, reflection on your (future) role of researcher (career orientation). The internship is concluded with an oral presentation.
• domain specific research methods
• planning, conducting research
• presentation
Test information
The final grade is based on assessment of:

• acquired research skills (45%)
• quality of the research contribution (30%)
• internship report (15%)
• final presentation (10%)
You have successfully completed the core courses of the master’s specialization. In the research plan you will have to show that your progress in the master’s program gives sufficient background for the chosen internship.
