Design your education

Internships give you the opportunity to design your education in the academic direction you find interesting. An internship is also your chance to put theory into practice with hands-on experience in the real world. You can go on internships either in Denmark or abroad and thereby get an international dimension in your work. The internships are compulsory and profession-oriented. They are placed in the last four semesters (semesters 4,6 & 7). This means that you by then have gained professional and specialised competences which you can use to contribute to the work place.

    • Testing
