Course content

This is an elective. The student must find and come to an agreement with a company, where he or she is allowed to work part-time. NTNU will strive to develop agreements with relevant companies in the region. The internship qualifies for 7.5 credits. If the student does not already have an agreement with a company or an institution, they should sign up for another elective before the registration deadline, to ensure enough credits in total for the 8th semester. Topics to be covered during the internship include:
