Internship

Each student of PAMEP specialization is obliged to take a 10-weeks-long (approximately 500 credit hours of student’s work) internship in a R&D company or a research group outside of the Faculty of Physics at AMU (including international companies and groups). Such internship takes place during the last (IV) semester of the program as part of “External practices” course. The internship program choice is the responsibility of a student although it has to be approved by the dissertation supervisor, who deems the internship completed on the basis of an appropriate document signed by an internship supervisor or a research group supervisor.

There will be 3 types of trainings. The list of example internship possibilities (preliminary agreements confirmed) is presented below:
