After two (or three*) semesters of coursework, all students have to complete a (minimum) two or three month internship with the industry or with an academic institution. It is required for the student to complete an internship related to his or her field of study at TUM Asia.
One can secure an internship in Singapore, Germany, or in any other country in Asia, Europe or the rest of the world. Students who have secured a scholarship with their sponsoring company will undergo their internship in the company (this can be conducted in any branch of the company worldwide). Students without an industrial sponsorship are to look for internships independently and it is expected that all students take an active approach about it. TUM Asia will assist to provide students with any possible internship opportunities, but students are to lead the search for internships themselves.
The purpose of the internship is to provide a structured and supervised work experience, in application to the theory work learnt. It is also a platform to develop soft-skills not learnt in the classroom setting and this will help the students to gain job-related skills and achieve their desired career goals.
There will be an informative briefing session conducted for all students to equip them with the necessary knowledge regarding internship and thesis guidelines of TUM Asia. This briefing will be held during the first (or second*) semester of your studies at TUM Asia.
