Lecture contents

The internship serves as an introduction for the students to work independently. The tasks begin with the search for a suitable internship and internship supervisor. Students learn under the supervision of a professional the relevant professional practice in a biotechnology company/research institute and/or independent scientific work. During the internship the subject-, methodological and social competencies acquired during the study, will be implemented in the desired field of occupational activity and practically consolidated.
Another important teaching content is to summarize the internship results in form of an internship report and the documentation of scientific results.
