In the Master's degree course, a scientific internship must be completed (see the respective “Fachspezifische Bestimmungen”). Scientific internships can be completed at public and industrial research facilities.

Please note the following points:

  • The total duration of 8 weeks can be divided into several internships.
  • The minimum running time for an internship is two weeks.
  • Internships can also be completed part-time, during semesters, and are then billed according to the weekly working time for the 8 weeks.
  • Students must first have the potential internship approved by the Examination Board (form see below).
  • Furthermore, students must register for the internship module in sb@home in the semester in which it has been completed. A retroactive posting is not possible.
  • After completion of the internship, the internship must be confirmed by the internship office (form see below).
  • In addition, according to FSB, internship report (see below) must be written (two pages).
