Practical training is a 6 ECTS course in the programme of Innovation and Technology Management. As 1 ECTS corresponds to 26 hours of work, an internship generally lasts 4 weeks as a full-time job, i.e. 40 hours per week. Students usually carry out the internship during the summer following the second semester. Reporting will be done at the beginning of the third semester. Other times for completing the internship should be agreed with the programme manager. After students have found a place of internship, they have to submit the application/agreement (see Appendix 1: Internship application). Practical training ends with a self-evaluation report followed by a discussion at the final seminar.
The aim of the practical training is to solve practical problems or tasks and should have a correlation with the courses taught in the curriculum in order develop experience and specific competences.
After passing the course, the student:
can describe the problem at hand;
can collect, systematize and critically evaluate information;
can analyse the acquired information and, based on that, give suggestions to the company on how to solve the problem
can present the practical problem and solutions in a focused and systemic way
is able to analyse and critically evaluate its own activities
Internship may be carried out in different institutions in Estonia or abroad (state or private companies, ministries, international agencies, higher education institutions, start-up or spin-off companies etc). Also, students can form a team and develop an idea either for-profit or non-profit organisation.
