Academic Internships

Requirements

We consider universities that rank better than TU Wien Informatics in the relevant surveys THE, Shanghai or QS as well as distinguished research institutes as desirable partners in our academic internship program. Such institutions should provide a general overview of possible projects for interested students, ideally via a dedicated website. There should also exist a specific contact person for students’ inquiries. Every internship project must be supervised by a competent sponsor who ensures a proper working environment.

Internship Projects’ Characteristics

Be it research institutions or universities, internship projects shall engage interns with research-related work and comprise 150 hours total working time (equivalent to 6 ECTS). Projects need to be properly defined and documented throughout the duration of the internship and include a concise preliminary description (authored by the supervisor or the student). At the project’s end, the student has to hand in a written project report. In a short assessment the supervisor evaluates and grades the student’s performance.

Current Academic Partners

  • ENS Paris-Saclay (FR)
  • ETH Zürich (CH)
  • IST Austria (AT)
  • Max Planck Institut – Informatik (DE)
  • Purdue University (USA)
  • University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (USA)

Industrial Internships

Requirements

Cooperation partners in industries must be reputable, well known companies who strive for excellence and are particularly affine to and active in research. Such companies should provide a general overview of possible projects for interested students, ideally via a dedicated website. There should also exist a specific contact person for students’ inquiries. Every internship project must be supervised by a competent sponsor who ensures a proper working environment.

Industrial Internships’ Characteristics

Internships shall expose students to real-life industrial research and development and comprise 150 hours total working time (equivalent to 6 ECTS). Projects need to be properly defined and documented throughout the duration of the internship and include a concise preliminary description (authored by the supervisor or the student). At the project’s end, the student has to hand in a written project report. In a short assessment the supervisor evaluates and grades the student’s performance.

Current Industrial Partners

  • Infineon (AT)

Scholarship Program

Attract Outstanding Talent …

Excellent students are highly sought after, and universities and companies alike are in competition to attract talent. Scholarships are a very important incentive to attract these talented individuals. Therefore, funding and reputation are key. A sponsor should be well-known and have a visible strive for excellence and research orientation in relation to informatics.

… Through Our Scholarship Program

We offer such sponsors annual and bi-annual Bachelor with Honors scholarships for €3.000 to €5.000 per annum. The funding ensures the financial support of students while putting only light-weight additional responsibilities on the student (e.g., ambassador role for his or her sponsor). To receive funding through our program, students must undergo a competition-based selection process: They need to apply and to demonstrate their motivation, grades and curriculum vitæ. Together with the Bachelor of Honors program’s college, the sponsor selects the ideal candidate(s) based on performance and motivation.

We are happy to talk to you about cooperations in research and industrial internships or becoming a sponsor in our scholarship program.

The Bachelor with Honors program is a great initiative. The initial implementation shows a lot of promise. The internship program is especially laudable.
