Learning unit contents

This is an technical internship with the aim to introduce the professional life to the student in companies where bioengineers work. The student must identify the different tasks to be realized during the internship and validate them by his supervisor and the internship coordinator throughout the signature of an agreement.

Learning outcomes of the learning unit

The technical interniship must allow the student to:

  • realise tasks related to the bioengineer job;
  • access to a better understanding of constraints and characteristics of work in professionnal context through the discovery of the reality of the job of a bioengineer, and a sector of activity;
  • mature its professional project and to better indentify its expectations, its adapability, its soft skills, etc.;
  • acquire a necessary professional approach to find an employment (conduct a preliminary reflection on the choice of the company where he wants to do his internship, writing a CV and a cover letter and prepartion for an interview, etc. ).

Recommended or required readings

The rules are mentioned in the intership guide available on GxABT intranet.
The score is composed of :

  • technical part (40%)
  • evaluation of soft skills (40%)
  • company structure (20%)
The final score will be the weighted average of the aforementioned parts. With a strong deficit in one of those parts, the final score will correspond to the lowest score obtained in these 3 parts. If a strong deficit appears, a feedback will be given about the modalities of evaluation for a second session by the internship coordinator based on the comments given by the supervisor and intership lead. These modalities could be related to the realization of a new internship.
Yellow or orange code: the evaluation stays the same.
