Organizational remarks

Professors (or permanent scientists) propose intership subjects that they would be willing to sponsor academically. These subjects emanate from companies or research centers. Students propose subjects on their own, but these subjects must be approved by an academic sponsor.
A list of subjects is available on the website http://www.fsasurvey.ulg.ac.be/tfe/list.php. The webpage http://www.montefiore.ulg.ac.be/tfe-internships-companies lists companies that regularly propose internship in the field of electrical engineering and computer science.
Students' University registration must be complete by the time they start the internship.
Before the intership begins, the student has to send the completed internship agreement and the risk analysis form (cf. http://www.facsa.ulg.ac.be/cms/c_2547614/en/fsa-internships) to the intership coordinator.
