Eth Internship Agreement

During the internship, students learn how to manage environmental issues in a professional manner. You should use the knowledge you have learned from their studies. Detailed information on possible internship areas (companies), objectives and requirements, as well as the time and duration of the professional internship can be found on the introductory page of professional internships. Unlike internships, master`s projects that have been concluded in a company are not designed (supervised) by an agreement with the school in a mandatory (supervised) manner. However, if the company or the Master`s Professor/Senior Scientist wishes to sign an agreement, there is a standard contract (contact with your teacher). In general, the creation of an employment contract between the company and the student is incompatible with the academic framework of a master`s degree, especially under standard confidentiality clauses that relate to the results of the project. Written approval of the internship contract by the internship coordinator and the teacher is necessary for the credits to be issued. The internship contract can be submitted to the coordinator of the internship on paper or digital support. Students must document their internship in a personalized report and correct important internship documents.

In addition, students are invited to submit a form, their evaluation and a copy of the reference letter to the internship coordinator. A teacher from D-USYS or ETH assists students during their professional internship. Students ask teachers if they would like to take on this task. Teachers can also delegate this task to employees. All teachers are free to accept the application or pass on the students to others. In the case of internships outside Switzerland, the student must verify that the insurance coverage extends through his insurance policy to the country where the internship takes place. For some countries (for example. B United States, Japan), it is recommended to have additional insurance to cover certain medical expenses that are not covered by the compulsory health insurance of Switzerland (LAMAL).

In the case of internships abroad, students are required to inform the internship coordinator and teachers of their situation through one or two brief interim reports.
