The three months internship will be absolved within an engineering company in Germany. One is dealing with Geographic Information Systems; one is working in the food processing sector (Food drying). It is expected that the intern will actively work within the company. He/she may come with an own project, e.g. the working title of the thesis, to undertake own studies within the framework of the company. A full report on the three months stay is to be handed in before the end of the internship.

The 3 months internship will cover travel costs to Germany and public transport costs within Germany, and a stipend of € 1.400,00/month for each completed month in Germany. The Demand Driven Teaching project is financially supported by the German Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) through the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
