International Internship Programs

International Internship Programs






According to the educational regulations of the university currently in force, the international internship programs will not be considered as the obligatory internship course of the students. Nevertheless, these programs are of particular interest to those students who want to put their knowledge into practice by working at international workplaces/research labs. It is worth mentioning that in 2018 over 120 B.Sc./M.Sc. students of SUT entered into international internship programs which shows a surge of interest.
