Internship

Students and junior engineers were asked whether they were involved in internship or training experience during their undergraduate education, and if yes, they were asked whether this experience was beneficial or not.

About 60 % of both the students (N = 159) and junior engineers (N = 17) pointed that they have internships before. Most of the students 86 % (N = 127) and junior engineers 81 % (N = 13) stated that it was beneficial.
