As part of their curriculum, EIGSI engineers must develop skills to meet the needs of businesses. They gain real world experience through the required internships and other industrial projects in compagny placements.
An internship each year
EIGSI offers its students the opportunity to apply business knowledge in real-life situations. Our Internship Office posts internship offers received from businesses.
