They may not start their internship unless they have completed 75 credits (i.e., at the end of the 4th semester). The internship period must be completed in order to graduate from the program.

Purpose of the Internship

The purpose of the student internship is for environmental engineering students to gain practical, technical and management skills and experience related to their theoretical knowledge.

Steps for Starting an Internship

1. First of all, students are urged to read carefully the Internship Principles located at the Civil Engineering Faculty website and the ITU Portal.

2. Before starting their internships, all students must complete a one-time workplace safety training.

3. In order for the insurance procedures to start, the necessary information should be filled in at portal.itu.edu.tr and must be sent to the faculty administration for approval at least 15 days before the official start date of the internship.
