Skills and learning outcomes
Description of contents: programme
As content is understood all those activities carried out by students in companies, entities and organizations, which aim to provide a practical complement (or academic-practical complement) to academic training provided that such activity is related to their academic training and their possible career opportunities. In particular, the training objective of the internship will necessarily include the following aspects: - Tasks to be developed by the student. - Knowledge to be acquired by the student. - Whether the student will participate in design, planning or development tasks. - Within which projects or areas the internship will be framed. - Tools that will be used.
Learning activities and methodology
The student will have a company advisor, who will direct, guide and supervise the activities of the practice. There will also be an academic tutor at Uc3m who will be informed about the progress of the practice and will provide support to the student if necessary. The academic tutor will carry out the tutorials that he or she considers necessary and will also grade the student. Internship Work: 5 ECTS = a 150 hours of internship in the company. Theoretical work: 1 ECTS = 30 hours to make a report of the work done during the internships in the company. Its purpose is to prove that the internship goals have been fullfilled, and the competences to be adquired have been correctly acquired.
Assessment System
The evaluation system includes the evaluation of the activities carried out during the internship in the company. For this, the following elements will be used: - Report of the tutor in the company: The academic tutor of the Uc3m will request this report from the tutor of the company. - Student report: of the work done during the practice. The student will do it according to the instructions published in Aula Global to which he or she will have access once enrolled in the subject. Both elements will give a 100% rating. The academic tutor at UC3M, based on the above documents, will assess the work according to the form established for this purpose. Students who do not present the report will be rated as NOT SUBMITTED. The Tutor must send the assessment record with this grade. If the student gives up the practice for which the subject has been validated and enrolled without having reached enough number of hours to pass the subject, he or she will be graded as NOT SUBMITTED because will not be able to present the report.

The course syllabus may change due academic events or other reasons.
