Five-Month Research Internship
The research internship is an introduction to scientific research methods, focused on solving a new and original problem to which the scientific approach can be applied.
It takes place at the end of the third year for a period of 5 months in a public research organization (CNRS laboratory, Inserm, etc.) or in a company's R&D center in France or abroad. Students are required to submit a written report and undergo a viva voce on their internship.
This internship is an opportunity for students to apply their scientific knowledge, learn a scientific approach in an extended personal research project and join a work team. This professional experience also allows students to discover the sector in which they are specializing.
The research internship can be completed abroad either within a research organization or in a company's R&D center. This adds a cultural immersion and linguistic aspect to this professional experience.
