Research Internship

Research Internship is a course offered specifically for DDP students, in which they have on-site job training provided by companies, research institutes and other workplaces that use cutting-edge technologies. In addition to the actual training, students are provided with pre- and post-training orientation and technical guidance by instructors.

Students choose companies, research institutes or government offices with fields of application related to their research subjects through consultation with instructors. After clearly identifying their internship goals, they undergo training with and receive assessment from their supervisors in the workplace. After the internship, they review the experience with reference to their original goals and hold meetings with instructors on their future research and careers.
