The MSc study program includes an academic internship of 24-39 credits. The internship is a learning period during which the relationship with professional practice is emphasized. This means that the internship usually is carried out outside Wageningen University. Selection of a suitable host institute or industry is done by students themselves. Inspiration and suggestions may be obtained from previous thesis experience, from fellow students, or from departmental scientists. Students can also contact Jozef Linssen (see webpage of FQD). He has addresses and topic descriptions available of possible internships within Food Technology.
