MK 019 - Industrial Internship for Agrobiotechnology

Gaining skills and experience to tackle the challenges of the future. On this page you find information about the compulsory internship module in our master degree programme Agrobiotechnoloy.

The international "Agrobiotechnology" Master's degree program contains a compulsory industrial internship that enables our students to gain an initial insight into the various areas of professional activity which they hope to pursue in the future. The internship also enables them to gain initial hands-on professional experience and establish contacts with potential employers. The internship can be conducted in various areas such as the chemical industry, an agricultural corporation, or the foodstuffs industry. The variety of industry contacts that our faculty possesses allow us to provide expert support to students seeking an internship.


MK019 Internship Rules during the Corona pandemic: Due to the corona pandemic we accept internships at the same institute (including JLU institutes) and with the same supervisor as for the student’s master thesis. Please note, however, that you need a different scientific topic (different methods, techniques) compared to your master thesis. This requirement will be verified by us.


Application and Execution

Our faculty's member of staff responsible for internships is Prof. Dr. Karl-Heinz Kogel. He advises our students on internships and helps decide whether the internship aimed at is likely to be of benefil for a given course of study. Students are expected to find out for themselves how to locate and apply for an internship in a company. However, a provisional  list containing several companies that offer internship places is available from the office of the Institute of Phytpathology (IFZ room B336).

The minimum duration of the internship is 8 weeks and is to be accomplished within the lecture-free period between the 3rd and 4th semesters. Students may, however, choose a different time period for their internship.

The internship is worth 12 credit points. In order for the internship to be deemed successful, evidence must be produced regarding both work done and skills gathered during the internship. This evidence is to be provided in the form of a certificate from the internship’s supervisor stating the time, the scientific topic (e.g. methods, strategies employed), and the quality of the student’s performance during the internship. A final examination with the faculty's member of staff responsible for internships (presently Prof. Dr. Karl-Heinz Kogel) at the end of the internship is compulsory. If a student wishes to produce his/her Master's thesis at a company, this period can not be credited as internship.
