Principles of the Implementation of Industrial Summer Trainings

This document covers the implementation of industrial internship (summer training) for the students of Mechanical Engineering Department according to the Regulations which was set by Işık University Senate. There are two compulsory industrial internships in Mechanical, Mechatronics and Automotive Engineering undergraduate programs during their summer vacations of students.

1.    ME290/MCE290/AUE290 Summer Training-I

     (For sophomores and at the end of 4th semester normally)

It is performed in an industrial company which has sufficient infrastructure in mechanical, mechatronics and/or automotive engineering for minimum 20 workdays. Manufacturing, assembly and quality control activities should be covered during this summer training. 

The students are expected to gain the following knowledge and skills (outcomes) at the end of this activity:

1. Know implementations of manufacturing and assembly processes,

2. Gain awareness of quality control processes in manufacturing,

3. Be acquainted with organizational structure of manufacturing corporations,

4. Write a report about training activities in Turkish.  (Note: Report language is English for foreign students and the students who performed their training activities abroad)

 

2.  ME390/MCE390/AUE390 Summer Training-II

     (For juniors and at the end of 6th semester normally)

It is performed in an industrial company which has sufficient infrastructure in mechanical, mechatronics and/or automotive engineering for minimum 20 workdays. Design, research & development, management and organizational activities should be covered during this summer training. 

The students are expected to gain the following knowledge and skills (outcomes) at the end of this activity:

1. Be acquainted with Work Planning, Design and Research & Development types of activities,

2. Gain experience about the effects of engineering implementations on non-technical units of the organizations,

3. Write a report about training activities in Turkish.  (Note: Report language is English for foreign students and the students who performed their training activities abroad)

Training Period

Summer training will be done normally during academic vacations. Sundays and/or official holidays will not be accounted for the training. However, if a full day shift on Saturdays is present then an official letter which is explaining the situation and written by the company must be sent to Mechanical Engineering Department.

Senior standing students who have minimum three weekdays free (i.e. there is no lecture, laboratory, exam load in those days) can perform their training activities during academic year and/or summer course.

Training Place

Training must be done in a public or private company which is suitable to the program of the student (Mechanical, mechatronics or automotive). Trainings can be done in internal or foreign companies. The host companies must have at least two full time engineers and one of them must be mechanical engineer strictly. Working in the same company during Summer Trainings I and II are subjected to the consent of the department.

Application

To find companies for summer training activities is one of the important responsibilities of students. Therefore, the application to find a training place will be done by students. If there will be a necessity to supply a document to proceed the request, the students can obtain an official letter from Dean's Office for this purpose. The determination of training place is subjected to the approval by the department, according to their qualifications of the companies satisfying the criteria of internship for Mechanical/Mechatronics/Automotive Engineering students. 

Internship Form will be downloaded from the web site of the department in three copies and filled by the student after the approval of training company. The copies of Internship Form will be signed and approved by the company. All three copies will be approved by Department Head, Faculty Dean and Human Resources Division respectively. One of the copies will be held by Human Resources Department, one of the copies will be submitted to the host company and the last copy is remained with the student. This copy should be submitted to the department with the Training Report of the student at the end of the activity.  

Internship Responsibilities

Students are responsible from the filling and sending to the department of Internship Evaluation Form by the authorities of the host company. Students also will write a report explaining the activities which have been carried out after the completion of the training. The report should be approved by one of the authorities of the company. 

After training

The Training Report, Internship Evaluation Form and the last copy of Internship Form should be submitted to Mechanical Engineering Department before the end of Add/Drop Week. The report will not be accepted unless all documents are not submitted completely.

Assessment and Results of Summer Training-I and II will be announced in the boards of the department. If revision of a report is requested, the due date of submission of revised report is the end of course withdrawal week.  

If there will be hesitation about the information covered by reports, the students may be asked to make an oral explanation of the work carried out during the training in a detailed manner by department.
