The purpose of the following document is to guide you for the internships you are responsible for during your education at Işık University, Department of Industrial Engineering. There are two internships to complete.
The purpose of an internship is to provide a well-planned and supervised experience that integrates the student's academic preparation into a related, applied work experience in an industrial, business, or government environment. During the internship period, the intern will apply academic principles to the solution of practical problems in various areas of Industrial Engineering. Internships are primarily a learning experience. Interns should develop skills, acquire the ability to perform certain engineering tasks, and observe how businesses run.
Some of these skills may be related to things you have already studied in school; others may not. A broader form of learning might be called intellectual growth. Your internship will help you to think more concretely and expansively about issues raised in your courses, to apply academic theories to real-world situations, and to see whether academic theories adequately explain what's going on in the real world.
How to Apply
First, please read the Işık University Internship Regulations carefully. You must secure an internship position from a company that satisfies the general requirements of Işık University. The company should employs at least TWO INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERS and at least ONE OF THESE INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERS should be employed in the deparment/unit you will do internship. Thematically, it is ideal if one of the internships is in a service-oriented company (airport, hospital, bank, etc.) and the other is in a physical system-oriented (factory, energy, retail, etc.). Internships should be done in different companies. Exceptions can be made for large companies with different functions, provided that internships are performed in different units, by department decision (you can get advice from your consultants). When your internship interview / application is positive, you must complete the necessary paperwork process. For information about the paperwork process, you should follow the Electronic Internship Application Process below.
IŞIKIE Intership Reports
After the internship, an internship report should be submitted to the internship coordinator of the Department of Industrial Engineering (the internship coordinator is each student's own advisor), summarizing the internship experience, the relevance of this experience to the student's academic program, and the internship evaluation. The outline below shows the sections that should be included in the report you are submitting. Your report should be written in English according to this template. Reports written in other departmental / university formats will not be accepted.
