Academic internships

 

External academic internships are educational activities that allow students to put their theoretical knowledge into practice and gain experience, improving skills and abilities that have been worked on throughout the degree. It also allows them to have the first contact with the world of work and can serve as a gateway to it.

For companies hosting interns allows them to detect new talent and contribute to the creation of university talent. 

The educational model of TecnoCampus studies is based on the pillars of the innovation, entrepreneurship and professionalization.
