In the mids of the internship, the student arrange a meeting with the internship supervisor (nominated by the coordinator), you and the supervisor from the company. This meeting analyzes the state of the internship and plan together about the goals of the latter period of the internship.

At the end of your internship, you request a job certificate from the workplace and attach it to your internship report. In addition, you enjoy practicing for the younger generation.
