The BSc internship consists of a supervised placement in a food company or food-related organisation in- or outside the Netherlands, that enables students to gain practical experience outside the university. The internship consists of a defined individual project(s) on BSc level. Students are responsible for finding an appropriate internship at a company themselves. The internship will only be accepted if supervision of the host institution (by someone having at least an MSc degree or similar) is guaranteed.

Learning outcomes:

After successful completion of this course students are expected to be able to:
- assess the relevance of the knowledge and skills (learned during the study) in practical and real work situations in the domain of food science and technology;
- acquire additional relevant knowledge, skills and insights in food companies or food-related organisations;
- reflect critically on the own performance and process of working in a food company or food-related organisation and extends this to a well-motivated choice for a follow-up study programme.
