The purpose of the project-oriented internship is that the student engages and works in a professional context where physics and/or scientific modelling play a role. The student will achieve experience with using the thinking and methods of physics and/or scientific modelling in a practical context. The student will write a project based on the internship which can either report the results of the work done during the internship in a scientific manner or report the work along with an analysis and reflection on the role of physics and scientific modelling in the workplace in question.

|Evaluation and feedback||
All projects’ processes will include ongoing dialogue-based (oral) evaluation between the students and the supervisor. Both students and supervisors are expected to provide constructive feedback and viewpoints during the process. Feedback concerning the academic content and progression, process and collaboration.
Every other year when the projects are handed in, there will also be an evaluation through a questionnaire in SurveyXact. The Study Board will handle all evaluations along with any comments from the head of study.
Furthermore, students can, in accordance with RUCs ‘feel free to state your views’ strategy through their representatives at the study board, send evaluations, comments or insights from their project process to the study board during or after the project process.
The programme is negotiated with the place of internship and supervisor and stated in the internship agreement.
