Benefits of getting an AAU student in a project-oriented course (internship)

At AAU, the period for a project-oriented course (internship) is relatively late in many students' education. It is therefore a professionally competent partner that you and your company have for a period of 3-6 months.

The student becomes part of both everyday life and development in your company.


It starts with a problem

AAU's students possess a high academic level, and basically only the imagination sets limits to what tasks they will be able to solve in your company.

Common to all AAU students is that they are used to identify and solving issues and tasks. This means that you do not necessarily need anything other than a problem or challenge to be solved before an AAU student could be relevant to your business.
