During your 3rd semester, you can choose between:
- Design Research Project
- International Design Project
- Internship in a company
- Study abroad at another university
International Design Project
During this project work, you learn to independently take part in collaboration with a variety of actors and organisations in an international development context. Focus is on setting project goals, managing and staging an international design project in a multicultural environment. You learn about personal responsibilities and risks for engaging in engineering work in multicultural environments.
Design Research Project
During this project work, you learn to independently take part in collaboration with other researchers and actors and define your own role in the work. You learn to give reflected criticism to others in terms of design work and results. In this project you gain knowledge on how to set project goals and manage a design research project. You learn, first hand, how to interact and relate with other actors in the project.
Internship in a company
If you choose to do an internship in a company, you learn to professionally engage in the planning and staging of concept driven process. You learn to collaborate with different stakeholders in design and to define your own role in terms of this.
Moreover, an internship is an excellent way of building your network for when you graduate, and it will enable you to strengthen your resume in a hands-on way.
Study at another university
A study at another university is an excellent opportunity for you to gain valuable educational, cultural and international experience, if you choose to study at an university abroad. Aalborg University has established cooperation agreements with a number of Danish and foreign universities with a special view to student exchange.
"I completed an exchange programme of six months at the Aalto University in Helsinki, Finland. I can really recommend doing an exchange. The opportunity to be able to choose the courses and work in collaboration with real clients was hugely beneficial and I had many positive achievements."
