Internship is a voluntary subject in EABM curricula. Please choose a mentor according to your affiliation:
- Water engineering: Prof Karin Pachel and lecturer Valdu Suurkask
- Environmental management: Prof Enn Loigu
- Heating and ventilation: prof Hendrik Voll
In case you can find an enterprise abroad (e.g. in your home country) then you should use the forms valid in the particular enterprise or, if they do not have any, those elaborated in TUT.
In addition to the forms on the internship site, one model contract form can be found here.
Here is a good example of an internship report from September 2016.
Graduating in June 2019
Those interested in graduating at the defence committee chaired by prof Karin Pachel in January 2019 are asked to contact Maret Merisaar as the first step.

13 May 2019 - the topic must be approved via the electronic system. No more adjustments are allowed. Metadata (to be sent to Maret dot Merisaar at taltech dot ee
23 May 2019 (from 10:00) - predefence in room U03-235. The final version should be printed out but not binded yet (This date will be confirmed later, depending on the need to organise the pre-defence at all).
3 June 2019 - binded version of your thesis must be brought to room U03-236. One CD with the whole text + file with title page and summary page + list of key words must be added.
5 and 6 June 2019 (from 10:00) - DEFENCE in room U03- 222.
The sequence of the presentations by students (shedule of the day) will be announced later, after the predefence. 30 minutes will be dedicated to each graduate, starting with 12 minute long power point presentation by the student. This will be followed by questions from the Commission members and audience, opinions from Supervisor and Reviewer (incl. proposed grades).
Before the decision on the final grade is made, the students have to leave the room for ca 10 minutes, while the Commission will discuss each presentation/graduate behind the closed door. The way how the student was able to answer the questions or discuss matters that may be asked unexpectedly, has a big significance in the final assessment.
After this short break, the graduates and the audience will be invited back to the defence room, the final grades will be announced and there is the possibility to congratulate your fellow students and friends.
Undergraduate students are always very welcome to participate in the defence process as an audience, to obtain experiences!
